Volunteers Needed

The Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club is run completely by volunteers and needs your help.

We are looking for a couple more members to sit on the executive committee, as well as, members that can assist with other club activities.  Many different types of skills and abilities are required, however, for some activities (e.g. backup the webmaster) computer skills are required.  It is not necessary that you be an expert in photography and training can be provided.   

Without volunteers the Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club would not exist.  Please consider volunteering and, depending on the activity, the time commitment can be less than a few hours a month.

If you are interested, or want additional information, please send an email to contact@ksccc.ca, or speak to one of the executive members at the next camera club meeting on February 1st.

Thank you

ARTIST BIO
My past has taken me in many different directions. From Real Estate and Interior Design, to desktop publishing, writing and editing, home building, project management, and event organizing to name a few. I have always wanted to be a photographer. One boring rainy day in 2011, I ventured out and purchased my first DSLR and just started pushing the shutter button.

M-Y-N-D in Icelandic means photo or image. ‘MYND’S I’ is the name of my photography site. I like that a photograph is made, not taken. It is made in your own mind and with your own eye, and it is slow and considered in its making. I believe that anyone can take a photo, but it takes a discerning eye, a sense of what is around you and a comprehension of how everything is reacting to the surrounding light sources to make a picture. Without light, photography would not exist. In fact light is the true subject of every photograph. Continue reading “Ginny Fobert”
