About Us

UNSW PhotoClub is the hub for photographers from UNSW to develop and hone their skills, providing both an environment for discussion and the exchange of ideas. The club has nurtured many talented photographers whose interests cover a wide range of disciplines, including portraiture, photojournalism, fashion, wedding, street, landscape, mobile, astrophotography, advertising, videography and more.

Our Goals & Aims

  • Promote photography as a hobby in UNSW.
  • Provide a learning and sharing base for budding photographers.
  • Provide avenues to members who want to develop their interests in photography.


PhotoClub has won several awards throughout its history. We were awarded best Regular (non-faculty) Club at UNSW in 2012 and 2013, and achieved second-best in 2017. We were also recognised for holding the second-best off-campus event, our annual PhotoDash, at UNSW in 2017. Finally, we were an honourable mention for the Regular Club of the Year in 2019.

Are there any tutorials teaching you how to use your camera?

Of course! We sometimes hold a general camera tutorial at the start of a term during a Friday event. We also have base-level workshops, especially during the initial weeks of term!

Which brand of camera is the best?
The one you are shooting with!

You don’t have a DSLR, can you still join?
Yes – you don’t even need a camera;…just passion and willingness to have fun!
