Rebecca Rothey
When Rebecca Rothey is not occupied with her work as Chief Philanthropy Officer for the Greater Washington Community Foundation, photography provides respite from the pressures of her work. This is unsurprising, since she first learned about photography by watching her father develop rolls of film. She chose basic photography as an elective while attending University of Notre Dame, Maryland. She then used all of her electives on photography classes.

Rebecca is an award winning photographer who has many of her images published in an assortment of prestigious photography magazines. Among them are: Reader’s Gallery of B+W Photography, The Photo Review’s 2011, and Digital Photo. She has won awards in various competitions; Parisian with Poodle won a gold medal in the Worldwide Photography Gala Awards’ first Portraits and People 2011 book, honorable mention in The Photo Review’s 2011 Photo Competition and by the IPA Lucie Awards in 2006, Men Moving Mirror was awarded Best Monochrome Image of the Year by the Baltimore Camera Club in 2009 and was included in the annual single-image competition in Black and White Magazine in 2011. She is a member of the Baltimore Camera Club.

CPA members will receive a CPA email with a link to each Zoom meeting and any password required for access.
