About

University Photo Service is a University at Albany student organization that for more than five decades has been the student lens of campus culture.

We have our own office on the third floor of the Campus Center [305] which contains a darkroom and studio. As a group we have historically mostly produced work for Torch Yearbook, but also work for student groups, individuals, university departments, and the Albany Student Press.

Neither camera nor knowledge are necessary for membership—all are welcome. Current members range from bare beginners to advanced semi-professionals. For those just starting, the group can be a place to get purchasing advice, general photography knowledge, and studio experience, and build connections with other artistic individuals. For students studying photography or journalism, the collaborative possibilities are endless.

Come check us out! We are currently holding meetings on Tuesdays at 8:30pm in our office [CC305]. 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.
