“Chasing Stories – Photography Insights” Presentation by Javier Frutos, Brand and Creative Director, Photographer and Photo Editor at Canadian Geographic & The Royal Canadian Geographical Society
As hot, humid days of August make way for hopefully cooler days of September, the Kanata Seniors’ Centre Camera Club (KSCCC) is busy getting organized for our 2021/22 season.
With the ongoing restrictions concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be meeting virtually for the foreseeable future. We hope that as soon as it is safe to do so, we will reconvene our in-person meetings.
Our upcoming season promises to be interesting for all our Club members, with presentations by a range of external speakers and Club members, monthly photo challenges, special photographic topics and plenty of opportunities to share our experiences, as well as learn and practice new photographic and photo editing techniques.
Here are some details for our first meeting of the new season:

With our current season winding down, we are busy planning for our new 2021/22 season. This includes identifying interesting and challenging topics for our monthly challenges, as well as searching for speakers who are willing to give presentations to our members at our monthly meetings.
With the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, planning for our new season is proving to be challenging. It is too soon to know if we will have in-person meetings starting this September or whether we will need to continue with virtual meetings.
However, we thought that members would like to have a “sneak peek” at the topics for our monthly challenges for the new season. For those photographers who like to get a jump start on their photography, the following is the list of topics.
