Melbourne Photographic Society [MPS] lucky and privileged to be based in a village and area, which has a vibrant community spirit, one where there are a large number of civic societies, clubs and organisations. Projects and events are a regular feature of these and MPS are often asked to support them by taking photographic records.
Participation gives members a wonderful opportunity to not only get involved with the local community but also to participate in an area of photography that’s outside their normal comfort zone.
MPS do have to be careful not to over commit ourselves and also to ensure we have sufficient interest from members, who are often busy and are unable to commit large amounts of time. MPS therefore have to consider carefully the number of events and projects we commit to in any given period of time to ensure we can offer the best support possible, not always an easy task when we would like to do it all.
