Our mission at DPS is to encourage and develop interest in photography, in all its phases, from a pastime, to a fine art.

We provide regular meetings at which members, and the public, may meet leaders in the photographic field. Check out our Events section for more details.

We exchange ideas, provide instruction for one another and exhibit our work.

We also sponsor the annual Wilmington International Exhibition of Photography.
