As a long-time CAPA (Canadian Association for Photographic Art) member, I have attended more than 15 of their summer CCCs (Canadian Camera College), which are traditionally held in all kinds of locations in our wonderful country of Canada. CCCs have taken me to Brandon, Fredericton, Quebec City, Nanaimo, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa and Edmonton, just to name a few.
It is a three-day conference with amazing speakers usually from the local area. Before and after the conference, local photographers take visitors on outings or trips, which is fabulous because the local photographers know the best times to shoot at the best locations.
This year, CCC'17 is in Ottawa for the three days BEFORE CANADA DAY. Canada Day is on Saturday, July 1, 2017 and it is our 150 year birthday. There will be one heck of a bash in Ottawa and the fireworks alone would be worth the visit.
I just registered at Algonquin College for both the conference and five nights in the residence. After the conference, we will be in our capital city for the celebrations. I am sure that the 50% off price on the room connected to the conference means that we will have the best deal in Ottawa.
I urge you that if you want a trip next summer, if you wish to celebrate Canada's 150th Birthday in grand style, and if you wish to attend a three- day photography conference, go on to CCC'17 to see for yourself.
Bill and I are pretty excited! Mufty
