A Club of Photography Enthusiasts
The VCC is the largest camera club in BC, with roots back to 1944. Currently approximately 250 members, who meet to learn, share, and promote the art and science of photography. There are a wide range of regular events such as workshops, field trips, competitions, and shared interest groups.
A wide range of topics are presented each month ranging from instruction on the basic elements of photography, photo editing, to advanced techniques for both shooting and post-processing.
The Club holds six monthly Internal Competitions through the year. The Club and individual members also compete in External Competitions with other clubs and though CAPA and PSA.
An opportunity for members to take photographs in the company of others. Two to four trips per month are held on weekends and during the week, both in-town and beyond. In addition, Tuesday AM shoots are held each week featuring specific subjects or locations.
Monthly specialized presentations from guest speakers from the community and beyond to entertain and educate members.
A monthly opportunity for members to share their images, techniques, knowledge and questions.
Shared Interest Groups (SIGs)
An opportunity for members to pursue their particular photographic interest and passion. Current SIGs include Nature, Creative, and Aerial Photography.
All the Club’s activities give members the chance to socialize with others and to share our common interest in photography. Many of our activities often conclude with a lunch or dinner to relax and review how the activity went.
