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.  




End of Year Competitions - Our competition year runs from May 1 – April 30. The showing of competition winners and awards is scheduled for Tuesday, June 18 7pm via Zoom. Digital and Print submissions are now open. The submission deadline is Tuesday, May 21st, at midnight. Competition information is available on the SPS website under "Competitions" - "Competition Categories" - "End of Year"
