About

Our aim is to offer a place for photo enthusiasts to learn and to share across the diverse realms of photography. Our club will be meeting at 7 pm at  the St. Albert Catholic High School (note: NEW LOCATION) on some Wednesdays of each month, September to June. Check the calendar for exact dates. Occasionally, some events may also be online or outdoors.

We host a variety of guest speakers, often on the second Wednesday of the month, and workshops targeting a variety of skill levels, often on the third week of the month. You can read about recent years’ events in our news blog.

The last session of each month is our “Submissions Night”, a friendly competition, with both themed and open categories. It’s a great way to show your personal flavour of photography as well as receiving positive critiquing on your work. Please find more information on the monthly competitions on the submissions link, and view our contest winners in the galleries. The past year, there were online photo contests in our members-only Facebook group, but this year we will return to the in-person format.

Aside from the workshops, the club also plans photo field trips throughout the year. We keep the club’s calendar up to date, but some field trips are spur of the moment, and will be announced via email communications to all members. So keep your eyes peeled and your gear ready to go.

Maybe one of the worst kept secrets of the Photo Club is a little something called Photo Friday. For several years now, we have met at various locations in and around the Edmonton area at 9:30 AM, Friday for a 2 hour photo walk, followed up at a nearby spot for lunch. We are kind of a lunch club with a Photography habit. Everyone is welcome – hope to see you there some day, and who knows, you might just like what you will see.

New members are welcome any time of the year! Come check us out in person, or contact us. Membership dues are yearly; $60 for the year if you start in September to December, or $30 if it is after January 1st. You are welcome as a guest for two meetings just to see how you like the club. Once you are a paid member, you can submit your photos for Submissions Nights as well as vote for your favourites. Looking forward to seeing you there!
