Our History

The Crooked Tree Photographic Society (CTPS) is an open group of
photographers who reside throughout Northern Lower Michigan and who
enjoy getting together monthly at the Crooked Tree Arts Center –

Modeled after the great “salon” meetings that were hosted by Alfred
Steiglitz in his New York Studio in the 1900s, our meetings provide
members with opportunities to get together in an informal setting, discuss
photography with their peers, receive valuable reviews of their work and
increase their knowledge of the photographic medium. We also have
presentations by local photographers on various topics throughout the

There are no dues required to belong to this group and anyone is welcome
to attend our meetings as a guest. However if you want to become a
member of the group we request that you become a member of Crooked
Tree Arts Center if you are not already a member. All skill levels welcomed
and beginners are encouraged to attend.

With the support the Crooked Tree Arts Center, the Photo Society holds an
annual photography exhibition of member’s work in the CTAC Atrium
