Welcome to Kilkenny

Photographic Society

Established in 1983, Kilkenny Photographic Society (KPS) is a medium-sized association of photographers with skill levels from beginner to advanced. We welcome new members (aged 18 and over) to join.

Our aim is to serve our members by encouraging their development of photographic skills through education, exhibitions, competitions and friendship. The Society promotes member accomplishments within our community and with others who share our love of photography.

KPS are a member of the Irish Photographic Federation (IPF) and the (Irish) Southern Association of Camera Clubs (SACC) and we regularly participate in competitions. Members are encouraged to pursue accreditations from the IPF and International Photographic Salon competitions, with mentoring and advice available.

The Society meet on Thursday evenings at 8pm via Zoom, or at the Pembroke Hotel, Kilkenny (when restrictions allow). Throughout the year, we host a number of activities for members, including studio lighting and practical workshops and outdoor photoshoots during the summer months. We regularly invite a number of guest speakers to talk about their experiences and activities within photography, and guest judges to score monthly competitions.
