Join us

We encourage all those who practice the art of photography, and those who aspire to start doing so, to join the Malta Photographic Society where they can meet fellow enthusiasts, expose their works, learn from the other members and further their knowledge of the subject. We invite you to attend one of our Thursday sessions as a trial.
