Sign Up for 2021-2022 Season Now!

Dear Fellow Photographers,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 Delta Photo Club season. We hope the summer has provided you many opportunities to relax, work on your photography skills and you are ready to begin the new season.

With Covid-19 still prevalent and Kin Village Rec Centre still closed, we will continue holding all our meetings online using Zoom Meetings. We are finding this to be an excellent platform for our members to remain connected. As the Covid situation changes, we will continue to assess how we can provide the best club experience in the safest manner.

There are many great nights planned. Digital Nights, Workshops, Presenters, Outings and more. Our membership renewal process has moved online. You can join the club from our website at www.deltaphotoclub.com and click on the Member SignUp Form. After filling out the form,Membership Coordinator will be in touch to process your payment. Please sign up now so you don’t miss any workshops.

To start the new season, pick up to three of your favourite photographs from this summer and upload them to the DPC Dropbox. We will have a slideshow of the summertime photos during our first meeting on Sept 8, where you can give everyone the story behind your photos. Upload your JPG photos using this link: https://tinyurl.com/DPCUploadPics

Thank you all and we look forward to seeing you at our weekly club meetings.

Best regards,

Robin Bains

Learn the fundamentals of posing small and large groups as well as the art of lighting with fill flash, reflectors, diffusers and balancing natural light in any location. Greg will demonstrate the ease of getting all those great outdoor captures whether it be a large family or individuals.

The season’s workshops cover a wide range of topics from returning presenters such as Cole Thompson, Sharon Tenenbaum , and Liron Gertsman. Other workshops feature presenters new to DPC from as far afield as Atlantic Canada.
