Photographic and Digital Artists (PADA) is an artist collective comprised of professionals who specialize in photo based art. As one of the eight artists’ groups associated with the Palos Verdes Art Center, PADA strives for creative exploration and excellence. The group achieves this through idea-sharing, technique critiques, guest speaker engagements, as well as participation in exhibitions, workshops, etc. Active participation ensures a mutually rewarding association.
PADA members approach photographic art in diverse ways, spanning from traditional darkroom-produced black-and-white prints to digitally crafted images. This spectrum includes light painting, scanner photography, collage, and mixed media, always rooted in photography as an art form. Their professional backgrounds encompass education, journalism, psychology, engineering, computer science, medicine, and fine art and commercial photography. Thus the diversity fuels their collective imagination.
Palos Verdes Art Center has a rich tradition of affiliated artists’ groups, but PADA, founded in 2006, filled a niche by focusing on fine art photography. Find out more on the website –
