Mission

The Society of Camera Operators (SOC) advances the art, craft, and creative contributions of the camera operator.

The SOC is an internationally recognized professional honorary society. The core activities of the Society are the annual SOC Awards Show, publishing the Society’s magazine Camera Operator, and our charitable commitment to The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

We serve the SOC membership through our commitment to advancing the role of the camera operator by providing education, supporting the development of technology and production methods, and honoring the members who have served before us.
