New Westminster Photography Club News

In September, the New Westminster Photography Club started its 2022/23 Program Season. It is a year of change with 70% of the leads for the Executive changing.

Our season opening meeting included an overview of planned activities and an introduction of the new Executive. The meeting also included Members Sharing of photography highlights from the summer.

The Club participated in the popular Fraser River Riverfest activities. Our club had a tent on the New Westminster Quay. Our tent included an exhibition as well as an assortment of photographs matted and under a sleeve. A success as photographs were shown to the public and some artists sold their photographs.

The club had created a new lead role for Exhibitions and our lead Anna Camporese took on the exhibition and sale as her first community event. Well done, Anna! There was a high level of interest from the community. We were exhibiting our work and in turn this initiated the public to show their photography on their cell phones. We are happy with all discussions of photography. As result of our involvement in the festival, our local newspaper ran an article on the Club.

The club also has increased its presence on social media channels. Two roles now lead our communications through Facebook (New Westminster Photography Club) and Instagram (

Our photography outings are popular and have included Vancouver’s False Creek Olympic Village and Granville Island. Not only is the outing fun for those who attend, the experience is expanded with members posting photographs to the Club’s Outings Gallery as well as our Social Media channels.

We have a full schedule of meetings that include those in a ZOOM format where we have out-of-area speakers and in-person meetings.

Richmond Photo Club News

We would like to thank our outgoing president, Neil leNobel for his leadership. During his tenure Neil provided sincere photographic encouragement, direction, and knowledge. His wisdom was delivered with humour, humility and honesty. His chairmanship of the Competitions Committee for many years and his continued assistance with this committee was exemplary. We are extremely grateful for his governance and are honored that he will be staying on in an advisory role as his time permits.

We are very pleased to introduce our new President, Julian Rozental. Julian brings with him a wealth of photographic & management experience. His leadership capability is already evidenced by the number of events RPC is currently moving forward on. Examples of these are noted below.

In September, volunteer members of the Richmond Photo Club contributed pictorial content to the London Farm Family Day, providing a large number of expert family portraits in a suitably set-dressed old barn and smithy. They also documented a number of various vendors, a rabbit farm, a Lego club, and a host of activities. There were rabbit-petting, spoon and egg races, horse-back riding for children, and a hot jazz band, for the amusement and edification of adults and children alike. Finally, our members gifted the photographic results to the City of Richmond for archival and promotional use.

A subsequent similar event entitled Richmond Culture Days, part of the Canada-wide Culture Days, was also served by volunteer members of the club. Here, free family photos were taken and will be e-mailed to thirty-three participants. Again, an illustration of how the Richmond Photo Club is an active and appreciated participant in local community events.

Some very exciting news is that The Richmond Museum is currently hosting an exhibit entitled “The Arts Live Here”. The event runs from September 24, 2022 for 11 months. The event highlights how the arts speak to us, connect to us and give us unique ways to understand ourselves, our communities and our city.

We are honored to have had the Richmond Museum reach out to us to request permission from a number of our club members to use their images in this event. The Museum discovered these images by perusing our club’s website, proving how valuable online exposure is to the club. Those members who images were choses are:

Urs Fricker – Traditional Taiwanese Dancers / Polish Festival
Albert Tsai – Purple Orchid / Red Tulip / Flying Butterfly
Hendy Wu – Look Forward On Stage
Eva Sylvanna Wong – A Longing Gaze

The exhibition hours are:

9am-9pm weekdays
10am-5pm weekends
Closed on statutory holidays

We have also included the artist’s images to this article.

During the month of October, a group of Richmond Club photo prints are on exhibit at the South Arm Community Centre in Richmond, BC. The emphasis is on scenes and events native and peculiar to the City of Richmond. This is an event that may be repeated several times throughout the coming year(s). This event provides an opportunity to display images from the Richmond Photo Club further promoting the art of photography at a local community level.

Looking forward, the largest upcoming event for the Richmond Photo Club will be the Lansdowne Photographic Show. This event will be held in Lansdowne Mall, Richmond, BC February 9 – 12, 2023. This public exhibit will showcase 96+ photos from Richmond Photo Club’s members. More on this event will follow as the date nears.

Membership Fee Increase

In April 2022, the CAPA Board approved the first increase in membership fees since 2013. The fees have been the same for almost ten years.

During that time, more benefits were added to CAPA membership, including the new Speaker Series, the monthly newsletter, enhanced and more accessible website, and social media pages for members to engage in the photographic community. CAPA continues to offer a wide variety of competitions exclusively for CAPA members and clubs, at no charge.

At the same time, costs have increased in all areas, but especially for printing and distributing the much-loved Canadian Camera Magazine. Even with all that is offered to members today, CAPA still remains entirely volunteer-run with no outside funding. Your volunteers work very hard to bring you the best membership experience CAPA can offer.

You are getting this notice now so that there is some time before the increase takes effect. Members who renew before January 1, 2023, even members who renew early, will have an additional full year of membership at the old rate. This is a one-time opportunity to get your membership renewed early at the old rate before the clock strikes midnight on December 31st.

Here are the new rates as of January 1, 2023:

  • Individual Memberships: $75
  • Family Memberships: $95
  • International Memberships: $60
  • International US Memberships: $85
  • Youth Memberships: $30
  • Libraries, Schools & Associations: $50
  • Small, Medium & Large Clubs: no increase ($65, $100 & $130)
