The coming year will see some welcome and refreshing changes to the CVCC.
Look for the new faces of leadership, anticipate more interactive photo
sessions, expect informative educational presentations, welcome guest
speakers, enjoy local and out-of-town field trips, and meet other
like-minded photographers who, like you, are passionate for the art and
technology of digital photography, photo editing and more.
There is also a large social component to our Club, so look forward to
meeting your club-mates during meeting breaks, discussing cameras over a
coffee during a hanging session at Rhodos, or debating the advantages of
your camera in the course of lunch on a field trip. We also hold 2 social
events each year – one in the summer and one for the holiday season in
December. These are well attended, fun events that bring our members closer
to one another.
Our growing membership provides a large diversity in camera preferences,
photographic styles, editing and sharing software and background expertise.
We are comprised of a host of interesting individuals who bring many life
skills to the Club, and share those skills with us – how great is that?
We are proud of our two major show events each year – Showcase in the fall
and ImageFest in the spring. Showcase is our annual show and sale of
members’ works, held at a local gallery. ImageFest is our annual slideshow
presentation, held at the Sid Williams Theatre. Both of these events
include entries from as many club members as possible, allowing the public
a glimpse of who we are and what great talent the club boasts.
Our meetings are held twice monthly, on the second and fourth Wednesdays of
each month (except July, August and December - one meeting only), in the
All Purpose Room at Mark Isfeld School, 1551 Lerwick, in Courtenay, BC. on
beautiful Vancouver Island. If you are 19 years of age or older, we welcome
you to come out and experience one of our meetings for yourself, and we are
certain that we will have something to offer you.
