SSI Photo Club

July 11, 2012  - Minutes


1.  Opening remarks: Curt opened by telling us all how wonderful we are…. Eclectic Visions and Velo Village were a smashing success and our work was truly appreciated both for its artistry and its participation in the community…. Well done all those who took part in so many ways, not just by submitting pictures, but working to make the Club a presence; bringing food,…

Raptor Plan "B"

Well the first request I made had disappointing results - so lets try something else!

Anyone interested in going on a photo shoot to the raptor center this summer please e-mail me and let me know when you will be available to attend. Once I  get a list of interested persons and available dates then I can begin to formulate a plan. (Even if its just me and one other person). I think it should be before November. 


Thank You!

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.
