If you live in the Perth and Perthshire area and want to improve your photographic skills, this is the place to meet other local enthusiasts. Join here.
Members’ interests vary from Landscape and Portrait photography to Wildlife, Street and Art photography.
We run a varied programme of talks, workshops and competitions through our Winter season and occasional informal photo outings over the Summer months.
Meetings are held on Wednesday evenings from October to March – normally in the Soutar Lecture Theatre at the A K Bell Library in Perth, but this season we’re meeting on Zoom. Links to join each the meetings will be emailed to members. Our meetings start at 7.30 pm, and normally end around 9:30pm – please check our programme page for more details.
We’ve re-named our Facebook Group, Perth Photo Forum, and added some notes on how we might best use it. The group provides an online place to learn from discussion of photography, by and for the people of Perth, Perthshire, Perth and Kinross, and surroundings.
The Group’s privacy setting is Private, which means you have to apply or be invited to join, and posts are not visible to anyone other than its members. However, anyone with an interest in the subject and a connection to the area is welcome to join. The Group is hosted by Perthshire Photographic Society (PPS), which also provides real-world meetings, activities and outings for its members (subject to covid) – see this Page @PerthshirePhotographicSociety. Many, but not all, members of this group are also members of PPS – it’s optional.
New members, including beginners, are welcome and there is plenty of opportunity to learn from our most experienced photographers. See our Information page for details on how to join.
As an additional bonus, the PPS is a section of the Perthshire Society of Natural Science, one of the oldest Scientific Institutions in Scotland and originally responsible for founding the Perth Museum. Membership of the Photographic Society automatically allows you to attend all of the PSNS lectures and events free or at discounted ticket prices.
If you are interested, or you would like to join, you are more than welcome to come along to one of our evenings to see what we have to offer or go to our Information page to read more about the Society. If you still have any questions go to the Contact page and drop us an e-mail. Keep informed by subscribing to our members newsletter, also on the Contact page. We also have a dedicated public Facebook page and a Facebook group open to members and those interested in joining.
We look forward to seeing you at our meetings.
Malcolm Lind, President.
