The PGH Photo Fair provides informative talks on photography at a variety of venues in Pittsburgh leading up to each edition of the fair. The series aims to augment the already rich art and photography scene in Pittsburgh with speakers who will focus on the nuts and bolts of collecting including connoisseurship, the state of the art, and an insider's view of the market.

The Speaker Series takes place each winter leading up to the Fair in late April. All events are free and at the Ace Hotel Ballroom. After each lecture, everyone is invited to stay for drinks at the hotel bar.
