oceanside photographers

always something to learn



 

David Cotton and his wife traveled around Vancouver Island’s North West Coast on the Uchuck III from Gold River to overnight at Kyuquot. We are always interested in receiving photos from any of your journeys.  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

Welcome

Our club is 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. 

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.

December Meeting
Dec 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

santa1This month is our Christmas social evening. We are repeating last year’s approach and assisting the Food Bank. 

You know that we are trying to be more connected to the community and with that in mind we are asking that you, if you are able, bring a donation for the Food Bank.  The Food Bank prefers receiving money and they have excellent buyers.  Nick Bosma will have a collection box for cash and cheques.  Please make cheques to the Food Bank.

 

 

The club is providing coffee, tea and snacks.

We do not have a speaker and will have a short business review followed by slideshows of the field trip to the Bowser Antique Yard, the Emotion assignment. We will also show the Best of 2017 images that our members have sent in.

If you are planning to add a slideshow, please contact Jack Harynuk – technical.opc@gmail.com

Before the show gets going, we’ll get the club business out of the way, then see the results of the assignment, the field trip and our favourite shots from December.

There will be coffee and tea at $1 but bring your own popcorn!
