Carol’s interest in photography began in the early 1980’s, when she bought her first camera, a Nikon, after graduating from Nursing.

Enter a new Nikon camera, photography lessons and membership in the Surrey Photography Club. Carol is now the Field trip and Membership Coordinator for the club. She’s also a member of the Langley Camera Club and Bridge lake Club in BC’s Cariboo.

Tanner Susi
District Rep. Tanner Sussi – Lower Mainland, Pacific Zone

Tanner Sussi is our newest District Representative for the Lower Mainland in the Pacific Zone.

Tanner’s photographic career ideas were put on hold for 20 years while her career with the government of Canada kept her busy. During this time she was very active, enjoying everything the outdoors offered. In 2014 she took early retirement due to an injury and was still able to enjoy walking. Slowing to this pace, Tanner noticed many beautiful things and bought a digital camera to capture them. Now her walks were even more interesting and she returned to her original interest in photography that had spawned earlier.

Tanner joined a Facebook group in order to learn digital processing. Her progress with all things digital surged leading her to join the Surrey and Langley Photography clubs, where she began to participate in competitions and displaying prints in art galleries.

In 2018 Tanner took the CAPA judging course and has recently completed the requirements to become a Certified CAPA judge.

Thank you for permitting me to make this presentation tonight to Kayla Stevenson.

In her teen years, Kayla became interested in photography using her Kodak Brownie to record family outings.

She has evolved from film to the digital world with her current collection of image capturing devices – Canon 7D Mark II, Sony A6000 and iphone X.

Kayla’s love for photography and travel have been an excellent combination. She has won many local, regional and nation awards for her outstanding photography.

To enhance her interest in photography, Kayla is an active member in both the Clear Focus Camera Club and the Langley Camera Club. On many occasions, she has volunteered to make presentations to share her experience and knowledge to many.

Her volunteering has greatly contributed to promoting photography locally and nationally. Kayla volunteered postions include:

  • Web Design and Webmaster for the Langley Camera Club
  • Served two terms as the Co-President of the Clear Focus Camera
  • CAPA website gallery manager (2012 – 2017)
  • Member of Communications Committee & Website Assistant for the CAPA Photo Expo in 2015
  • Member of the new CAPA website Committee in 2017
  • CAPA’s Director of Membership for the past three years and a respected member of the CAPA Board of Directors

In 2015, she was awarded the CAPA Associate Fellowship Honour (ACAPA) based on her photographic achievements and contributions.

Then in 2019, Kayla participated in our new ‘judges-in-training’ program and met all requirements which resulted in her being designated as a Certified CAPA Judge.

In late 2019, the CAPA Honours Committee received a nomination to recognize the outstanding and tireless efforts of Kayla Stevenson to promote CAPA membership across Canada. Her professional and initiative is an inspiration to others.

On behalf of the CAPA Board of Directors, I am pleased to present Kayla with her Fellowship Honour Certificate (FCAPA) and pin. The FCAPA designation and certificate is awarded for exceptional photographic achievement and photographic service to the Canadian Association for Photograph Art (CAPA).

Congratuations Kayla

Mary Lore

Mary Shankel Lore

March 28, 1921 – August 18, 2019

Mary Lore, a CAPA Lifetime member who was passionate about photography and saw many changes, including the introduction of colour film, passed away in August at the age of 98. Born in Brooks, Alta., in 1921, Lore first took photographs with her mother’s eight-exposure film box camera.

In her autobiography, written in 2004 at the request of the Foothills Camera Club in Calgary, Lore said it took her nine years to save $99 to buy a Konica 35mm camera in 1949, from there advancing to a second-hand Exacta and then to a new Leica SLR. Lore joined the Calgary Colour Photo Club in 1949 and filled several executive positions, including president from 1984 to 1989. She was a zone representative for the National Association of Photographic Art (NAPA) before becoming president in 1979-1980. She was awarded an honorary CAPA life membership during the 1980s. Lore said she was fortunate to be able to travel to many countries, but still found the foothills and mountains “on our backdoor step” to be her favourite.

Mary grew up on a ranch at Latham, Alberta where her love of wildflowers, birds and animals began and continued as a lifelong passion. For many years she hiked, snowshoed, and rode horses. Mary’s first career was as a clerk and secretary where she showed her talents and rose to be an executive secretary in the exploration department of Shell Oil. Mary became a business education teacher for 20 years, starting at James Fowler High, then John Diefenbaker High and ending her career as head of the business education department at Crescent Heights High School. She was a recipient of the Charles deTro award for contributions to teaching by a classroom teacher. Mary was involved with many organizations, including Desk and Derrick, Skyline Hikers and Trail Riders, the Calgary Field Naturalists, and the Foothills Camera Club. She enjoyed the arts and for many years attended ballet and opera productions. Mary traveled extensively, taking photographs as she went. She was an award winning photographer and her slide shows were legendary.

She is survived by two sisters-in-law, 17 nephews and nieces and 25 great-nephews and nieces. She was predeceased by four brothers and two sisters-in-law.
