5 day sea otter photo workshop opportunity

For club members from two years ago you will remember the excellent educational program by Isabelle Groc.  Isabelle is a world famous wildlife photographer and naturalist who lives in Vancouver and on SSI.

She will be leading a five-day sea otter photo tour on the west coast of Vancouver Island June 24-28.  This is open to a maximum of four people.  A credit to our club that she is inviting Club members to join her.

The photo tour will take participants to one of the premier locations in British Columbia for photographing sea otters, in the heart of the site where they have been reintroduced in the late 1960s. Participants will have the opportunity to photo-document how sea otters transform their environment. On land and on water, you will be able to not only photograph sea otters, but also the landscapes these amazing ecosystem engineers reshape, ans well as a huge variety of other wildlife species.
The kayaking and the hiking in the area are fantastic, so lots to do when you are not photographing!

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.
