Each year parents of the graduating class from GISS take responsibility for hosting a grad night party.  This year the seniors selected the theme: Hollywood.

We have been asked if photo club members would be interested in forming a Paparazzi.  The hosts said," Three to six people would be ideal. We want the candid, paparazzi like photography but what we want the most is that the photographers adopt the persona and style of paparazzi."

The Graduation Party is June 9 at the Farmer's Institute.  Time Commitment:  9PM to 11 PM.  As soon as the photos are shot, you would download them onto a computer so that they could be projected that night.  No pay. Just fun.  We have not discussed any graduating senior or their family getting a copy of any photos.  I will ask that question and post the reply on this blog.

I have volunteered already as I think it will be a kick.  If you are interested, email Rumi Kanesaka at: 


If you are selected by Rumi to be one of the paparazzi, please let me know and our group will gather to discuss how best to pull this off.

Had to cancel (if you saw my last message). Too bad, sounded like fun.

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.
