Founded in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1952, the Photographic Society of Chattanooga (PSC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting the advancement of photography as science and art and to educating the public and the Society’s members about photography and photographic techniques. PSC’s membership consists of photographers of all levels of expertise – beginners, amateurs, advanced amateurs, and professionals – who associate for the learning of and the mutual enjoyment of photography. With such a diverse membership, PSC caters to a wide range of photographic interests. The club gives its members opportunities for the enjoyment of photography as well as opportunities for learning whether it be at the monthly meetings (where professional photographers from around the Southeast and beyond are invited to present the programs) or during PSC Field Trips, Socials, Beginners’ Boot Camp, or Image Evaluations. Visitors are always welcome and may attend two PSC meetings before deciding to join!
