"We search for truth, sometimes we find beauty."
  - Lisette Model

I am very interested in both truth and beauty. People become more beautiful the longer I look at them. I feel I can see them in all the ages of their lives. I see them old when they are young, and young when they have become old. I can imagine them in the most beautiful ways.
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but truth emerges when beauty is in the heart as well.
  - Doug Schwab

A Little About CPG

The Creative Photographers Guild is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization of photographers, from novice to professional, whose mission is to bring the universally expressive power of photography to the community.

The Guild also aims to provide a vibrant avenue for the promotion and appreciation of the creative and innovative world of photography to the greater New York community, especially Staten Island.

In service of those goals, the Guild opened the CPG Gallery in March of 2009 on Staten Island's arts-oriented North Shore.

Members also seek other venues in which to exhibit photographs, promote public awareness of the unique artistic qualities of photography, support other artists and arts projects, and share skills and information with the community at large.

All are encouraged to visit the gallery and speak with the photographers, one of whom is always on hand for discussions.
