Read this if you have any Ferry riders photos in your stock that you would like to give to islands Trust.  They need the photos by the end of next week.


As part of Islands Trust submission to the province about BC Ferries, we would like to share images of what ordinary ferry travellers look like. We are certainly not cruise ship passengers, despite what the images on the public consultation documents seem to convey... 

We are looking for photos of people, perhaps a group of foot passengers with all manner of canes, buggies and bags to haul their gear.  Or a pickup truck getting farm supplies.

While crowd shots from a distance would not be an issue, if you do have any close-up shots where people are easily recognizable we would need permission to use their image. Email Laura for a release form which authorizes the Islands Trust to use people's images.

Images can be sent to Laura Stringer via e-mail:


Also any comments or question should be sent to Laura.  I have sent her an email saying that getting a release may have to fall to them as the photgrapher may not know how to contact the person.

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.
