Posted in: . | 0

Our planning for the remainder of our 2022/23 meeting season has been completed and the calendar on this page has been updated with the planned agendas. You can also download a Whitehorse Photography Club Schedule 2023_24 PDF document and print it or put it on your desktop, home screen or wherever for a quick and easy reference to the entire schedule.

Note that agenda items are always subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances or unanticipated opportunities. And there is a possibility that other, non-meeting activities might be added when we transition through spring and into summer.

We hope to see lots of you at the coming meetings.

Dec 13th: Photo Critique by Peter Mather

Posted in: . | 0

Renowned Yukon photographer, Peter Mather will be our guest presenter and he will provide constructive critiques of images submitted by our club members.

There is also an opportunity for up to 10 non-members to have Peter critique 2 of your photographs for a fee of $10. If you would like to participate in this, sign up on Eventbrite. Other non-members who would just like to see the photos and hear Peter’s analysis of them can also do so for an admission fee of $5 on the Eventbrite link.

There is no cost for our members to fully participate. You should have received an email with instructions for submitting the images you would like Peter to critique.

Anyone else who is interested in joining our club and enjoying this and all the other benefits and opportunities of membership can download and complete our fillable PDF Membership Application, email it to our treasurer and pay the $45 annual membership fee by eTransfer. But don’t wait until the last minute or it will be too late for you to submit your images.

This meeting will take place in room 1440 at Yukon University, which is larger than our usual meeting room. It will run from 7:00PM to 9:00PM on Dec 13th.

North Shore Challenge 2024 Cancelled

Posted in: . | 0

The North Shore Photographic Challenge has run reliably every year for decades as an annual competition conducted by the North Shore Photographic Society under the auspices of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art. The Whitehorse Photography Club has participated in this competition annually for almost as long, going back to the days when we had to mail out our original photographic film transparencies for our entry.

However, the North Shore club has announced that they have had to cancel the 2024 Challenge, citing insufficient volunteers and the need to respond to the rapidly evolving environment surrounding Artificial Intelligence (AI). They state that they intend to renew the North Shore Challenge in 2025.

Nov 5th: WPC Member Selections Meeting for Celebration of Nature Photo Competition 2023

Posted in: . | 0

The above named competition is again ON, and we again will submit, as a club, up to 6 (SIX) images as our contribution. We hope to again make ourselves known to all those BIG clubs from down south – we have done well out of the 25-30 participating clubs in recent years. Participating club members must be a permanent resident of either BC or Yukon, and may enter with only one club. As the name denotes – this is a nature image competition (no sign of man, domestic animals or plants). This competition is following Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA) guidelines and it is organized by the Lions Gate Camera Club.

We will hold our club selection meeting on Sunday, November 5. If you are a member you should have received information by email for submitting images. If you are not a current paid up member of the Whitehorse Photography Club and you want to participate in this and other club activities, you can join online using the fillable PDF membership application and paying the $45 annual membership fee by e-Transfer.
