What we're about

Sydney Street Photographers aim to promote street photography and cultural engagement through practice and discussion.

This group is all about engaging intimately with the world around you in an attempt to capture the unfamiliar in the familiar, to find the unseen in the mundane.

It's about getting out onto the streets with equally passionate people and creating an invaluable social network, to improve your photography skills, without possibly feeling awkward or intimidated by the environment/ subjects.

If you like the sound of street photography then join up, it's going to be rewarding, and best of all, fun walking the streets of Sydney with camera in hand, and enjoying a nice coffee after an event to ask those question you have always wanted to ask a fellow photographer.

Assistant Organisers can organise Meetups and members can suggest Meetups that will occur if sufficient members would like to attend. Infrequently there is a clash of events and members have a choice of which event to attend. SSP prefer to provide a variety of opportunities to shoot rather than limit the choice to the first available event.

SSP Thursday - Photos1440 at State Library

Eggshell Cafe

Today we view the Photos1440 photojournalism exhibition at the Exhibition Galleries, The State Library of New South Wales. Admission is free. Marking its 10th year, the Photos1440 exhibition returns to the Library with a look back over the past decade of key events and moments captured through the lens of Sydney Morning Herald photographers. The exhibition features more than 200 images including award-winning photography from the Herald’s chief photographer Nick Moir and Gold Walkley winner Kate Geraghty. From the wreckage of the MH17 plane crash strewn amongst sunflowers to a poignant frame of Newmarch House resident Alice Bacon, who was the 100th COVID-19 victim in Australia, experience a tribute to photojournalism that has the power to inspire, to educate and to form opinion.
