Welcome to Harpenden Photographic Society
Important Notice - Coronavirus Crisis
In line with Government advice there will be no further HPS meetings for the 2019/20 season. However we plan to run as many virtual activities as possible. These include rounds 4 & 5 of the Annual Internal Competition. We are currently looking at ways to run other virtual events. We will keep members informed as this work unfolds. See Forthcoming Events
Harpenden Photographic Society caters for all abilities – from beginner to the more advanced photographers. We are a lively and growing club of around 90 active members. Our meeting are held from September to June on the first and third Tuesday of each month.
Our varied programme gives members to chance to enjoy and improve their own photography, and to mix and chat with other likeminded enthusiasts. Visiting speakers are drawn from well-known amateur and professional photographers and give members the opportunity to learn and be inspired by work of many different types and genres.
You are more than welcome to attend three meeting before deciding to join, but note that non-members are not allowed to enter the competitions or exhibition.
For further information about the Society please use the contact form on this site.
