Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Photographic Society (SAUPS) was founded by Ashik Mahmud and his helping buddies. He was then a student of level-3, Semester-1. He loved photography and he helped to realize the need of an photography based organization in SAU.
A facebook Group named Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Photographic Society (SAUPS) was opened by him on 3rd February 2014. After that, about one month of hard official works the Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Photographic Society (SAUPS)officially became a registered organization of SAU on March 2014.

History of SAUPS

26th October 2013 …
A facebook group was opened casually named SAU Nature & Environment Club for discussing the environmental issues of SAU.
Through this various photographs are being submitted in that group by the students of SAU. From here , founder & admin of that group Ashik Mahmud proposed to open a photography based group for photography related works. Gradually after some months later , submission of photographs in that group increased and thus a photography based group became an urgent issue.
After that a facebook Group named Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Photographic Society (SAUPS) was opened by him on 3rd February 2014. After that, about one month of hard official works Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University Photographic Society (SAUPS) officially becomes a registered organization of SAU on March 2014.
