President's Welcome Message

The Photographic Society of Orange County (PSOC) is based in Fountain Valley, CA. We are a member organization that is open to the public.

Our members range from amateur to professional - all have a passion for photography. We provide the opportunity for members to learn more about camera functionality, photo composition and techniques, and post production photo processing from our guest presenters and critiquers, and fellow members.

Our goal is to have fun while seeking to develop our creative potential as photographers. We have a relaxed and supportive culture which is not competitive. We are a member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA).

Our club sponsors one show each year for our members to exhibit their favorite images in a public venue. We schedule monthly field trips to places in the Southern California area and plan two extended overnight field trips each year to special locations which provide a photographic experience. Each year, we also host an annual picnic in July and a holiday party in December.

We welcome you to become involved with our photo club.
