Becoming A Member

  • Benefits of membership
    • Monthly competitions — first meeting each month

      • Competitions are judged by an outside photographer whose comments help members improve their photography.
      • There are four skill levels: B, A, AA, and Masters. New members are generally placed at level B and may work their way up through succeeding levels by competition results. Judging and advancement procedures are found in the competition rules.
      • Each member may submit three entries per month, divided as the member wishes among the formats (prints and digital images) and among the subject categories (Pictorial, Monochrome, Nature, Creative, Journalism and Travel).
    • Programs — second meeting each month. Programs are arranged to address topics of interest and to increase members’ photography skills. They include educational presentations featuring speakers, workshops, salons, demonstrations, and hands-on participation.
    • Opportunities to enter competitions sponsored by PSA.
    • Field trips: Local area and more distant weekend field trips give members opportunities to improve skills and enjoy socializing around their shared interest in photography.
  • An e-mail group for timely dissemination of club information.
  • A lending library.
  • The pleasure of discussing photography with people of like interests, as well as the stimulation of friendly competition.
