The Photographic Section
The Academy of Science and Art of Pittsburgh
Since 1885, the Pittsburgh Photo Section has been devoted to helping photographers grow and expand their horizons. We meet three times each month, with our season running from September to May. Please look at our schedule and read our flyer/membership application (182K pdf). The membership is made up of amateur as well as professional photographers.
Meetings are held at the Mt. Lebanon Recreation Center (off Cedar Blvd), starting at 8PM. Learn more about us.
The schedule for the 2014-2015 Photo Club meetings has been posted.
We are pleased to announce we have been working with Pittsburgh Filmmakers to hang an exhibit to commemorate the 130th Anniversary of the club January 23 - April 10, 2015 (11 weeks). A group of the officers have been working with the Filmmakers' staff to develop guidelines for entries to the exhibit. We have prepared a detailed description of the timeline and entry process including how to prepare your images. This registration form must be used. Entries must be received by Ralph Gurley firstname.lastname@example.org no later than September 19. All participates are required to have paid their 2014-15 dues to be included. Please read this information carefully as it should address all questions. Our intent is to allow all members who enter images to have at least one image included in the exhibit.
