Field Trip and Photo Opportunities


The Westchester Photographic Society sponsors field trips on roughly a monthly basis to locations that offer shooting opportunities for our members. Field trips may last several hours to several days, depending on the event and the distance involved.

*WPS Schedules Field Trips are open only to WPS members and their Spouses.

To suggest or lead field trips in the greater NYC area, or to make your required reservation for a field trip, please contact our Field Trip Chairwoman, Deborah Cohen or call our Field Trips Hot Line at (914) 827-5353.
