UPDATED! The NPA MEMBERS GALLERY! Check out the hundreds of great photos - and be inspired!

The most popular section of the NPA web-site is the MEMBERS GALLERY. Check out all the hundreds of photographs of NPA members, featuring the outstanding photography of Fivos Averkiou, the NPA's official photographer, with additional contributions from Eric Guy, Alex McKenna, and Michael Phillips, among others. The NPA Members Gallery will be updated after every competition this year, and will hopefully feature every single competitor. Here's a great photo of LUCY OAKMAN, 2015 NPA South West Trained Figure Champion, photographed by Fivos. As a way of trying to keep the Gallery up to date, only photos of NPA members from this year and 2014 will be featured; so enjoy the great photography, and be inspired and encouraged to be the best you can be, naturally, of course!
