Welcome to the Southland Photographic Society based in Invercargill.

We have approximately 70 members, who regularly meet on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 7:30 pm (between February & November), in the Age Concern premises – 50 Forth Street.  Please refer to the calendar for exact dates (Meeting Calendar).  Also keep up to date with programme changes posted on Facebook each month.

We strive and work hard to implement a programme that will appeal to the many needs and aspirations of our members. Our programme is a mix of competitions, workshops, interesting speakers, photoshoots, training programmes, tutorials, social events, sharing and critiquing of images and much more.

It is very important to us that everyone feels welcome and included in the many activities that happen throughout the year, regardless of where they are at with their photography. If photography interests or excites you, and you want to improve and learn more about the art of photography, then we would encourage you to come to one of our meetings. We would love to meet you.
