Founded in 2002 by Martin Elkort, David Schulman & David Stork and modeled after the renowned New York Photo League, the mission of the Los Angeles League of Photographers (LALOP) is to expose the wider public to photography's essential social, political, and aesthetic values while forming a network of working fine art, street and commercial photographers who join together to discuss, debate and review photography, share and critique work, and organize photographic exhibitions about the greater Los Angeles community in all of its diversity.

LALOP 's most recent exhibitions are as follows:
2009 LALOP AT THE PIER, A Santa Monica Pier Centennial Exhibition at the historic Carousel on the Pier
2007 WITHOUT A PADDLE PART I, Mama's Hot Tamales Gallery, LA
2007 WITHOUT A PADDLE, PART II, Downbeat Cafe/Gallery, LA
WITHOUT A PADDLE was a series of exhibitions in downtown Los Angeles organized to mobilize support for the restoration of the historic paddleboat operations on the Echo Park and MacArthur Park lakes. LALOP worked with community organizations to garner publicity and strength with the result that the Los Angeles City Department of Parks & Recreation decided to include these operations again in their budget.
