Welcome to Seattle Photographic Society

Founded in 1933, Seattle Photographic Society is a friendly group of supportive amateur and professional photographers. We strive to build both our skillsets and our community through image critiques, discussions, lectures, demonstrations, field trips, friendly competitions, and intra-club activities.

The club’s interests are primarily in the classical definition of photography, which has to do with the capturing of the original image(s) and post processing. Images generated by artificial intelligence are not eligible for entry.

Every month we hold several different types of meetings. Check out our Meeting Schedule to see what events are coming up.  




Education Night, 4th Tuesday, March 26: Small Group Critique.
We are going to have a unique Small Group Night.  We are going to divide participants (if possible) into their self-selected category.
Photographers will self-select into one of two categories:

  • Option 1: Who influences and inspires your photography?  Teach us about a favorite photographer by sharing one inspiring photograph by that photographer, and 3-4 of your own images which are, in some way, influenced by that photographer.  (Please label the photograph by another photographer: Inspiration Photograph by (Photographer’s Name)
  • Option 2: March is for Monochrome!  Dive deeper into this month’s theme by sharing 3-4 Black and White/Monochrome images for discussion


NW Council of Camera Clubs - Traveling Salon:
Here are the links for SPS to vote on another club’s images for March 1-31.  These are for prints to be shown at the NWCCC Annual meeting in November. Choose your top five in the first link, then vote for them in the second link.
