The Whitehorse Photography Club (WPC) is a member of CAPA, Pacific Zone, and has been operating in Whitehorse for more than 35 years with several of our founding members still very much active. We receive Canadian Camera as part of the CAPA membership and contribute to the quarterly Pacific Zone News.
We are a small but growing group that happens to live in a photographer’s paradise. We facilitate and host an annual Fall Weekend Workshop that is led by a nationally known photographer, and we participate in the annual Celebration of Nature and the North Shore Photographic Challenge competitions.
We are active September through May.
Meetings: Meetings are open to all interested individuals, no matter the skill level. We generally hold two meetings per month: Our guest presenter(s) and business/update discussions are generally the first Tuesday of the month; our assignment presentations and technical Q&A sessions are generally the third Tuesday. However, this can change depending on venue availability and other events (holidays, activities, etc). Please watch our meeting notice on the right side.
Our Annual General Meeting is generally held in November.
Membership: Current membership fee is $35 and valid from August to July. We generally accept memberships in an August/September membership drive usually attached to our registration for the Fall Weekend Workshop. Click here if you would like a downloadable MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION, or here if you would like the online version. Note that you can now submit your completed form by email and pay by email transfer of funds from your bank account. We also accept printed applications submitted with payment by hand (cash or cheque) or mail (cheque only). You do not need to be a member to attend our regular meetings, but membership is required to vote, have images displayed, or participate in major events or competitions (e.g. North Shore Challenge).
Note: You may encounter problems trying to submit the membership application form by email. Adobe Reader, in particular, does not enable this nor can you save the form with the inclusion of your filled information. You CAN print the blank form and fill it by hand, and then either scan it for attachment to an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or else just mail it or submit it by hand at a meeting. Otherwise, there are alternative free PDF reader applications available. For Windows users, PDF-XChange Viewer has been confirmed to work for submitting this form and Foxit Reader is another option to try. Mac users might try Skim.
