Helderberg Photographic Society is based in Somerset West and welcomes anyone with an interest in photography. We have a fun, friendly atmosphere and focus on the social aspects of photography, arranging regular day and weekend outings during which members can not only practice photography but also socialise and get to know one another.
HPS was founded in 1954 and is a member of the PSSA, but in contrast to many other clubs, we run our competitions on a purely informal basis.
We meet in the Somerset West library hall (behind the library) at 19h30 on the second Wednesday of each month. Visitors are welcome to attend a meeting to see if they might like to join. If you do come along as a visitor, please approach one of the committee members to introduce yourself before the start of the meeting.
We have two additional meetings of special interest groups each month. One for Black & White photography and the other for Audio-Visual presentations (setting photographs to music in a creative way). These meetings are at the same time and venue as our main meeting, with the Black & White meetings on the first Wednesday of each month and the Audio-Visual meetings on the last Wednesday of each month.
Should you be interested in joining you may wish to know that our annual subscription fees (for the 2013 year) are R250.
