We now have 125 members and this page leads to important resources that will greatly improve your experience in the club and caters to all skill levels. There are a variety of ways to participate.
The Annual Club Program will outline what will take place at each club meeting. Please review this schedule often as it may change. If you would like to see something particular included for the program such as a presentation or are interested in a particular speaker, contact Bill Peel, the Program & Education Director and make a suggestion.
The Competitions are open to all Club members. Please refer to the guidelines and Special Topics for each competition. All entries are submitted online. You will need a user name and a password. Contact Randy Nickerson, the Competitions Director, if you haven’t received yours or to reset it. You will be notified of other external competitions and their specific rules as they become available.
The Club will have a number of Social activities that are designed to bring members together in a variety of activities and not necessarily photographic related. Elizabeth Borysewicz, your Social Director will inform you of upcoming events.
The Club also has numerous photographic outings throughout the Southern Ontario region. These are usually day events. Some outings may require fees. Norm Ullock, the Outings Manager will post the outings as they are confirmed. You will have to pre-register for all outings as space may be limited. Details will be posted on the Social/Outings Page.
Working on a special project or have a series of interesting images? I request 12 images on a theme and a small write up on it.
Contact Bharat Mistry to become a Featured Member of the Month and showcase your art on this page.

I have always had a love of motorsports since I can remember. When I was young, the Ferrari Club Owner's Association would have their meeting at the hotel across from my house. My Dad and I would go over and drool at the fancy red Italian sports cars. Since that time, I have always loved motorsports racing of all kinds.
As I got older and developed a love for photography, this was the first area that I wanted to try and work and develop my skills. It is funny to go back and look at the images from the first year or two and see how things have changed ... for the better I hope!
There is a lot of technique in being able to pan, frame, expose and otherwise try to get a proper image of something going over 200km/h at times. I have had people snicker and laugh as I am at the track and practice following a car that hasn't shown up yet, but when it arrives at that turn and I am able to follow it with the frame filled and get the flame belching from the exhaust pipes, it is all worth it.
