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: July 30
THEME: Shoot Through the Day
LOCATION: Bunchberry Meadows (1B5, Range Rd 261, Spruce Grove)
TIME: 9:30ish (Bring your chair for a picnic.)
Bunchberry Meadows is a very special place. Located approximately 30 kilometres outside of downtown Edmonton, this 260-hectare (640-acre) conservation site is made up of old-growth forests, open meadows and wetlands. The forest supports jack pine, which is habitat for northern flying squirrels, porcupines and long-tailed weasels. The water and willows shelter a variety of species as small as tiger salamander and as large as moose.
While golden hour results in stunning forest photos, there are other times when you should make the most of the lighting. Getting out for a photography shoot in the middle of the day often results in images with harsh bright areas. However, in a forest, the canopy blocks the sun and creates dappled light across the scene.
As of July 1st, Alberta has entered Stage 3 reopening

"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.
