Orble began with a single Photography Group in Sydney Australia in 2008, and has slowly grown to enable groups in over 200 cities around the world. There are about 100 events run every weekend!

The network website at provides a sample of the kind of events that are run, and the different groups.

Orble is owned an run by an Australia registered company, Orble PTY LTD, and is based in the wonderful Sydney, Australia!

Our mission is to make the world a more fun and interesting place by fostering communities, and running amazing events for those communities that entertain, teach, and inspire.

Each Orble group has an Event Manager and one or more Hosts. Hosts prepare and run the events. Event Managers promote the events, share successful event ideas between groups, handle customer enquiries, and assist the hosts.

Event Managers
Event Managers are incredible individuals with exceptional coordination skills. Each Event Manager typically oversees several Orble groups.

Their responsibilities include:

  • Assessing and approving new host applications.
  • Providing support and answering questions from hosts.
  • Assisting hosts in selecting event themes, planning, and scheduling dates.
  • Ensuring each event is fully prepared before it goes live.

  • Responding to questions and assisting group members.
  • Fostering a sense of community among group members.

  • Hosts
    Each Orble group has one or more official Hosts who run the group events. The topic, time, place, and structure of each event is entirely up to each host.

    Hosts are passionate and creative people who are experts in their field. They are paid for their time and expertise.

    The core responsibilities of each host is to:

  • Organise a topic, time, and venue for each event.
  • Host the event on the day.

    If a host is active on social media, we also ask that they post to promote each event they are running.
  • How much are hosts paid?
    Hosts are compensated based on several factors:

  • The length of each event.
  • The number of bookings for each event.
  • Their average review score.

    Minimum and maximum event payments for each country are provided with the host position offer.

    All Orble hosts are considered Independent Contractors. They set their own times and schedules and use their own equipment. Each host is responsible for paying any applicable taxes in their local jurisdiction.

    Weekly invoice payments are made via direct deposit using or PayPal. The deadline for weekly invoice submission is Monday night. If you miss the deadline, no worries - you'll receive payment the following week.

    To submit an invoice, log in to and go to your Calendar page. View past events and click the "invoice" button.

    All reimbursements or expenses beyond the regular host payment must be approved in advance by your Event Manager before an event is opened for booking.

    Host often are events held?
    Hosts are encouraged to run at least one event every 3 months.

    Apart from that there is flexibility to run events whenever you like, however weekend mornings at 10am are usually preferred as that is when most people are available.

    The maximum events a group runs is usually one per week, however it depends on the number of group members and demand which can also be seasonal. The usual cadence is one event every 2 weeks.

    For groups with multiple hosts, the organiser will assist with scheduling to avoid conflicts and to make sure the right number of events are being run for the level of demand.
