What is Photo Fredericton?

Photo Fredericton is a group of avid amateur photographers from Fredericton and surrounding communities. The focus of Photo Fredericton's activities is to provide its membership with an opportunity to listen and learn from fellow photographic enthusiasts and to share their own knowledge and ideas about photography.

Photo Fredericton Inc. is a non-profit photography club, whose goals are:

  1. To provide for its members a forum for discussion, workshops and field trips.
  2. To provide opportunities for its members to increase their proficiency in photographic techniques and the creative use of photography.
  3. To increase the community's awareness of photography as an art form through public exhibits and/or presentations.

The general public is encouraged to attend any of our meetings.

Photo Fredericton meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from September to May. Meeting times are 7:00pm to 7:30 socializing, 7:30 programme start.

Meetings for the 2011-2012 season will be in Room 202, Brian Mulroney Hall, Saint Thomas University. Parking is available at the corner of Montgomery and Windsor Streets. Mulroney Hall is immediately below the parking lot. A map is available in pdf.

The programme on the second Tuesday is devoted to learning and/or entertainment while the fourth Tuesday offers club members the opportunity to share their work by participating in "slide" competitions. Digital images, and occasionally 35mm slides, are projected for critique and judging. A variety of themes for the competitions will encourage you to look at things in a different light.

If you decide to join our club, membership fees are $30 regular member, $40 family. Membership for full-time students is $10. As part of your membership to Photo Fredericton you will receive full access to this website including a personal image gallery, articles and discussions by members, and much more. Photographers of all abilities from beginners to advanced amateurs are welcomed.

You can download a copy of the membership application and mail it in if you wish.

Photo Fredericton encourages group participation through planned photographic field trips throughout the year. Whether it is photographing hot air balloons in Sussex, walking the beaches and shores of the Bay of Fundy, photographing fishing villages and boats, or hiking up to Bald Peak to capture the scenic views of western New Brunswick, these one day and overnight field trips offer the avid photographer a chance to practice their skills in an atmosphere of comradeship and relaxation.

Most club members are now using digital cameras. A few still use film, either colour or black & white negative film. Programmes are periodically arranged for those who prefer the print medium, colour or black & white. Regardless of the media one shoots, each year there are opportunities to reproduce your work in medium to large format prints for exhibition purposes. The club has an annual print exhibition at The Playhouse to showcase our work.

Photo Fredericton strengthens its bond with the photographic community and general public by sponsoring special seminars by such noted photographers as Freeman Patterson and Courtney Milne. In addition, by being a member club of the Canadian Association of Photographic Art, we have been given the opportunity of hosting Camera Canada College, the premier Canadian photographic event for amateur photographers twice.
