    Not a member but did considered before to join...
    Heard from a friend that most of the members are experienced old timers. You can consider joining the SAFRA photography club through the courses/ photo trips they conduct.

    Not a bad deal, if you join the darkroom course, you get to use the facilities(darkroom, studio) for free. Got the info from a colleage of mine who is also member.

    oh SAFRA has a photog club? hmmm mabbe i should consider that instead... the old timers at PSS is a bit intimidating...

    i'm not thinking of the basic photog course, more for any intermediate seminars or class they might have. i also a bit paiseh to go for their outings leh, with my few lens and F90x (although i think that might be the best way to learn...)

    Yes, they have. Got this info from a ex colleage of mine. But SAFRA is also offering these courses at almost the same price as PSS. But my x colleage told me that the usage of the darkroom is free and sometimes the print processing chemicals are free as well......some of the members buy in bulk...so free for all to use it before shelf life ends

    Hi,

    I'm a member there at PSS. Activities are around twice per week and often, one will be a studio session while the other will be an outdoor shoot. There's often a lot of people at the shoot and for studios, can be a little difficult (I believe they are currently looking at ways to change it). As for the comments on all the 'old birds' at the club, there's really nothing much to worry about. 'Old birds' brings the added benefit that you can learn something from them. Furthermore, there are quite a lot of new and inexperience members at the club. Just a few days back, I've posted a couple of studio shots in the forum and they are actually taken with PSS You might want to take a look. They are in the Portraits and Poses forum. In case that you can't find it, I have included a link to them below...

    Studio shot - Cheongsam

    Studio shot - Lingerie
