Pacific Zone

dennisHello. My name is Dennis and I’m the Director of the Pacific Zone (BC & Yukon) for CAPA.

I am forever thankful to have photography in my life because it contributes to my sense of purpose, provides a means for my creative expression and connects me with a larger community (and that includes you). I photograph for the joy of it as well as for clients who pay me. I also teach photography throughout the year because the energy and enthusiasm that comes from photographers who are growing is so infectious.
I’ve been a member of CAPA for about ten years and a volunteer for the past five, first as a District Representative and more recently as Director.

My goal is to help CAPA be an organization that you can be proud of and want to belong to.

capa-shooting-the-giant-water-bomberThe Pacific Zone has 13 regions and each one has one or more District Reps who visit the clubs regularly and offer support. We are always looking for new DRs and would love to hear from you if interested.
In our efforts to keep you well informed and up to date, the Pacific Zone has its own website. The website includes the Pacific Zone News, our quarterly newsletter and a list of all our photography clubs and District Reps. Please pay us a visit and come back often.

If you have any questions about CAPA or photography, get in touch with me via email. I’m always glad to hear from you.
