Note: This calendar is subject to change at any time (e.g. due to varying uni timetables). At this point, events beyond week 6 are particularly tentative. Check event details to confirm location. Last updated 19.2.18.



Every semester Friday @ 4PM at uni (location TBC). We hold a range of tutorials based on themes such as those in the calendar above. Please bring your camera as there will generally be an opportunity to experiment! These events aim to make you aware of new opportunities, teach you new techniques and of course…have fun. And don’t forget the free pizza and drinks (alcoholic and soft) roughly every second week!


Almost every weekend during semester PhotoClub conducts PhotoWalks around Sydney to hone tutorial and workshop skills. They are great mediums for new and diverse photographic subjects. There will generally be an objective on outings and the best photos will be featured on our Insta – yes we will give you a shout out for free!


These are focused on base-level photography skills. There are 4 workshops:

  • A – Exposure: How to balance aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
  • B – Focus: How to get perfect focus!
  • C – Composition: How to turn nice photos into great ones!
  • D – Digital Darkroom: How to post process photos in LightRoom.


We hold short RoadTrips (generally 2 nights and 3 days) during the mid year and end of year holidays, to adventure into new landscapes with a group of like-minded photography and travel enthusiasts. Past trips have been Jervis Bay, Melbourne, Port Stephens, Canberra, Blue Mountains, Kiama and more!


Like prizes and competition? Well we’ve got you covered! With hundreds of dollars worth of prizes you don’t want to miss out!
