Some of the photographers that have their images frequently featured there are members of the Sooke Photo Club, which is a Sooke based Meet-up group that is open to photographers of all skill levels.
The Sooke Photo Club has regular monthly meetings, conducted in an informal manner, where ideas and techniques are shared amongst club members in order to improve the skills of all involved and to promote photography in the community.
It is truly a grass roots driven organization, where members suggest photography related topics they would like to know more about, and other club members give presentations based on the wants and needs of the club.
In addition to the regular monthly meetings, there are often one or two group outings to various areas and events taking place within driving distance of Sooke. These outings are sometimes to practice a specific technique and other times to photograph an event or interesting location.
The Sooke Photo Club is always looking for new members, of any skill level and with any style of camera, from camera phone to DSLRs. Membership is only $20/year (or a $5 drop in fee) and the first meeting attended is always free.
If you are interested, or know a budding photographer who may be, contact the club at our Meet-up site online.
Since you’re here, we have a small favour to ask.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
