always something to learn

Vivienne Bearder has many opportunities take photos around Victoria now that she’s settled in.  We’ll look for more from her again.  Thanks Vivienne!

We are always interested in receiving photos from any of your journeys. If there are any panorama styled shots in your archives, send them along for another display soon.  If any member has some images they would like to share in the next round of changes, please email them to technical.opc@gmail.com


The club membership consists of over 120 photographers from novice to professional and everything in between. Our members live, work and play in a photographer’s paradise, the east coast of Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.



We meet once a month in Qualicum Beach, with half the meeting devoted to education, and the other half covering club business. We also have a dedicated education meeting, optional assignments and one field trip each month, tying into special events in the area as much as possible.

The goal of the club is to promote learning, sharing and the enjoyment of photography in a convivial atmosphere. We welcome new members whether beginners or more experienced photographers. We encourage all members to share their knowledge with each other whether photography or use of their camera and equipment.

Membership is $36 per person per year (May to April incl.) plus a club name badge for a total of $50 and is open to anyone interested in photography. The membership fee is prorated between June and April.  Please contact the membership director for details – membership.opc@gmail.com.

Guests are allowed to come to two meetings at no charge; after which they must pay a membership fee in order to continue attending. Members are required to sign a membership form.
