Street Photography

Street photography was a huge success at the first club meeting of 2018 with some amazing entries from Cuba to Afghanistan, Jakarta, Scotland and more.For some inspiration, visit on Henri Cartier-Bresson at

These entries are part of the 8 entries allowed- the exceptions (over and above) are 2 prints and 1 AV.

The promised youth injection materialised with a number of VSS photography students entering. To further advance creative and new-thinking we had Tanya and Brandon (ex VSS photography students) as part of the judging team, their input and judging was of a high standard and valued by our younger members.

Friday 2nd March is our next club meeting at VSS

At this meeting we will have our annual trophy and awards evening as well.

It is Summer and 'Bring en Braai' your choice of meat/chicken - VSS will do the pap and gravy thing.

Our first meeting was also a great opportunity to award accredited certificates to successfully part-time students who did the intensive photography and/or graphic design courses during 2017.

From left to right we have Kobus an Charlotte Smit receiving their certificates from Evelyn Gibson (PSSA Director) and Tanya Havenga (ex VSS graphic design and photography student as well as a top VSS model).
