Membership Level:
Mailing Address:
Phone Number:
Address and phone number are optional, but having more than just an email address helps with lost and found items, maintaining contact during field trips, and emergency contact information. We will never sell or share your information with a third party.

For payment instructions by postal mail or in person, please contact us.

The Portland Photographic Society is a non-profit organization (formed as an Oregon Public Benefit Non-Profit Corporation) and all membership dues are used to pay for the costs of our events, such as renting meeting venues.  PPS members do not draw a salary or stipend, and work entirely as volunteers. Although we meet in a church, we are not affiliated with any particular faith or religion, and are open to all.

Membership dues are only $35 per year, and are billed on the PPS activity calendar, which begins in September and ends in August. Alternatively, a less expensive “non-competing” membership option is available at $10 per year, but does not entitle the member to display their images at club meetings (our “Projected Image” or “Print” meetings). If you are interested in everything the PPS has to offer, or just want to help support the group, the full membership is the best choice.

Of course, please feel free to attend one of our meetings before becoming a member (excluding field trips), so that you can see what we’re all about and if the PPS is right for you. If you have any questions about membership, or the PPS in general, please feel free to contact us.

Once you become a member, you will need to sign a liability waiver (digitally through DocuSign). This waiver is important as it protects all members, not just the organization itself. It can be previewed here.

Thanks for reading and we hope to see you soon!
