What we're about
What is the Toronto Photography Group all About?
The Toronto Photography group started in 2001 running on average 2-3 workshops per week throughout the year assisting photographers with access to professional studio time and full team (model , mua and Lighting assistant plus instructor/host). In 2015 Its sister group West Toronto Photography Group became a registered not-for-profit to further help photographers in the GTA. - West Toronto Photography Group is one of the cities busiest photography groups and we actively support monthly Free workshops for a charity food drive for a local food bank.
Our mission, is to enlighten and inspire the creativity within our city, have fun shooting and build friendships within the photography community while promoting imaging and photographic skills and education to all that are interested. We are creating workshops and programs that enrich our members, are fun to do and they assist/ pair up with other not for profit groups throughout the city .
Membership to the Toronto Photography group is free, and easily accessible, people become members by signing up to any event or workshop on our meetup page (http://www.meetup.com/west-toronto-photography-group/).
The West Toronto Photography Group has a yearly membership fee of $130 and that includes voting rights at the annual meeting on the types of workshops we offer to our members , with a strong focus on the sense of community and fostered friendships by bringing together photographers from throughout the GTA. Workshops will also be lower prices with more sales on last minute workshops and outings as well.
We assist people in building their own careers, many members in the community don’t have formal training we offer hands on experience in a professional environment.For some members photography is simply a creative outlet, a hobby something that helps them achieve balance in their life, TTPG provides a space to connect with others who share the same interest.
