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.)

The GTCCC, of which the Trillium Club is a member, has a fall retreat scheduled at the Geneva Park Conference Centre in Orillia for the weekend of September 30 - October 2, 2016.

There is a Friday afternoon and evening program for those staying the weekend, a full-day program on Saturday, and a half-day on Sunday.

Workshop - Critique Night

Experienced club members will offer constructive commentary on members' images.

This is to be a learning experience, so submit images where you wants answers and not images that might be your best work.

Submit up to a maximum of 5 images of any subject or technique to Jim Maguire no later than Saturday, Oct. 3 at midnight. Jim's email address will be included in an email to all members prior to the due date. You will receive a confirmation of receipt of the images. The images are to be sized as for clinics and should be numbered followed by your name. I.e., 01 Jane Doe; 02 Jane Doe etc.

The images can be from a prior clinic or intended for a future clinic. We will critique as many as possible for each participant as time allows it.
