Founded in 1931, the Schenectady Photographic Society offers programs and activities in the photographic arts for amateur and professional photographers alike. Over one hundred members from throughout the Capital Region of New York State share the theory, application and fun of photography at Society meetings.

Weekly Wednesday night meetings offer an assortment of programs, new ideas and techniques, and refreshment breaks for social exchange. Occasional field trips, photo shoots and workshops offer hands-on instruction and image making opportunities.

Five program groups - print, projected image, photo essay, mentoring and fine arts - help members expand their photographic vision and creativity through professionally judged competitions, peer critiques, group discussions and instruction. The print and projected image groups normally meet on the first and second Wednesdays of the month, respectively, while the third Wednesday is devoted to an invited speaker program. The other groups alternate between the fourth (and fifth) Wednesdays of the month.

Visitors are cordially invited to attend all meetings.

The Schenectady Photographic Society is a member of the Photographic Society of America
