Celebrating Local Photographers on the Sunshine Coast
For the 5th consecutive year, the Sunshine Coast Shutterbugz Camera Club will participate in the “Celebrating Local Photographers” event held at the Sunnycrest Mall in Upper Gibsons, BC in early June. Organised by the Photographic Department of the local London Drugs store on the lower Sunshine Coast, this event has grown in participation over the last few years. Typically, the Sunshine Coast Shutterbugz club would show between forty-five and fifty photos of different sizes, all mounted on foamcore board courtesy of London Drugs.
Open to public viewing over a four-day weekend, this display of local photographic work will occupy a section of un-leased retail space that is secured overnight. A roster of club members is established so that someone is always available to answer questions about any of the photos or about the club itself. This is also a win-win opportunity for London Drugs as they use the floor space to display patio furniture for sale, or for visitors to sit on while they view the display. Any of the local photographers may also offer their photos for sale to the public.
