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 Twin Cities Photography Group studio. Official address is 2500 University Ave/ suite S8 (lower level), St. Paul BUT, USE the bright green door on Cromwell Avenue! Park along Cromwell, University or Franklin heading west (DO NOT park at Memorial Blood Center-they tow). Remember, this is one block west of IFP, our former meeting place next to Hwy 280 N of 94.. You can find a map and directions here.
