What we're about

* Requires membership to participate, anyone can attend meetings

Learn, improve, and socialize. The Vienna Photographic Society is a friendly and welcoming group for all levels of photographers interested in improving their knowledge and skills. Our activities include photography workshops, classes, field trips, critiques, and challenging monthly assignments.

Our activities are designed to meet our goal to help each other improve and have fun doing it. Our last survey showed that we are 25% novice, 33% advanced, and 42 % expert. Mentors are available. Some activities require membership to pay expenses for projector, meeting rooms, website, competition ribbons and judge, speakers, and software. We have a Flickr Group to share our photos and solicit critiques and comments. We meet at 7:30 PM on most Wednesday evenings at the Thoreau Middle School, 2505 Cedar Lane, Vienna, VA 22180 to share ideas and to develop our skills with other photographers. Several times a year we have social events, and participate in local displays. Members can also enter Photographic Society of America competitions, and our members have received national awards. We usually have Speakers on the first Wednesday of the month, VPS member photo Competitions on the third Wednesday, and informal learning Forums on the fourth Wednesday. At 6:45 PM on the first Wed. we have a newcomers meeting to answer questions. The colored Links at our website include PSA Winners and PSA News; and our Flickr page. Check our website for the calendar, topics, competitions, newsletter, other events and their location, documents to download, tutorials, and discussion boards about a variety of photographic topics and shooting opportunities.
