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 Wednesday of the month; our assignment presentations and technical Q&A sessions are generally the third Wednesday. 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 April.
Membership: Current membership fee is $40 and valid from August to July. We generally accept memberships in an August/September membership drive sometimes attached to our registration for a Fall Weekend Workshop.

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).
