From September through June we meet twice monthly, usually on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month from 7.00-9.00 p.m. at the Vernon Community Arts Centre (to the side of the Science Centre), 2704A Hwy 6, Vernon, BC. Members are invited to arrive a few minutes early to socialize before meetings begin.

The first meeting of the month is our evaluation night. Members submit images on set themes for constructive feedback and evaluation by fellow club members. Having images evaluated helps you develop and improve as a photographer; learn what makes a good image great so you can apply these insights to your own efforts. Please see Image Submission Guidelines for details of our new image naming requirements.

Our second meeting comprises guest presentations, slide shows, photo workshops, hands on projects and photo challenges.

*Please note our December meeting is a members' showcase and pot luck supper which is held at the Vernon Library starting at 6:30pm.

Upcoming meetings:

   
May 24 Education: Photo Challenge

On May 24th we will have a fun challenge that will help review and integrate the education we have focused on this year. In teams, you will take part in a photo challenge in Polson Park. Following the photography portion of the evening, teams will prepare their images for a showcase competition with prizes for the best team images and finally for the best image of the night. To fit the whole event into the evening, we will meet in the parking lot at 6pm and begin ASAP. Please arrive on time as any delays in forming the teams will delay the whole evening. Bring your gear... you will need your camera, cards, batteries, reflector, possibly tripods, whatever you think will help you use what you have learned this year.
