The Society was formed in November 1985 to promote photography as an art form. In recent years the majority of members now use digital medium and there are members producing Black and White prints, colour prints and images for projection, as well as members processing and printing their own work.
At monthly meetings Society members present their work for critique and, when the opportunity arises, the work is exhibited to the public. Beginners are welcome and instruction is given, but most members learn from the interaction and exchange of ideas between members. Weekend field trips, and day trips, are organised, as are short workshops by Society members.
Since its foundation in 1985, the primary objective of Carrigaline Photographic Society has always been to develop and improve the knowledge, practice and appreciation of the art of photography.
Being a Photographic Society the emphasis is on producing photographic images, so no restrictions are placed on equipment used. As a result our members produce work using print film as well as the latest digital techniques.
Society membership is open to anybody over 18 years. If you are considering joining CPS we invite you to come along to any of our meetings on the last Wednesday of each month.
