Photographic Society

Welcome to the Central Coast Photographic Society or “Photo Society." We are a group of like-minded people interested in all aspects of photography. Our skill levels range from beginner to professional, and we welcome everyone to join and/or attend our meetings.

The Photo Society has a general meeting once a month. Presenters include professional photographers such as Nic Stover (a local photographer), Rad Drew, Michael Caroff, and others. We also feature our Photo Society members.

Our meetings are held at 7:00pm on the second Thursday of each month (except December). We will continue holding our meetings on Zoom for the time being.

If you are not a member of the Photo Society and have an interest in photography, we invite you to join our group. If you have questions, we would love to hear from you. You can contact us at

Thank you,
Ralph George, President
