Edinburgh Photographic Society


The Edinburgh Photographic Society season runs from around September until April each year.  The society has a studio, darkroom, exhibition space and a library.

A Members' Exhibition of photographs is held each April and an International  Exhibition of photographs held at 68 Great King Street, each August, during the Edinburgh Festival.

Throughout the season there are meetings most Monday and Wednesday evenings and some other evenings, all at the club's premises, 68 Great King Street, about half a mile to the north of Princes Street.

The society produces an annual syllabus and there is an EPS web site, both of which give fuller details of the society's meetings, competitions and other events.
