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.

"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.
