Simon Devitt Education Workshops Lectures


It is a great honour to lecture at the University of Auckland, where I have led a course in Photography of Architecture since 2011. It is a privilege to be able to talk about photography and share some of the processes I have developed over the past 23 years as a photographer with some of the School’s finest students.


I love to give back and one way in which I choose to do so is through a range of workshops in collaboration with different companies and organisations. Over the years, these have included photo-book workshops and courses in which the process and practicalities of creating your own photo book are covered in detail. 

In my workshops at Auckland City Art Gallery Toi O Tamaki, I have supported participants as they discover new perspectives, make a start with creating or further developing their own visual language, and make their own snaps more interesting. 

Canon and Momento Pro are among the sponsors that have supported these workshops.


I have been grateful for the opportunity to discuss my practice in a variety of contexts throughout New Zealand. These have included regional branches of the NZIA, the New Zealand Designers Institute and many other great organisations. I have also spoken at occasions such as The Design Assembly events and InFocus – an event for professional photographers, aspiring photographers and students in New Zealand.
