Hermanus Photographic Society

We love Photography

Welcome to HPS


Welcome to the Hermanus Photographic Society (HPS). We love Hermanus and we love photography. If you want to enhance your photography skills, meet new challenges, or meet people with similar interests, please come and join us.

The club meets on the first Wednesday of the month (not January) at the Dutch Reformed Church (NG Kerk) in Church Street, Hermanus at 19:00. Please check our meeting roster for the event details. As a prospective new member you are welcome to attend one of our meetings before making a final decision to join the club.

Our club aims to develop an interest in photography and to master the technical and artistic challenges presented. We do this by holding club competitions, organising outings, and developing interest groups. You do not have to enter images for judging; a lot of technical information can be learnt from the judging section of the evening. This information will assist and inspire you to try different techniques and develop your photographic skills.

Our monthly meetings strive to cater for everybody… from the beginner to the advanced photographer. Everyone is welcome.

HPS is affiliated to the Photographic Society of South Africa (PSSA).
