Durham University photography society 2018/9



Hello, and welcome to the Durham University Photography Society (DUPhotoSoc) website. We are the only university-wide society in Durham dedicated to promoting and supporting photographers. Whether you take the occasional picture on a mobile phone, or you own all the latest gear, we are the society for you. Both novices and seasoned photographers are welcome to share their work, develop their skills, network and find job opportunities.


Since 2014 we have been dedicated to promoting photography within Durham University and supporting all our fellow photographers, from beginners to advanced members.


We have three main areas of activity to help us achieve our mission: Learning, Practising, and Promoting.

To Learn, we run regular workshops where we share our experiences, tips and tricks.

To Practise, we offer walks, day trips and our Annual Tour abroad to give members a chance to develop their new skills

To promote photography within the University and the local community, we organise exhibitions and are active in advertising our members’ work online.

We make photography more accessible to our members by lending out gear, as well as advertising both paid and voluntary jobs.
