oceanside photographers

always something to learn


Cliff Anderson sent in a group of images for us to enjoy this month. If any member has some images they would like to see in the next round of changes, please send them to technical.opc@gmail.com


Our club has recently incorporated and we are now the Oceanside Photography Society.  Over the next months there will be changes to reflect our new identity including a new logo and website address.

Rick Hulbert is coming back very soon!

The club membership consists of over 95 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 $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.

March Meeting
Mar 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our speaker for March is Bryn Tassell from Ladysmith. Bryn is planning on sharing and talking about the images he has captured on various trips, some of the challenges along with some tips and tricks he has learned along the way.

Bryn Tassell is a photographer who been pursuing a passion of documenting nature for 10 years. He has combined his passion for out door adventure with capturing the natural beauty of the locations he visits. His passion has taken him to remote areas on Vancouver Island to tropical jungles and desolate landscapes of Iceland. More info about his work can be found on his web site at www.BrynTassell.ca

We will have slideshows for the assignment, the field trip to Milner Gardens and the February favourites.
