Paraglider lift off by Leon Pelser was judged the best senior photograph at the August club meeting of Sasol Highveld Photography Club.

The Congress will take place in Sabie – a small country town nestled in the majestic Drakensberg escarpment mountains of the Mpumalanga province, South Africa.
Sabie is less than four hours’ drive from Gauteng and the OR Tambo International Airport, a relaxing hour’s drive to & from the Kruger National Park, and within minutes from a number of spectacular waterfalls in pristine mountain streams.
The venue for the Congress will be Floreat Riverside Lodge and it will be held from 22 September to 27 September.
Floreat Riverside Lodge is a great centre point from which to explore the Panoramic Route, with accommodation for those who want to stay in luxury or those humble travel junkies just sleeping over to explore the area.
We have invited some of South Africa’s most talented and exciting speakers to be part of the Congress.

Sarel and Maryna van Staden: Sarel van Staden has been a professional photographer for more than two decades and has been winning awards for as many years.

Obie Oberholzer: Petrus Cornelius Jacobus “Obie” Oberholzer is a South African photographer. Obie was born on a small farm outside Pretoria, South Africa. He studied graphic design at Stellenbosch University in the late
1960s, and photography at the Bavarian State Institute of Photography in Munich, Germany in the early 1970s.

Willem Oets: Willem was introduced to photography as a creative medium in 1991. He became known for his landscape and abstract work before venturing into his present, very personal genre of photography. He explores the sensuality of natural light and captures a fragile and delicate emotion in his pictures. He is the visual observer and responds to gesture and expression.
Paul Bruins: His interest in photography was sparked at an early age while completing a school project of building a pin-hole camera and developing and printing the results in a homemade darkroom. From then on, photography has remained an integral part of his life. Despite qualifying as a civil engineer, his passion for this creative art has meant he is seldom without his camera and his love for nature and the outdoors has cumulated in his extensive skills as an architectural and fine-art landscape photographer.
