Message from our President
Welcome to Preston Photographic Society website. It is a privilege to introduce you to a society that has brought together photographers in Preston for well over a century. Our website showcases the great work of many of our members and provides information about our club and what we offer. In addition, there are resources which lots of people may find useful.
The club provides an opportunity for photographers of any level to join together and develop their skills through an eclectic mix of talks, competitions, exhibitions, members workshops, photowalks and general social activity. We have a diverse and inclusive membership and anyone looking to join our club, either as a total beginner or someone with an established level of skill, will be made to feel more than welcome.
In these unprecedented times and in the wake of restrictions of Covid-19, I am pleased to say that we have continued to successfully offer a full syllabus. and are now opeating on a 'hybrid' basis with participation both face to face and via zoom. We are open to new members at any time and anyone wishing to know more is welcome to make contact through this site or to come along to our meeetings. We also have a presence on social media (Facebook and Twitter).
Thank you for taking time to explore our site and hopefully you will consider coming along and finding out more about us.
When I joined PPS in September 2018, I had no idea what to expect or whether I would be completely out of my depth.
My first meeting was a club competition night which confirmed that I was very much out of my depth, but the variety of images and the friendly banter got me hooked.
The club offers a host of photographic activities including expert speakers, technical events, club and external competitions, photo walks and social evenings. But much more than that, the club is a community of like-minded individuals with a passion for photography. There are photographers of all abilities from pro to novice, specialising in different genres and a growing number of women members. The inspiration and knowledge gained from being a part of this community is invaluable. From organised critique sessions to friendly support and advice, I have definitely improved my skills since joining the club.
My advice to those thinking about joining is - just do it! Your photography will be all the better for it.
