Minneapolis Photographic Society is the only Twin Cities club devoted exclusively to print photography. We are members of the Twin City Area Council of Camera Clubs and the Photographic Society of America.
Through monthly photo competitions, programs, workshops and tutorials, MPS members fine-tune their skills and enjoy fun and friendship with other photography enthusiasts.
We meet at Minneapolis Television Network (MTN) studios. The address is 820 18th Ave. NE, Minneapolis. Directions: The entrance to MTN studios is located approximately one block west of Central Ave in NE Minneapolis. Look for the MTN sign at the door and giant Legos east of the entrance. Parking is on the street across the building, or in the lot next to and behind the building. Do not let the fence and barb wire deter you from entering the building. It is an architectural relic from the days when it was the Minneapolis Arsenal. You can find a map and directions here.
