who we are

We are interested in all forms of photography, including black & white prints, colour prints, slides, digital technology, and the use of computers to enhance our photo taking experience. We like to participate in national and regional photo competitions, and we try to get "out in the field" as often as we can. We share our knowledge of cameras, lenses, filters, flashes and accessories, photographic techniques, and computers. We are open to suggestions from members / attendees regarding meeting agendas and field trips. Our members span the range from beginners to experts who make their living from photography.

meetings

The Prince George Photographic Society meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, from September through June, at the First Baptist Church, on the corner of 5th and Harper (next to PGI Foods).

Meetings start at 7:00 PM, and they usually last 2 hours. Visitors are welcome. Please check the Announcements page regularly to see if there are any exceptions to the schedule; sometimes we might go on a field trip instead of holding a regular meeting. No meetings are held in July and August, however we may get together informally for field trips.
