The Skokie Photographic Society was established in the 1970s to promote interest in photography, from both a technical and an artistic standpoint. We are an organization of photo enthusiasts. Most of our members work in digital format, including a few who experiment with enhanced Photoshop techniques, collage, and stereo photography. A Board of Directors meets once a month to plan and oversee the activities of the club.
The Club holds regular meetings on the Third Thursday of every month in the Community Room of the Skokie Village Hall. Our meetings are open to the public and feature presentations by photographers as well as others who may be tied to the photographic industry. Our own members occasionally present programs, and once in a while we hold our meetings next door in the Skokie Public Library.
Whether you are a beginner or expert, we believe you will find something in the Skokie Photographic Society. We do not provide darkrooms or studio space. However, we do occasionally purchase bulk items such as frames to enable our members to take advantage of discounted prices. Membership fees are $20.00 per individual or $30 per couple. Members receive a monthly newsletter, are encouraged to participate in several exhibits hosted by the club each year, and are invited to attend our annual luncheon.
