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:
