Welcome to the Alameda Photographic Society

We invite you to explore photography through friendship, workshops, competition and learning programs. Look around, get to know our photographers, our mission, places we visit and the excitement of expression; better yet come to one of our meetings and see for yourself.


Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.

We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 7:15 p.m. at 2441 San Jose Ave. in Alameda, CA (with the exception of December and the fourth Tuesday in July).  Look for the side door of the First Christian Church.  It says Fellowship Hall; just come up the stairs to find our group.
