oceanside photographers

always something to learn

We have another group of photos from Cliff and Carol Anderson, Corrie DeKluyver and a few others, they will be in place for the next month or so.  If any member has some shots they would like to see in the next round of changes, please send them to technical.opc@gmail.com


Oceanside Photographers membership consists of over 75 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.
