West Kootenay Camera Club, est.1990
To promote a keen interest in the photographic arts
The West Kootenay Camera Club (WKCC) which was established in 1990, is located in Castlegar and the membership is from the surrounding communities of Rossland, Trail and Nelson. The Club has a diverse membership of photographers of all skill levels.
Meetings are held every two weeks and always include an education component, an in-club monthly theme competition, and occasionally, a slide show presentation or a guest speaker. Visitors are always welcome to meetings. Members also take part in field trips to various locations in the beautiful Kootenays.
The main goals of the WKCC are to enhance each member’s photographic skills and to enlighten the general public to the beauty of the community and surrounding areas with wonderful and unique images.
WKCC is a member of the Canadian Association of Photographic Art (CAPA) which affords many opportunities for members to submit images to a wider audience for competition.
