The Philadelphia Photo League is a cooperative of amateur and professional photographers who have come together around a range of common social and creative causes. The League was founded in July 2012 by a group of Philadelphia area photographers / activists who are committed to social change through the use of documentary photography. Our core mission is to help civic organization drive change through the use of photography.

Our organization was inspired by the historic New York Photo League which was active from 1936 to 1951 and included among its members some of the most noted American Photographers of the mid-20th century.You can read more about this group here... New York Photo League

We pursue our mission by creating a unique environment, where all types of serious photographers, using all types of media, can gather together to share knowledge, ideas and inspiration - plus enjoy a sense of community, while fostering positive change in our world.

We publish frequently on our BLOG, Photo Notes, so click that link to see the wealth of information.

We are actively seeking members, especially those who are eager to become members of our Leadership Team, in order to actively contribute to it's growth and influence.

If you are a devotee of documentary or street photography, and committed to social causes, please consider joining today.

Please Note:  We are NOT a "camera club"

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
