The Trillium Photographic Club was formed in 1992. Trillium’s aim is to promote the enjoyment of photography by providing the venue for photographers to meet and exchange ideas and information. In addition to regular club meetings with speakers, clinics and photographic exhibitions, there are opportunities for outings and social gatherings.

Trillium is a participating member of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA) and the Greater Toronto Council of Camera Clubs (GTCCC).

We welcome new members, new ideas and new challenges. Join us to learn, improve and enjoy photography.

We meet most Tuesdays, September through May, at 7:30 PM at:

East Plains United Church
375 Plains Road East,
Burlington (Aldershot), Ontario

Guests are welcome, but there is a guest fee on nights that we have special speakers (as set out in our on-line program.)

Speaker - Peter Ferguson  "Postcards from the Park"
16 years of photography of Algonquin Park

Peter lives in Fonthill, with his wife Lynda, both are trying hard to relax, slow down and enjoy their “retirement” years. Peter is currently the Competitions Director and vice President of the Welland Camera Club and has been an active member there for the past 9 years. He has recently received the CAPA Maple Leaf award for photographic merit and contributions at the both the club level and beyond.

Peter believes that a successful image is one that is technically sound as well as artistically pleasing. Merging the left-brain desire for technical perfection with the right-brain creative urge is an ongoing process for all photographers - it’s how we grow.

Peter will will highlight many of his most engaging images from Algonquin Park, along with the reasoning behind why some images stand apart from the many. .

Non-members are welcome to attend as Club guests for a fee of $10.00
