The Edmonton Photographic Historical Society originally started as a loose gathering of photo enthusiasts in the early 1990s. Some were collectors with varied collecting interests, some were interested in becoming better photographers, and some were interested in using various photographic processes. Around 1995 or so, we applied for and received official Society status from the Alberta Government. Our mandate is to promote the historical aspects of photography, the art and science of the processes, the equipment that was used and the photographers that made the images.
We meet from 7:30-9 pm on the third Wednesday of each month for most of the year with the exception of our summer break during July and August. We try to have a theme for each meeting where members can bring in equipment, photographs, or anything depicting that theme eg: folding cameras, stereo photography, miniature equipment, etc. Some times we have guest speakers. Of course, there is always a show and tell for your latest acquisition, photo layout, or anything else you wish.
You are most welcome to drop in to any meeting to check us out. There is absolutely no cost to join or belong. At the very least, you will meet a room full of photographically like-minded people. Hope to see you soon!
