Message from the President

We’re delighted that you have chosen to visit our new website. Whether you are a visitor or a CAPA member, we trust that you find the information on this website useful and informative.

CAPA represents thousands of individual members and members of photography clubs from across Canada, the USA, as well as several foreign countries. As an organization, we are dedicated to promoting good photography as an art form, and to providing useful information for photographers, through individual interactions with photographers and photography clubs, running competitions, evaluating images, and producing the quarterly Canadian Camera magazine. We provide education and instruction by way of workshops, seminars, the CAPA Judging Course and the biennial Canadian Camera Conference.

Regardless of what camera system you use, whether it’s a DSLR, one of the latest mirrorless systems, or even a cell phone, we wish you the best of success in your photographic interests, and we’d love to see your images in one of the many competitions.

If you are not a member, we’d love to have you join us. Please note the benefits of membership and the registration form elsewhere on this site.

Please feel free to explore all the details of this website. Should you have any questions, concerns or suggestions, please contact us at

Warmest Regards,
Rod Trider, FCAPA
