We are pleased that you are interested in the Santa Rosa Photographic Society, a camera club for beginning through advanced amateurs 18 years of age or older. SRPS was founded in 1975 and serves the Santa Rosa and Sonoma County area. Our meetings are designed to further members’ interest and ability in photography. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays monthly, with a different schedule in November and no meetings in December. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the club meets online via Zoom. Otherwise, the club meets at the Luther Burbank Art and Garden Center, 2050 Yulupa Avenue, in Santa Rosa. (map)
The first meeting of the month features competition in print and digital image formats. The second meeting features a program, workshop, salon or demonstration. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a short business meeting prior to the competition or program. The year closes with an Awards Banquet and a program highlighting competition winners.
Members are notified of quarterly board meetings and are encouraged to attend and participate in discussions of club business. SRPS is a club member of the Northern California Council of Camera Clubs (N4C) and participates in their Bay Area-wide Competitions with other camera clubs.
The club encourages members to participate in the Sonoma County art scene and endeavors to arrange photography exhibitions featuring members’ work.
