We are interested in all forms of photography, including black & white prints, colour prints, slides, digital technology, and the use of computers to enhance our photo taking experience. We like to participate in national and regional photo competitions (check out our Galleries page), and we try to get
out in the field as often as we can. We share our knowledge of cameras, lenses, filters, flashes and accessories, photographic techniques, and computers. We are open to suggestions from members / attendees regarding meeting agendas and field trips. Our members span the range from beginners to experts who make their living from photography. Come on out and give us a try, even if all you have is a simple point and shoot camera.
The PG Photo Club exists officially as the "Prince George Photographic Society". This "officalness" offers members transparency and a sort of guarantee about our intent. It also allows us to collect membership fees that we use for hosting events like the ones on our Events page. Regardless, we're just people who like capturing and sharing great images.
The annual membership fee is $40 for an individual and $70 for a family. This fee covers the period from July 1 to June 30 of the following year.
A lower introductory fee for new members is available from January 1 to May 31 each year. It is $20 for an individual and $35 for a family.
All membership fees received in June will be applied to both the current year and the next membership year. Membership renewals are due as of September 1 each year. A member who doesn't renew by December 31 ceases to be a member.
Members are entitled to participate in club challenges and contests. Non-members are welcome to attend a few club meetings to see if the club is for them.
Note: In response to the pandemic, the club executive extended 2019-2020 memberships for a full year. All current memberships have been extended to June 30, 2021 without additional fee. Top Menu
