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.  




NWCCC Conference - Saturday, November 11, 1-5pm in Federal Way. Keynote speaker - John Pedersen. 

Education Night: Small Group Critique, Tuesday November 28
Theme: Focus on Colors  
Showcase your colors, e.g. fall colors, birds, travel, patterns, etc.  Small groups will discuss and critique images. This is a great chance to upgrade your skills and images.  Up to five images per person. 

Image Analysis Workshop - Learn techniques for analyzing an image in terms of its fundamental elements such as composition, lighting, creativity and more. Learn how to constructively and kindly share your observations with others. Taught by Photographic Society of America just for SPS. It’s a 3 hour virtual meeting workshop Saturday, Dec 2 @ 2PM. There is a waiting list. Contact Gary Marcos if you are interested. 


Macro Photography Group- Member Bill Wheeler has a Macro Photography Group. It meets once a month. If interested, contact him by going to "Send Email to Members" under "Our Club" and search for his name under "Select from Member List." (this guide will walk you through the steps.)
