The Burnaby Photographic Society was founded in 1970 by a group of amateur photography enthusiasts to help broaden their knowledge and encourage photography as an Art form, the Society continues this philosophy today.
Our goals have not changed over the years and we have continued to adapt to new ideas and innovations. The majority of our members have all become avid digital converts and a few have managed to combine both digital and film photography in their repertoire.
Our membership has been very consistent over the years and numbers about 70 avid photographers. Our weekly meetings usually attract about 30 - 40 members each Monday night to view, discuss, teach and learn about the various aspects of photography. There is also much interest among our members in utilizing photo editing software for adjusting and enhancing their photographs. Some of our sessions with guest speakers have covered such topics as architectural, travel, time lapse, the use of black light in photography as well as other diverse topics all associated with photography.
