What we're about

Atlanta Photographic Society - Learning, Fun and Artistic Expression

This is the official Meetup for the Atlanta Photographic Society (http://atlantaphotographic.org/) (APS), member of the Photographic Society of America. APS is a photography club established for the enjoyment of people sharing an interest in photography. APS is a non-profit organization established for photographers from the "Beginner to the Professional". Our Master Photographers (http://atlantaphotographic.org/about/master-photographers/) help mentor your learning and success.

Members participate in monthly and annual photo competitions and photo critiques, educational programs, field trips, exhibitions (Salon and Photographer's Theme Exhibitions) and the annual awards banquet. Established almost 50 years ago, we are likely Atlanta's first photography club. Learn all about us on APS's award winning web site. (http://atlantaphotographic.org/)

Visitors are always welcome. Look us over as many times as you wish. Joining is easy.

Membership

We have a $30 membership fee per year for individuals, $45 for a family, $10 for students and $25 for e-mail members.
