Who we are -- The Northwest Photographic Society is composed
of a group of friends who share a passion for photography
. What we do -- That passion involves all types of photography
including Prints, Slides, Digital, Fine Art, Video, and Photojournalism.
We meet monthly to share our photographic work and to exchange
thoughts, ideas and information. We also arrange field trips
to provide photo-shoot opportunities
What is our organization? -- We do not have officers or
dues. Each monthly meeting is led by a different individual.
Membership consists of simply being on our list of phone numbers
and email addresses. (which we do not share) Members will be
contacted monthly by email to inform them as to meetings and/or
events. Due to limited space and time at our meetings, this membership
is by invitation only.
and When do we meet? -- We meet in the new Village Community
Building at Riverview Retirement Community 1801 E. Upriver Drive,
Spokane, Washington. This facility includes a big flat screen
TV and internet access. See the map on the next page to locate
the Community Room, which is just North of E. North Crescent
Ave, (about one full block North of E. Upriver Drive). Meeting
are on the Fourth Thursday of each month, (except November and
December meetings will be on the Third Thursday).
The meeting begins at 7:00 pm. If the gate is closed, try the
next entry to the West which will be open.
Bring your prints, digital images on a thumb drive, video clips,
or whatever you would like to share with the group. Most likely
you will have about 5 minutes to share your work with the group.
