always something to learn

The Snowbirds have returned to Comox for Spring training. They are here until April 25th (?). This is a sampling of shots from the past four years.

We are always interested in receiving photos from any of your journeys. If there are any panorama 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.

IPW – Island Photography Workshop

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 $48 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.

June Meeting
Jun 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our speaker for June is member Wayne Buhr. Wayne is an award winning photographer who has traveled the world capturing amazong images.

As he says, “Photography is my passion and language of choice. It allows me to communicate a personal perspective of my life experiences. I have tried to capture the common denominators of humanity and the similarities in the lives of ordinary people. Street photography gives me that opportunity.
