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.  




We have two field trips scheduled in April.

First, We will meet at the Seattle Downtown Library on Sat. April 20th from 10am to 1pm.  This field trip is in anticipation of the Projected Images Theme of “Architecture” for May. Let Jana Erikson know if you are interested in co-leading or attending. 

We are organizing a field trip to Kubota Garden in SE Seattle for April 27, 9-11AM. This field trip is in anticipation of the Theme of “Spring Gardens” set for Projected Images night in June. Kubota Garden is a gorgeous Japanese garden owned by Seattle Parks and Recreation, it is free. Parking can be limited so starting early. That same morning starting at 10AM, the Kubota Garden Foundation with the Parks Department has scheduled a tour of the garden (not connected to SPS), free but reservations required. Follow the link and click on Tours if one is inclined to do that as well. Contact David Bibus if you are planning to join this event.
