Our Program

October Meeting

The Georgian Bay Photography Club will meet on Thursday, October 10th., 2019 in Collingwood at the Chartwell Georgian Traditions Retirement Residence (Theatre Room) at 57 Trott Blvd. starting at 6:30 pm.

 

Our guest speaker will be Marshall Postnikoff.(  https://www.photographybymarshall.com  ) A Collingwood-based photographer and visual opportunist whose subjects include Travel, Fine Art and Life Photography. He loves creativity and learning and thinks it's the combination of creativity, learning and photography that keeps his enthusiasm up each time to grab his camera to capture an image. Every time the shutter clicks is an opportunity for his imagination to connect with something in you. Please see attached poster.

 

Also during the meeting we will be going over some of those obscure definitions that may be heard within the club meetings at time, but no one knows what they stand for. You will know by the end of the meeting. If you have one you don’t know please ask at the meeting.

 

A quick introduction of the 2019-2020 Executive and a short explanation of their job will also be given.

 

The club is looking for someone to be in charge of the coffee for our meetings at Chartwell. Please offer your time to take on this position or we will have to cancel “coffee breaks”.

 

We will continue with Ernie McCay’s – “For Your Consideration” which will be presenting and commenting on a few of our members photos. Ernie could make use of a couple of more images (any image that you took at any time).  These images need to be jpg and resized to 2000 pixels long side and sent to erniemccay@gmail.com. You can discuss the story behind the photo when on the big screen at the meeting or just look at your image in wonderment.

 

Membership fees were due in September. Please bring a cheque or cash to sign up. The cost this year will be $50 for individuals, $75 for couples and students are free. If dues are not paid by the November meeting, your membership privileges will be revoked. Please download the attachment and fill out both pages and return them with your cheque to the next meeting.

 

Remember you can “save the world” by bring your own coffee mug to the meeting instead of using those Styrofoam cups. Thanks. Don’t forget to pick up the 2019-2020 club program when it is available at the meeting.

 

Just a note for December 12th. meeting, we may have our “Christmas” meeting as a pot luck and possibly in the Collingwood area, but not Chartwell, so please keep it in mind.

First meeting - new 2019, 2020 season

For our first meeting, September 12th, our guest speaker will be Wayne Fisher - https://www.fisherphotoinc.ca. His journey began in South Africa and through the lens he saw a divided nation. Behind the glass Photojournalism was a vehicle to the struggle. Acquiring a National Diploma in Photography (Pretoria South Africa) a brighter future was seen in the viewfinder in Canada’s uninterrupted beauty of a nation of color. According to Wayne, the best part of what he does is to create photographs that he is proud of and we are proud to have him as a guest speaker on September 12th.

 

For our 2019/2020 photo season we are introducing a new program which will be run during each of our general meetings. This program will focus on “fun and non-competitive” photographs from our members. Each month, starting in September members will be able to submit 2 or 3 photos which will be shown at general meetings. The photo category for September is Insects (all or part of): Examples include: flies, bugs, butterflies, bees, spiders, ants.

 

The categories are different than our inter club categories so as to avoid confusion. Also there is no time restriction on your photos, they can be recent or older, it does not matter. If you wish to submit a photo or photos, they must be sent to John McCallum before the end of the month prior to the next meeting. So, if you are submitting for our September meeting please send your photos in prior to August 31st and similarly if you are submitting for October, than John must have your photos by the end of September and so on. Please send your photos in JPG format 2000 pixel maximum on the longest size
