Living in Perthshire offers each of us wonderful access to the natural and built beauty all around us in Scotland. Members of the PPS have interests that range across the photographic spectrum, from landscape and portrait photography, to wildlife, street, and fine art pieces.
We meet weekly between October and March, at 7:30pm on Wednesday evenings with a programme of events that has something for everyone, including internal and external competitions, workshops, and presentations by members and some of Scotland’s leading photographers. Through the warmer months, there are opportunities for informal photo outings as well.
We usually meet in the Soutar Lecture Theatre at the A K Bell Library in Perth. However, throughout the 2020/21 season, we’ve successfully met on Zoom. The use of technology has certainly created some great opportunities for us all.
In addition to our weekly gatherings, we have a Facebook group – Perth Photo Forum – allowing photographers in Perth and Kinross and surrounding areas in Scotland to enjoy regular challenges and discussions around photography. It is open to Society members and others with an interest in photography who live in the area. Information about informal photo outings will be posted to the Forum.
If you live in the Perth and Perthshire area and want to share your photographic journey with local like-minded enthusiasts, I’d love to welcome you to our society. You are welcome to visit a couple of meetings before joining as a member or jump straight in with membership. Either way, go to the online form at join us to register so we can send you the link to our Zoom meetings.
Whether you are just starting your photographic path, or you’ve been happily developing your camera skills over a number of years, there are plenty of opportunities to share with others.
If you still have any questions, please get in touch through our Contact page – one of our members will be in touch.
I look forward to seeing you at our meetings.
Graham Robb, President
