Membership Information

If you are interested in the history of photography, a collector of antique and collectable cameras, images and equipment, a novice or a knowledgeable collector, come join the Chicago Photographic Collectors Society. You will exchange knowledge of basic fundamentals or advanced information of collecting, pricing and specialty areas with very knowledgeable people. Our members have a variety of expertise in fields such as stereoscopic, motion pictures, early photographic processes or manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon or Leica.

Our 8 meetings a year are most informative and our “Show and Tell” sessions are most educational. Lively discussions regarding all types of photographic collecting are always on the agenda. An occasional field trip adds more to the mix.

As a CPCS member, you are entitled to the following benefits: 

  • Free admission to all CPCS Camera & Image Shows. 
  • A discount on the purchase of dealer/exhibit tables at all CPCS Shows  
  • Regular e-mails and snail mail about society meetings, shows, and other events
  • Non-profit status for a tax deduction
  • A membership directory putting you in touch with collectors with similar interests.
