Our three pillars: to learn, support the community, and have fun.
WHAT WE DO
We meet (virtually!) at 7:00 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month from September to May (except in December when we meet on the 2nd Thursday only). On the 2nd Thursday, we have a guest speaker and a member showcase. The 4th Thursday is competition night, which is a golden opportunity for members to show their work and also to learn about the art of critiquing images.
We offer a variety of activities to our members: workshops, outings, and special interest groups. We also lend our support to community events, promote our members' work, and host exhibits.

WHERE WE MEET
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we don't know when we will be able to meet again in person. In the meantime, we will conduct club activities using Zoom.
FOTO FRIDAY: May 14
LOCATION: Ritchie Market, 9570 76 Ave NW, Edm
We can wander up 76th to 99th for more streets and alleys or head downhill and wander into Mill Creek Park. It’s spring. Be outside. See your foto friends. Everyone is welcome.
Can you create a story with a set of individual images that collectively tell a story in no specific order or present your images in a specific order to retell a different story?
Perhaps, you are telling a story sequentially with 5 or 7 images. Give a beginning statement in your first photograph, maybe some action in next three and a conclusion in the last photograph.
or, if your story is not action-based and it’s more conceptual, make a collection of 10-15 images in no particular order, but all should tell a similar or different angle of the same story. Consistency is key. Have fun, it's all practice.
We will continue to follow Alberta COVID recommendations... We will maintain groups of 2, 3, 4 or 5.

"Sometimes, having limited mobility brings its own rewards. Photo Friday this week was at Riverlot56 in northeast St. Albert, a wonderful acreage of trees and fields, great for hiking and birdwatching. I set off bravely down the trail after everyone else headed away and realized it was a bit too strenuous for me, SO…." for the full article
FEATURED MEMBER: Ron Ross
Ron has been a member of the IACC for many years, and served on the Board (including as Competitions Chair). Ron studied photography at Fanshawe College in London, after which he worked for a while in photofinishing and then decided to study archaeology. Photography still remains a major interest, especially the sea and shores. He looks at the impressionistic form of his subjects to incorporate colour and texture.
