Seven workshops and two skill development classes were held this season.
We enjoyed presentations on Fine Art Architecture by Sharon Tenenbaum, Black and White Photography with Russ and Wendy Kwan, and Story Telling with film director Nick Humphries. Francois Cleroux covered Tripodology and Greg Schurman did a critique session. Dennis Ducklow inspired us with his presentation on Multiple Exposures and Holly Egan covered Cell Phone Photography. We had two workshops cancelled – one for a print selection night and one because of COVID 19. Francois Cleroux ran parts one and two of his introduction to photography sessions called Photo 101.
Special thanks to Roger Lasell for doing the 50-50 draws. The proceeds helped fund the honorariums paid to the presenters.
Any suggestions for digital platform workshops for next season are welcome.

This was an unusual year to say the least. Usual have outings in September, January and end of year, but only was able to have one mid winter get together and one with Langley Club
However, outside of Club season, had outings in the summer of 2019 as follows: o Cloverdale Rodeoo Tour de Delta
o Boundary Bay Airshow
o Vancouver Mural Fest
o Richmond Festival
o Kenmore Photo Exposition
o Whidbey Island and Whatcom Fall
This is working out very well. Val has volunteered to help out with this.
