Program Schedule

The Westchester Photographic Society generally meets every Friday evening throughout the year with the exception of major holiday weekends. The meetings feature diversified programs such as talks by experts, workshops, demonstrations, model shoots, member showcases, critiques, and monthly competitions. Our weekly meetings are held on Fridays at 7:30 P.M. in Northern Westchester at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s Building located at 236 S. Bedford Road (a.k.a. NY Route 172) in Mt. Kisco, New York. You can find us by taking Interstate 684 to Exit 4 (Rte. 172-Mt. Kisco). Then turn toward Mt. Kisco (west) and drive 1 mile. We are on the left (south side of the road). Once each month we hold a Mentoring Session and a Birthday Celebration beginning at 7:00 P.M. Click here for travel directions and a map of the area. Come and visit – Guests are welcome at all meeting with the exception of the model sessions. Only members may enter work into exhibits, competitions and critique sessions.
