Membership with the Australian Photographic Society caters for enthusiasts, amateurs and professionals in photography. Membership types are;

  • Membership for Australian residents
  • Membership for residents outside of Australia (OS)

Included in your membership are monthly e-News, Free Expressions, and The Printer, delivered electronically; as well as the option to add a group and access our online webfolios and photographic community.

The APS currently operates four groups for members to join. The groups are Print, Nature, Contemporary, and Audio-Visual. Joining a group gives you access to the webfolios for those which offer this - currently Nature Group.
