Welcome to Harpenden Photographic Society
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 roughly 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. Programme 2023-24
You are more than welcome to attend up to two meetings before deciding to join, but note that non-members are not allowed to enter the competitions or exhibition.
