Photographic Society of Orange County was founded in 1993 by Leroy Hannon due to overcrowded photography classes at local community colleges. Leroy felt there was a need for a place for novice to advanced photographers to be able to expand their photography, exchange ideas, and appreciate other photographers as well.

The Society (PSOC) is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to furthering the art of photography.

Mission Statement: “A place where members can approach photography with a resolution to reach their creative potential." Through field trips, a series of workshops, and gallery shows, the Society hopes to expand the appreciation of photography throughout Orange County.
