What We Do

What We Do

It doesn't matter whether you own a Canon 5D Mk iii or an iPhone camera, you can take great photos if you are passionate about it. At PhotoSoc, we conduct a range of photography related activities including workshops, field trips, exhibitions, seminars and much more! Join PhotoSoc today and meet like minded people, talk about the latest technologies, and discuss which filters are best for your images.



Take a break, get together, and mix & mingle with other members, sponsors, the PhotoSoc committee and find out about upcoming events.


Get to know other members whilst adding to your photography experience. Some of the places we’ve been to include Tongariro National Park, Hamilton Gardens, the Auckland Fire Station, Bethells Beach, Mission Bay and Devonport, with more locations for this year to be announced!


PhotoSoc offers workshops for all levels; from the complete beginner to the advanced photographer. This year we will cover: camera basics, studio photography, photoshop tips & tricks, light painting and more! Workshops are free for members.


A golden opportunity for members to display their work, we have an annual exhibition and are annually part of the Auckland Festival of Photography.


We’re sponsored by White Studios, and have special PhotoSoc prices for studio space and high end gear hire! White Studios are premier dealers in Canon, Nikon, and Profoto equipment, and have a large variety of gear to cater for any shoot or video!
