Welcome to the Raritan Photographic Society. Based in Middlesex County we are New Jersey’s oldest photo club.

If you enjoy using your camera phone, point & shoot, digital SLR, or mirrorless camera and want to socialize with other photographers, while at the same time improving your photography skills, the Raritan Photographic Society is a fun camera club to be a part of.

In addition to monthly lecture and competition/critique meetings, we organize field trips and workshops. All these programs will help you grow as a photographer, whether you are a beginning or professional photographer. Besides the afore mentioned programs we organize a holiday party and an end of the year banquet, which are fun events to socialize even more with all the members.

Before you decide to join, you are welcome to attend a meeting. You’ll be able to meet our members and find out in person what we’re all about. Check the schedule of events to see when and where we meet.

I hope to welcome you at one of the meetings.
