Instructor needed for 12 year old

A lovely nurse at Greenwoods has a 12 year old son who does not do well in school but loves photography. She is willing to pay for some lessons in the basics to support him in his interest. Is anyone interested?

If so, you can contact me at and I'll be go-between.

Happy St. Patricks Day!

All my life I  have been able to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in a big way and in another in another life I always prepared a large Corned beef and cabbage meal (with my secret corned beef recipe)- but for now the feeling still remains and I want to wish all our club members a happy day and caution those of you who might be prone to this - to not drink too much green beer!

ERIN GO GO BRAGH..........

Minutes for March 13th meeting

2 new members, Carol and Elizabeth, were welcomed and introduced to the group.

Bob Rogers mentioned that at next months meeting we will discuss whether to proceed with the $15 monthly fee for renting a projector and screen or whether the club should buy a screen. Doug and Judy will look into the sources used by the school and the Film Festival....possibly cheaper.

There was no speaker for this meeting.

There was some further discussion on backing up our images, including…

August minutes

Pierre introduced the new team who will help shape the Club in the future.

Simon Henson

Larry Citra

Maggie Vancik

Roger Brooks

Maureen Milburn

Ellen Vesterdal

Justene Tedder

Plus returning executive members:

Pat Page

Kahsia Hartwell

Wendy Rosier

This group will infuse some new energy and direction into the Club. Feedback from club members indicates that people would like more interactive educational activities (workshops, classes, small field trips etc.) and maybe a schedule of educational opportunities ahead of time so that people can plan to attend.

The Victoria Camera Club has an external speaker every month and are willing to share their list of speakers so we can participate, at a cost of $5 a person. The club has funds to cover this at the moment. This would require using the  Zoom format (which has worked so well during this Pandemic).

Club meetings will resume in October, giving this new group time to work out their ideas for new directions.

Some people are cautious about in person meetings (because of health issues) and others are ready and able to jump back in. Maybe in person meetings and Zoom meetings can co-exist. Something to talk about.

Maureen has offered to look into a monthly newsletter with, possibly, more coverage than the website offers such as emails, using facebook etc.

Avril would like to see an improved use of the website: more posts, more comments, more helpful critiquing. We might need a refresher course to remind us how to give constructive feedback.

Doug has a show about Covid in September at the library -  in the Community Program Room. He will give a talk on September 7th at Noon. This will be previously unseen material, not the triptychs we have seen on the website.

Photosynthesis has a virtual show coming up, starting on August 31st. Some club members also belong to this photography group.

There is no theme yet for the photography challenge in October but when that is decided it will be communicated to everyone.
