Welcome to the Raritan Photographic Society. Founded in 1929, we are New Jersey’s oldest photo club. As a member of the New Jersey Federation of Camera Clubs, we can enter state –wide competitions and the NJFCC’s Photorama, held in April.

Our season of lectures and digital and print competitions gives photographers of every skill level the opportunity to improve their technical and creative skills while socializing with other photographers.
Outings and workshops are planned based upon members suggestions and willingness to organize them, or, if you chose, you can suggest an activity through our Meet-Up page.

We have two social gatherings, a Holiday Dinner in December, and the End of Year Banquet in June. The June Banquet features our “Best of the Best” competition where the judge chooses the best of the year out of all the award winners from the closing season. The Best of the Best image becomes the cover image for our program for the following year.

We invite you to stop in for a meeting and speak with current members. If you like cameras, photography and camaraderie, Raritan Photographic Society may be the place for you. Check the schedule of events to see when and where we meet.
