Southern Highland Photographic Society

Dedicated to the Art of Photography

Welcome to the Southern Highlands Photographic Society (SHPS). We are located in the beautiful Southern Highlands Region of New South Wales (NSW), Australia.

Whether you are a photography novice or an experienced professional, if you are interested in learning or passing on your knowledge, or if you just enjoy the process of capturing an image and / or the creation of your own vision, please come and check us out. You are welcome to come and visit us to see what we do before you decide to join or not.

We meet at the East Bowral Community Centre, 71 Boardman Road East Bowral, on the 3rd and 5th Tuesday of each month at 7:30pm

Southern Highlands Photographic Society (Inc.) acknowledges the Gundungurra people as traditional custodians of the land upon which we meet and extend our respect to their elders past and present.

More widely, we recognise traditional owners of all lands over which we practise our craft and acknowledge their care and conservation of the landscape we record.
