These pages are dedicated in memory of former Cary Photographic Artists members who have departed this life. We, the current members of CPA, value their contributions to CPA. Some of the individuals whose names appear here were instrumental in establishing the CPA. Others willingly  contributed their time and sometimes resources to enable the growth of CPA as the premiere organization of photographic artists in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina.   

These former members all contributed unique gifts to us. These gifts varied from member to member. The gift of seeing the world through their eyes, that informed our view of the world. The gift of trusting others to help them learn more about photography as art. The gift of teaching others, sharing their knowledge of photography, both their technical expertise and the pursuit of artistic excellence. The gift of their time and skills to keep CPA a viable organization.

Thank you, our dear fellow photographers. Rest well, but not too long. That special sunrise, sunset, starscape, portrait, landscape, abstract, or chance photo awaits your attention.

Bobbi Hopp - Founder of Cary Photographic Artists

Burnette Blakeley - CPA Vice President
