Hey everyone! The Whitehorse Photography Club held their 2018 Annual General Meeting on Wednesday April 18, 2018 at 7PM in Yukon College (Rm A2204). The Minutes are available here.
The Club was pleased to welcome author Lily Gontard and photographer Mark Kelly on February 7th, 2017, where they spoke about the awesome power of collaboration. What started out as Mark’s interest in abandoned road houses had developed into a sizeable collection of photographs, but what to do next?. The answer involved pitching the idea to author Lily, who agreed to write the copy; and then through the power of relationships, the end product developed into the book Beyond Mile 0: The Vanishing Alaska Highway Lodge Community.

WPC members met at Yukon College on Sunday, January 22 to select the first round picks for the 2017 NSPC. Thirteen members submitted up to four images each, and those in attendance selected one from each member to advance. The following images will be submitted to CAPA judge Ann Alimi, who will choose the final six for judging in the North Shore Photographic Challenge.
On Sunday, November 6 the Club met in order to select our submissions to the Celebration of Nature Photography 2016 competition. The quality of images brought to the meeting was very high, and led to some incredibly tough decisions.
Thanks to all who participated, and congratulations to those members who had their images selected.
