Monthly Meetings

For each monthly meeting, the schedule is as follows:

1) Welcome
A club member opens the evening, shares relevant news and upcoming events for our club.

2) Monthly Challenge
We go through each photo and as a group, we engage with constructive critique, compliments, suggestions and questions. Members are invited to talk about their own image and share their creative process if they are comfortable. Images shot with DSLR or mirrorless cameras are preferred.

3) Shoot and Tell (NEW!)
This portion of the evening gives our members the opportunity to share their images without judgement in a positive, supportive atmosphere. Whether it’s a quick snap of a location you would like to revisit when the light is right, something beautiful you captured recently in your own backyard or you want to share your progress of a particular photography technique, we want to see them and hear the story behind them. Images captured with any type of device are accepted, i.e. smart phone, dslr, film camera, telescope, drone etc.

4) Short Break and Print Competition/Viewing
Chat with our members while sipping on a tea or coffee and trying some locally sourced tasty treats while viewing our members’ latest photographic prints.

5) Photography Presentation
A guest speaker/club member hosts a short talk about a photography related topic. This month September), we will be looking at Camera Lens Filters. Alice, our president, will go over a few simple tips and creative ideas to help you improve and enjoy your photography. This presentation is suitable for beginners all the way to the more advanced. A summary of these talking points will also be emailed to all members and those who attended.

We hope you leave feeling inspired and ready to try something new!

Shoot and Tell – How To Take Part

Each month, we give our members (and prospective members) a safe and supportive space to share their photographs. While critique is important to learning and improving, as a creative person, sometimes you just want to share your images and your excitement with like-minded people and not worry that it isn’t your best photo. You may also ask for feedback on how to improve – the choice is yours.
