About us

Beach United Church at night lit up 250The Covid-19 pandemic has restricted our ability to host in-person meetings. In 2021/2022 we will continue to foster a strong community of photographers by hosting speaker and demonstration sessions online until January. Then we plan to have in-person meetings unless the presenter prefers on-line or for contests.

See our Program for detailed information on our meetings.

Membership

Our season goes from the beginning of September to the beginning of June with two meetings each month. Because of Covid-19 and still the need for some online meetings, the Single full year fee is reduced to $75. Family is $110. Drop-ins are free for 2 meetings; after that a membership must be taken out.

Lectures / Guest Speakers
Professionals in the field of photography make presentations about subjects of interest to our members.

Members’ Nights
Members’ nights are your nights! This is your chance to share your work, describing what you sought to capture in your images.
 
Mentoring and Portfolio Critiques
Learn more about equipment and photo editing software. Improve your shooting skills through association with experienced and award-winning members. Learn how your images can be improved in group and individual critique sessions. Most meetings will have an informal  critique session of images submitted anonymously; a great way to learn!

Competitions
Competitions are stimulating, fun and can provide a valuable learning opportunity. We have three competitions each season which are judged on-line. 

Photo Excursions
The areas in and around greater Toronto offer lots of photographic opportunities. Outings may be proposed throughout the year, some designed to will help members prepare for upcoming competitions – so watch for announcements in regular club emails and on the calendar on the club website.  Members are also encouraged to invite fellow members on ad-hoc outings. 
 
Practical Seminars and Workshops
Club members with a special expertise often become teachers by sharing their tips and techniques with others. We will have a Members’ Night for these technical talks. We are also hoping to include a short (10-15 min.) tech talk during some of our regular meetings. 

Showing Opportunities
We always look for opportunities that allow Club members to showcase their work. We participate in several exhibitions each season. In the coming year we hope to exhibit at the Beaches United Church, the Beacher Café, the Papermill Gallery at Todmorden Mills, pending Covid-19 restrictions.
