VCFCP Granvillle Island Xmas Bash

  • December 21, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's the first annual Van City Free Capture Xmas Bash!

Come celebrate the holidays with a photo opp followed by lunch at the award winning and world famous fabulous C Restaurant.

The C Restaurant is the founder of the Vancouver Aquarium's Ocean Wise program. Famous for its top notch seafood cuisine, it seems an ideal place for an Xmas celebration.

The Walk-about
We'll meet at the Granville Island Ferry Dock outside Bridges restaurant at 10:00 am. We'll make introductions and then set ourselves loose to have fun and photograph the Xmas madness in the market and wherever the lens takes us. We'll end the Meetup at the entrance to C Restaurant for a 12:00 reservation. Then will commence much merriment enjoying great food and beverages.

The Aim
The function of the group is to learn and practice the techniques of photography. This involves learning photography not only from your guides but also by sharing knowledge with your group-mates. The intention is also to organize and get to know new people. The attendant size of the meets will be small so participants can have the opportunity to get to know all their group-mates and spend time with a guide. If you select to attend a meet and then cannot make it, please be courteous to others in the group and change your RSVP status as soon as possible to allow others the chance to participate.

The Après-Meet
Please feel comfortable in posting your photographs and advising others; critical appraisal is helpful. What will also be appreciated are ratings and, especially, comments to individual meets and the group dynamic as a whole. This is important because it will ultimately add value to our meetings and improve our experience.

The Christmas Print Swap

As an added Christmas bonus, bring a 5x7 print of one of your pictures in a blank envelope to enter in a gift swap. Everyone who brings a print gets a print.

    Hi folks, thank you all for coming out to play. It was such fun to photograph with some snow and to get to know you. I hope to see you all soon. To Kris and Carissa and Shannon, it was great to see you and thank you for making VCFCP fun. I hope to see you my team mate soon too.

    So let's post some cool captures and tell us about them. And if you have any technical or compositional questions don't be shy to ask; we'll try to help each other develop our photographic art. That's what VCFCP is about.

    Merci beaucoup et à la prochaine!

    To reach C's after the photo walk, it looks like we'll either need to take the Aquabus ($3.50) or drive there?

    December 17, 2013

    • Kris M.

      Indeed. The Aquabus leaves every 7 minutes bound for Hornby St. with a short walk to C Restaurant.

      December 17, 2013

    • Rob

      Hopefully I will have my wheels back for the weekend Mr K . If things work out I will offer you a ride...

  • Anne

    oops…baking time came up!

    December 11, 2013

  • Filomena R.

    Is the lunch part of the photo walk reservation? So if we attend the photo walk and meet, are we automatically included in the lunch? Also Lunch is at our own cost and discretion, correct? I'm new to this group and not sure if it's same protocol as other groups.

    December 4, 2013

    • Kris M.

      Hi Filomena. The lunch is part of the photo walk. We have a reservation at the restaurant for the full group. Lunch is a la carte so please feel free to order as much or as little as you like. Looking forward to seeing you there!
