About Us

The Auckland Photographic Society is a nonprofit organisation of both amateur and professional photographers alike.

Our primary goal is to promote and support the art and science of photography as a means of creative expression achieved through awareness, education and participation. APS has a library of books on photography that members may borrow. A list of available titles may be seen here. Please contact the Librarian.

We strive to provide an enjoyable and stimulating forum through which members can receive practical information to help improve their technique, develop their artistic vision, share ideas and keep pace with industry trends.

The Society meets at St Pauls Church Hall, 12 St Vincent Avenue, Remuera, on the first, third and fourth Thursday of each month. The first Thursday is typically an educational workshop or a presentation by an invited guest speaker. The third Thursday is a regular competition night based on a set theme and an open category where guest judges are invited to provide critique. Doors open at 7.30pm.

Competitions provide members with the opportunity to view other member’s work as well as receive valuable feedback on their own work from judges within the photographic industry

Additionally, photographic outings are held on a regular basis.

Visitors are always welcome.
