What we're about
Welcome to Richmond Photo Club.
To view a selection of our photographs, click Here (https://www.meetup.com/richmondphotoclub/photos/27319600/#454775299).
Founded in 1980, our club comprises a wide variety of beginners, intermediate and advanced photographers who shoot in digital format using many different techniques.
We meet regularly on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month (and often on the third Tuesday also) at 7:00 P.M. in the Painting Studio, second floor of the Richmond Cultural Centre at the corner of Granville Avenue and Minoru in Richmond, BC. We break for the summer, and do not meet during July and August.
Come along and meet us!
UNLIKE MANY OTHER MEETUP GROUPS WE ARE A DUES-PAYING CLUB
We are not a 'photo walk' group and do not accept non-members at our meetings, but...
You are welcome to attend two meetings at no cost before deciding whether to join the club.
Richmond Photo Club has a great cross section of members ranging from casual photographers to experienced shooters, who can help you by offering their expertise and experience. You can share ideas about various techniques, practice your photography on a field trip and perhaps teach others what you already know from your own personal experience. We give you the opportunity to compare your work with other photographers within the club and outside. You can also learn from the techniques that our members have used to improve their skills. We all have one common purpose... to enjoy photography!
Here is what you will experience at the club:
Evaluations – the club hosts about ten evaluation sessions in meetings during the year. We bring in experienced CAPA Certified judges who are members of other CAPA clubs in the lower mainland to offer constructive comments on your photography, as well as scoring the work based on the category you are in. The club also competes in outside events such as the North Shore Challenge, the Delta Print Challenge and the CAPA Pacific Zone Print Challenge.
Exhibitions – We present a large showing of our members' work annually in the Richmond Lansdowne Centre. This great event presents a chance to work with fellow members in the preparation of the exhibition as well as to interact with the community and to showcase your work. We also exhibit our members' photography in the Atrium of the Richmond Arts Centre annually. This is an excellent opportunity to show our skills to the Arts community as well as the hundreds of visitors to the Arts Centre.
Field Trips – We arrange these events within our club to local areas of interest. Members can also take part in CAPA sponsored trips organized by the CAPA Pacific Zone.
And much, much more – on meeting nights in addition to evaluations, we offer talented and informative guest speakers, conduct image critiques and arrange educational workshops and talks.
Richmond Photo Club is a member of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA).
Visitors are always welcome at our club meetings and we invite you to come along and meet new people, maybe to learn something new, and to decide if Richmond Photo Club is for you. You are welcome to attend two free meetings before deciding.
