Welcome to The Photographic Section

Academy of Science and Art of Pittsburgh

Look Here!!


Dear members,

COVID is still a problem as we all know.  Your Board met to discuss the events for 2021. We believe the club meetings this Fall have gone well.

Your Board believes we should continue virtual meetings for the rest of this club season. That means all club meetings from January through May 2021 will be via ZOOM. We will not meet at the Mt Lebanon Recreational center. We hope to resume the usual in person meetings in September 2021.

With that, there will be some disappointments but also some exciting new items coming up.

First, the disappointments. Your Board has decided not to conduct the 3 Print competitions for 2021. And your Board has decided not to conduct a Salon for 2021.

Now the exciting news. We will continue to have tremendous speakers for our presentations. We will also have 3 THEME events that are specifically targeted to 3 different photography genres. And we plan on another 10 minute member presentation night. The End Of Year judging for the images accepted from all 3 PDI competitions will still be conducted as in the past. We will also ask members to submit images for submission to the 2021 Glennie Nature Salon. And we are planing on at least 2 outdoor photo outings this winter.

Your Board wants you all to stay safe and also to continue to enjoy your photography.

Look for more information about the upcoming club events on the calendar on the website and the email newsletters i send.

Message to members

  • As we move into Fall, the 2021 – 2022 club year starts. We have many exciting meetings planned for the Photo Club this year. Many members are eager to spend time together catching up and discussing photography. We expect the Mt Lebanon Rec Center to be open for in-person meetings. But due to the continuing COVID concerns we will start the year with a hybrid model.” The meetings will be available live” at the Recreational center and will also be available “live” via ZOOM. Some members may feel more comfortable participating from home via ZOOM or it may be more convenient within their own schedule. And as we know, COVID may alter our in-person plans. Your Board members have worked throughout the Summer to plan meetings that can take place in either situation.
    We plan four club competitions this year. Two PDI and two Print competitions. Each member may submit three photos for each competition. Please see the Competitions section of this website for instructions and the Schedule section the dates of the competitions. The Theme events will also continue this year. Stay tuned for the topics.
    We are again very excited about the speakers we have planned this years and will promote this as a Speaker Series”. Please refer the club schedule for details.
    We will continue the very popular Member 10 Minute Presentations. Members will volunteer to share their interests and knowledge with all of us. Please let Galen Grimes if you are interested before September 15th.
    We invite all who are interested in Photography to visit the Join Us section of this site to obtain a membership application. Instructions are included. We hope to see you this year.

    Special Advisor to the Board
