Sidney Shutterbugs has a diverse membership from professional photographers having travelled the world capturing its essence through pictures to amateur hobbyists deriving pleasure from learning the art of photography. This eclectic mix has created a laid back, cooperative group. The club provides a venue for these like-minded people who desire to share new photographic techniques, help each other and learn new skills in a non competitive environment. As well as being informative, meetings are friendly with lots of banter and laughter.
September to June
first and third Thursday evening of each month
at Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney
Programmes vary from guest presentations to hands-on learning, as well as a show and share component for members to showcase their work. Ongoing digital contests are open to all members.
Monthly location Shoots with lunch or dinner afterwards at a nearby restaurant or pub provide the opportunity to share photographic tips and experiences.
Informal coffee get-togethers are held Tuesday mornings at 10:00 at Bevan Bistro in Sidney where members’ photographs are showcased on the café wall. These meetings take on a life of their own with photographs, ideas, suggestions and stories shared.
The club is civic minded and an active supporter of the community. Photographs created by club members hang on the walls of the Mary Winspear Centre, the Shoal Centre for Seniors, and Resthaven Lodge. Recent volunteering activities included the Saanich Peninsula Arts and Crafts Society, and the Saanich Peninsula Celebrations Society (a photo booth at Canada Day Celebrations and Breakfast with Santa event).
