ABOUT the WPS
The Westmoreland Photographers Society is an organization of amateur and professional photographers. The WPS is a great place to learn about photography from fellow members.
A few of the activities enjoyed by the club include field trips, workshops, exhibiting at different establishments, an annual Christmas party, a spring and fall picnic, monthly newsletter, additional classes and meetings, and a monthly online members photo challenge. All of this is included with your membership.
WHERE WE MEET
The WPS has several meetings per month. Our main monthly meeting is held on the second Monday of every month at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa. We meet in Alfred Hall in either room A30 or A31 on the 3rd floor at 7:00pm.
Throughout the year, we offer an experienced SWG (Special Working Group) meeting that focuses on news, software demostrations, and technical issues that members may be having. This meeting is on the last Thursday of each month at 7:00pm at Panera Bread in front of the Greensburg Wal-Mart, Greensburg, Pa 15601.
BASICS OF PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS
We also offer a Basics of Photography class that focuses on the very basics of photography and helping those that just purchased a camera. This meeting takes place March through November on the first Wednesday of the month in the town hall of Ligonier, Pa. at 7:00pm. Currently this class is full and closed to additional attendees. We will be offering this class again in 2021, keep checking back for more information.
LIGHTROOM / PHOTOSHOP CLASS
During 2020 we will be offering two 4 part classes covering Lightroom and Photoshop. The classes will start in March and run through November. Inquire for more information about our next class.
Every month, the WPS participates in at least one photo outing. Some are local to the Greensburg area, others are a little further away such as West Virginia, Ohio, and Maryland. We travel to the Pittsburgh area a few times a year to do street or architecture photography. We also go into the Laurel Highlands to do landscape photography. If there is a place you would like to travel to with us, just let us know.
