always something to learn


Wayne Duke sent in five images of an otter family he came across.

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

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 110 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.

Check here for the rules

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.

April Meeting
Apr 4 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our speaker for April is Lorna Zaback. Lorna picked up her first SLR camera as a teenager and immediately fell in love with taking pictures.  For Lorna, photography is not only about attempting to create beautiful and inspiring images, it is also a journey of discovery, of striving to find her artistic voice. 

While she will always appreciate and endeavour to capture the beauty of the world around her with her camera, her goal is to also use some of her photographic images as the foundation for creating works of art that are rich in colour, texture, and movement.

Be certain to visit Lorna’s website at this link.

We will be showing our Favourites from March, our field trip outing to Buckerfields and the Round assignment.

We encourage all members to consider taking a few hours each month and to contribute to the club’s management in the role of a director or a team player.
