Slideshow from September 08, 2022 Evaluation night

We suggest that everyone continue to stay safe and follow the guide lines and regulations of the local health authority.

We will be doing our Evaluation meetings online using Zoom.
Many of our members have found that the evaluations online give the viewer a much better experience.

Our Education meetings are still being planned at this point.
We hope to have hands on in person Education gatherings for 2022/23 meetings.


From September through June we meet twice monthly, usually on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month from 7:00 - 9.00 pm either on Zoom or in person / Hybrid at the Vernon Community Arts Centre.

The first meeting of each month is our Evaluation night presented using the Zoom platform.
Members submit images on set themes for constructive feedback and evaluation by fellow club members.

Having your images evaluated helps develop and improve as a photographer.
This can help you learn what makes a good image great so you can apply these insights to your own efforts.
Please refer to our Image Submission Guidelines for details.

Please submit your evaluation entries to the club email  -  [email protected] 

Our second meeting of the month is our Education night, which comprise guest presentations, photo workshops, hands-on projects and photo challenges, etc.

Our December meeting is a members' showcase and pot luck supper.
In past years this has been held at the Vernon Library starting at 6:30pm.

Our last meeting in June is normally a gathering at a local location for a photo opportunity and socializing as we head into the summer.

We also have a number of outings - normally once a month.  Details on the outings is posted on out outings page.

Other Educational and photographic Opportunities.
We receive offers that VPC members may be interested in taking advantage of - follow this link to the page.
