University Photo Service is [basically] a University at Albany student run group that does all kinds of fun stuff related to photography.

We meet together, hang together, travel together, shoot together, and work together. We have our own office on the third floor of the campus center [305] which contains a darkroom and studio. As a group we produce mostly for Torch Yearbook, but also work for student groups, individuals, university departments, and the Albany Student Press. With revenue we travel, buy equipment and darkroom supplies.

Neither camera nor knowledge are necessary for membership- all are welcome. Current members range from bare beginners to advanced novice. For those just starting the group can be a place to get purchasing advice, general photography knowledge, studio experience, and the like. For students studying photography or journalism, the possibilities are endless.

** Members who submit photographs to our sister group, Torch yearbook, receive free film and printing supplies. **

Come check us out- we are currently holding meetings on Tuesdays at 8:30pm in our office [CC305]. If this time conflicts with your schedule contact us and we will try to accommodate you. Also for those who would like to get involved- stop by the office anytime and see if anyone is in, members usually have office hours or are just hanging out.
