Regular Monthly Meetings:
Our regular meetings happen usually on the first Monday evening of each month with seminar leader and topic listed here on this web site and also on our facebook page. Please check calendar for exact date as some months we move back one week due to other events or holidays. There is time to socialize and network both before and during dinner. After dinner we have a mini seminar on various topics of interest to our members. Visitors are welcome.
We have selected a location to make it easy for both Dayton area and Cincinnati Photographer to attend. Please join us.

NEW "Mentors' Corner"
With the members of the PPSO gaining more interest in entering image competitions and wishing for more feedback on preparing their images for this purpose, we have initiated a "mentors corner" at all PPSO regular meetings. This replaces the monthly print competitions because we felt this would be a more helpful way to get valuable feedback for the growth of our members.
Members are invited to bring in their images for feedback by PPSO members who have experience in competition for valuable advice to strengthen your images and prepare your images for competition. This can also be your opportunity to get constructive criticism to improve your product for consumers (it does not have to be images for competition).
Images may be brought in as physical prints, or on your own electronic device like a tablet or laptop computer. They will be evaluated with you prior to the start of the evenings presentation (From about 6:15 to 6:45 as others are eating and networking).
