What we're about

Schertz Photography Society (SPS)

updated for 2019

We are an organization open to all skill levels of photography with a goal of improvement through the exchange of ideas and sharing of knowledge. The sole purpose of the SPS is to promote photography by encouraging friendly competition, and by offering instructional programs and challenging monthly assignments. We share mutual interests and participate with other photographic organizations as appropriate and beneficial to the organization.

SPS Premium Membership Meetings are held at the Guadalupe Valley Elec Co-Op (GVEC) on the 3rd Monday of the month.

The meeting starts at 7:00 pm. Doors open at 6:45 pm.
Meetings are held at the GVEC, Meeting Room, located at 908 Curtiss Ave, Schertz, TX 78154

We want to extend a warm welcome to others in the community with a similar passion for photography.

Come join us for a free meeting and meet some very friendly and knowledgeable photographers.

We hope to see you at a Meetup soon!
