What is Photrio

PHOTRIO.COM is a community that has recently combined three existing photography websites: APUG.ORG (Analog Photography Users Group), Hybridphoto.com and DPUG.ORG (Digital Photography Users Group).

APUG.ORG launched in 2002 and became the foundation of what would ultimately evolve into Photrio. The community grew from an 'Analog only' userbase to Hybrid (analog and digital) and now pure Digital as well. This diverse group of passionate photographers has reached 85,000 registered members and growing by the hour. With anywhere from 17-20,000 visiting photographers per day, there is always activity. Advertisers, pro photographers and top photography companies are encouraged to participate and engage with the community.


What is Alternative Photo Services

Alternative Photo Services is comprised of an old school darkroom that specializes in historical printing processes, and a gallery that showcases the work of artists in various stages of their career. As a lab and gallery, we are able to provide artists and commercial photographers with unique opportunities to produce and exhibit their work.
