January 2022 Meeting
Jan 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

This month’s meeting is cancelled due to the outbreak

Our speaker this month is Nanaimo photographer, Gordon Howe.  Gordon has spoken to our members previously and we were very impressed with his photography expertise.

This presentation is a travelogue of an area mostly untapped by British Columbian tourists, the Northwest. It is an area rich in indigenous culture, history, spectacular mountains and some of Canada’s great rivers such as the Skeena, Nass and the Bulkley.

In addition to photos Gordon will share tips on how to capture this rich indigenous culture in an appropriate and sensitive manner. Learn how to photograph totem poles within their environment for better impact.

The Northwest wildlife, scenery and culture is spectacular in any season as this multi-season presentation will demonstrate

We will be showing our previous months field trip, assignment and favourites slideshows.
