Photography

The Perthshire Photographic Society is one of the biggest and most active photography groups in Perth and meetings attract members from as far as Kinross, Crieff, Blairgowrie and Aberfeldy. If you are looking for a place to meet other camera enthusiasts and improve your skills – this is it.

The PPS runs over 20 meetings from October to April. We have invited talks from well known photographers, a series of print and digital competitions and members nights where folks get a chance to show their work and pick the brains of the experts. For more information please take a look at the PPS website http://www.perthshirephotographicsociety.org.uk
