COVID19 Update:

 

 During this time of COVID19 we are running meetings year around and have adapted our meetings to online video conferencing using the ZOOM platform. We expect to continue to provide our meetings on ZOOM for the foreseeable future and encourage new members from inside and outside our geography to join our club. With ZOOM we are able to have our regular Exhibition Nights with guest judges and our Program Nights with all manner of information and education, with ease. And, all from the comfort of our own homes. Everything we would do in person at our club we do on ZOOM!  Using ZOOM with APAC

 

It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out with your first digital camera or are a long time advanced photographer the club has members of all abilities and prides itself in mentorship. All of our events are convivial and the club is respectful and nurturing.

 

Exhibition Nights

The first Monday meeting night is for Exhibition night. On Exhibition nights, members submit their images for evaluation and critique by trained and certified independent judges and members earn points toward advancement. 

 

Program Nights

Program nights provide a wide variety of educational opportunities on all things photography for beginners and advanced photographers presented via guest speakers, members, workshops and demonstrations. Programs nights range from Show & Tells where members present images for the club to appreciate and help improve to lectures and demonstrations from expert photographers on image taking and post processing.

 

Executive Meetings

General club business is conducted at these meetings;

  • Held on the fourth Monday of most months
  • Any member in good standing is welcome to attend.

 

Annual General Meeting

Typically falling in June the AGM schedule is posted to our calendar.
