The Cape Town Photographic Society (CTPS) is South Africa’s first photographic club. CTPS is home to a group of enthusiastic photographers of all ages and levels of experience keen to improve our photography. Our program for members include competitions, workshops, presentations, photographic outings and audiovisual events.
We meet on the first Wednesday every month for Competition evening, where members are invited to enter 3 images, either printed or digital into either an Open category or against a Set theme. An external judge then offers commentary and a score. Depending on the score achieved, members may receive a Gold, Silver or Bronze award. These score levels depend on the members ranking.

Members learn about and submit audio-visual slideshows of their photos. They discuss what makes up a good AV and then watch and review each others AVs.
Education & Development
Meetings take place on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. Speakers and experts in their respective fields offer lectures and workshops to the CTPS members. Topics range from Photoshop/editing to subject specialties such as Macro or Portraiture. These will be communicated via Snapshots (our weekly newsletter).
Meetings take place at St Stephen’s Church Hall in Pinelands at 6:30 for 7pm.
