Our three pillars: to learn, support the community, and have fun.
WHAT WE DO
We meet 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 are offering our members the option of attending events in-person or virtually (using Zoom).
In-person attendance is open only to fully-vaccinated participants and attendees will be encouraged to wear a mask. We will be spacing out the seating and adopting all other appropriate COVID safety protocols. Our primary objective is to create the opportunity for in-person engagement while doing all we can to ensure it is a safe environment. As the COVID situation evolves, we will revisit the format of our meetings as necessary.

Mufty's Musings (Sept 2021)
"September, for me, always was the real new year. New school years, new baby, (our first was born on Aug 29,) and new jobs. This year, I was really looking forward to getting together with Images members again and truly wish we could step up those old concrete stairs to the Pleasant View Community Hall and see our photo friends in person..." continue reading

Foto Friday (Sept 17)
THEME: Working on projects lets you think more clearly
LOCATION: Campus Saint-Jean (8406 Rue Marie-Anne Gaboury)
LUNCH: Café Bicyclette
In 1806, Marie-Anne Gaboury married the Hudson’s Bay Company voyageur and fur trader Jean-Baptiste Lagimodière upon his return to their hometown in Lower Canada, but refused to stay behind when he returned to the Northwest. This was very unusual at the time, as no French-Canadian woman was known to have ever been west of the Great Lakes, but accompany him she did.
What is street photography? Is it an urban exercise? Is it black-and-white or color? Is it collaborative or solitary? Can it be an intimate portrait or a long-term project? These are some of the questions we ask of our guest on today’s episode of the B&H Photography Podcast. And Gulnara Samoilova does not take the bait.
Enjoy the lingering summer days and see you all on Friday ~ smiles Barry & Hedy
