Stay tuned in January for an email announcing our new and easier to use website.  Instructions will be sent out on how to access the site and how to register.  This site will stay up for several months before it's terminated.

Welcome to the Springfield Photographic Society!

We are a group of photography fans that range from amateur to professional.  We love to go out on photo field trips and have a good time and share what we know in order to help each other improve our craft.  Read about how we started under ABOUT SPS.  Please consider joining our club and attending our meetings.  We'd love to meet you!

Photo challenge topics for 2017-2018 are listed here: 2017-2018 Exhibition Challenge Topics

Over the next few months we will have a new Word Press interactive and mobile friendly website!  The plan is in place and once it's up and running you will all receive an email on how to log onto it and re-register.  The site will be available for 3 audiences, the public, members only and administrative. Members will have the ability to upload their digital exhibition photos themselves.  The new site will have an easy to sign up for field trips page and an easier to view gallery. The site will also have a blog with several areas including selling photo equipment, workshops, technical questions answered, photos contests, etc.

You can view Hunt's Photo and Video Fall newsletter here.  It contains an interesting article and a photo tip by store manager Steve Bidwell.  

  • January 1 - Happy New Year!
  • January 5  to 31  - Our 43 Towns exhibit has moved to the Agawam Public Library and is available for public viewing from January 5 -31. The library is open every day except Sunday. Check their website for exact hours and directions. This will be a good venue for our exhibit, as it provides clear hours of public access and easy parking on site.  So if you did not get to see the show or have friends who missed it at the Mass Mutual Center, let them know about our new location.
