Joining the SPS Family

The Southeastern Photographic Society (SPS) was formed in 1976 by photography students at the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center and has grown steadily to its current membership of around 200 amateur and professional photographers, nearly 1900 followers on Meetup, and over 500 followers on Facebook.

Paid members are eligible to submit images into the monthly competitions, compete in the annual “Photographer of the Year” contest, regularly participate in the monthly "Learnshops" and our gallery shows and attend various other members-only workshops and field trips.

Membership dues are $30/year for individuals or $40/year for families. New memberships paid between April and September will be discounted, and if you join between October and December you will receive credit for the following year.

Guests are always welcome to attend our "first Friday" monthly club meetings that feature presentations covering a wide variety of genres and themed photo reviews/competitions with critique by competent judges.

If you are not yet an SPS member and have an interest in photography at any level, please come by as our guest and see what we're all about! The “first Friday” club meetings and the “Learnshops” are held at:

Clairmont Presbyterian Church
1994 Clairmont Rd, Decatur, GA 30033
(At the intersection of Clairmont and N. Druid Hills Roads) (map)

(NOTE: This is NOT our mailing address)

Membership has its privileges!

  • Monthly club theme competition and image critiques
  • Monthly "Learnshop" classes covering workflow, editing, lighting and more
  • Participation in gallery shows around town throughout the year
  • Mentoring workshops
  • Exclusive member discounts at Showcase Photo & Video and other club sponsors
  • Other member-only workshops and events.

For your convenience you can print a copy of the application form. Complete the form and either bring it with you to one of our meetings or mail it to SPS at the address shown on the application.
