The APS operates six different Groups, being Audio-visual, Contemporary, Digital, Nature, Print and Movie. Each Group provides a range of services.

A Group within the Society can also mean which media you choose to portray your images in the Folios.

Groups that use photographic paper are Print, Nature and Contemporary. Their folios are therefore posted.

Groups that use the online method of sharing images (in folios) are Digital, Contemporary, and Nature. The online folios uses a system of uploading images and sharing information online.

Audio Visual use software to produce the AV and then provide the final product on DVD.

Members can join any number of Groups (at a cost of only $10 per group).
