2015 Schedule for GVM

Our hanging schedule for the Deli in GVM in 2105 is as follows:

January, March, May, July, September. November.

Last year we kept it to one person exhibits but before that we always asked for multiple photographers to participate and in that way more of our members would get a Chance to participate. We have spots for about 6 or 8 images and I would ask that interested persons contact me to arrange their showing. The way I would have to arrange it would be to select the first…

Camera advice

Can I get some feedback about a couple of cameras. I'd like to buy one and these were suggested by a friend.  Perhaps neither is a good choice?

Warning: Super bad computer virus found on Salt Spring.

A close friend of mine has been attacked with a "Cryptolocker" type trojan virus which has locked up (encrypted) ALL of his photos. Please read the following link info. Make sure you do a "cold storage" of your files on a removable storage device/s that are not regularly attached to your computer or you might be in for a nasty suprise of losing ALL your photos if this virus gets in your machine.…

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

Anna McColm

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.
