The Springfield Photographic Society History
The Springfield Photographic Society was founded in 1937 and is a photo club made up of people from the photographic novice to the professional, who share one thing in common - a love of photography. The club's activities include monthly programs, comprised of instruction and critiques. These programs are intended to entertain and educate our members in the art and science of photography. In addition, there are various events and field trips throughout the year where members can share in picture taking opportunities.
Photography is the science, art and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.
SPS is a member club of the New England Camera Club Council
(NECCC) and is also affiliated with the Photographic Society of America
