Competition Nights

Each member brings one or two images for the membership to provide constructive critiques. It is through this activity that one can gain tips in improving their photographic techniques.

Theme Assignments

For assigned subjects we will pull either a topic, photography genre, or creativity exercise out of a “grab bag” and in the following month, members will submit up to 3 images that we will discuss.

Program Nights

Guests from other clubs that are located within the Fraser Valley and/or club members are invited to present a topic about photography or to demonstrate a technique.

Group Outings

Field trips are planned for each month. This is where members gather into car pools and travel to a special designated location. Member with more experience will share with the newer members on how to use the light most effectively to create an image.

Services

Members within the club will gladly assist the beginner in learning more about cameras; tips for operating various pieces of equipment as well share their experience in obtaining that winning image.

Other Opportunities

The members’ photographic images can be viewed at the local library and on occasion at art galleries.
