The Calgary Institute for Photography is an organization dedicated to inspiring, educating and promoting photographers. We hold seminars and workshops as well as other events for photographers in Calgary and region. We also produce a monthly newsletter that lists all activities that we learn about regardless of who is organizing them. This is to help keep the photographic community informed as well as develop a sense of commaraderie.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
