The Cause:

LACP strives to build a community of dedicated photographers and to strengthen the importance of photography as an art form by providing education, scholarships, grants and public programs focused on youth and low-income families including free photography instruction for the Boys & Girls Clubs in and around Los Angeles and personalized mentorship for at-risk teens through the Spark Program. Currently, LACP teaches photography to over 100 Los Angeles children through its Boys & Girls Club after-school program.

Our goal is to raise $250,000 to move into a beautiful new facility this year in an effort to provide a true state-of-the-art center for the photographic community. In addition to our classrooms, we envision the new center to house a dedicated gallery space, library, café, tradition darkroom and expanded digital lab.

Celebrating 20 Years in 2019:

2019 marks the organization’s 20th anniversary, created as The Julia Dean Photo Workshops and founded in 1999 by Julia Dean, LACP’s Executive Director. The non-profit LACP was established in October, 2013 and obtained 501(c)3 tax-exempt status in August, 2014.

“When I started LACP, it was called the Julia Dean Photo Workshops because I was the only teacher. Many of you recently discovered us, but some of you have watched us grow over the past 20 years from one teacher to more than 100. We now offer 150 classes a year and a multitude of opportunities for photographers of all ages and experience levels. Transitioning to a non-profit six years ago (hence the name change to LACP) was a very important decision for us in our quest to support the photography community. In addition to our classes, we now offer free after-school instruction through 10 Boys & Girls Clubs around Los Angeles.” – Julia Dean, executive director
