National Photography Month
(Last Updated On: November 9, 2022)


During National Photography Month in May, focus your attention on sharpening your skills. Master the art of composition or learn how to use that fancy camera you bought. The entire month is dedicated to photography.

How you choose to participate is entirely up to you. While the tools used in photography have changed since its inception some 170+ years ago, the fascination it generates has not stopped. In fact, the more the tools advance, the more we seem to cherish a quality photograph.

Searching archives for a likeness a photographer took of a person or a place years ago that is familiar to us today will leave us awed. Many of us grab our phones to snap a quick photo of some of the strangest things – a delicate leaf in a puddle, an old penny or a frozen bubble. We capture moments in time and collect elements of our lives from the everyday to those landmark events.

Photography develops in us more than just a memory; it provides a with a way to touch time.
