From a very young age, Arni has had great admiration and respect for the great outdoors.   Since his retirement a few years ago, he has been able to spend the time to improve his photographic skills in the field and in the digital darkroom.  As an award winning wildlife photographer, naturalist and conservationist, he is proud to have had his images published in conservation-themed, international journals including the prestigious Birdlife Australia, Wild Seed Project in Maine, National Audubon Society and Canadian Geographic.


His goal is to tell Nature's story by capturing unique one-of-a-kind images that will resonate with the viewer, stir the soul, invoke an emotion or perhaps stimulate a memory.  The final compositions capture a fleeting moment, one that portrays the beauty, simplicity and fragility of nature.”

Nine Locations -Three Photographers - One India,

Bernie Cook, Juan Gil Niehorster and Gary van Eijk take you on a journey through Northern India as it is seen through, not one, but Three lenses.

As we take you on our adventure through the Himalayas and the Kashmir region of Northern India, you will see the people and places of India’s northern most Nubra valley, located near the Pakistan-India border, then to Pangong Lake on the border of China, to the Monasteries of Ladakh and Leh, into the green valleys of Manali, the Buddhist surroundings of Dharmshala, a journey within the holiest of Sikh places, the Golden Temple of Amritsar - the abode of God and finally on a spice quest into markets of Old Delhi.

Join us and learn as we review the best way to travel into remote India through our experiences, our equipment and our individual photography styles and through every unexpected turn that remote India travel took us….after all “nothing can prepare you for India" - but we will try!

Join the OCC as we welcome Club and Board member Jared Fein and his presentation on photomicroscopy.

There is so much in our immediate world that our eyes cannot see, but which can be revealed  and captured through photomicroscopy.  

By mounting a camera on a microscope, this amazing unseen world can provide countless opportunities to capture stunning images of things we mortals could otherwise not imagine.  

Tonight’s presentation will provide an introduction and overview of this area of photography, in which Jared will share a number of his images ranging from living microorganisms to other interesting everyday objects, then will dazzle you all with some of the best award winning photomicrographs from Nikon’s annual Small World photography competition.

Guests are always welcome - guest fee is $10

We're very pleased to welcome Navy Nhum to present on Portrait Photography

In her words:

About

Not everyone gets my name right on the first attempt but it always makes me smile watching people try. Just in case you were wondering, it’s pronounced Na-vee Newm :)

My goals are simple, capture those real moments, the raw energy and most importantly, the story. To me, these are what make an image mean something and preserve more than just a moment in time. I’m not going to tell you how much I love photography or show a picture of me posing and smiling with a camera because well, no one wants to see another one of those. All I’ll say is that I love travelling, using the right side of my brain, and creativity is what keeps me sane. I also love the Rubik’s cube and really wouldn’t mind spending an afternoon just hanging out by the ocean solving it.

The Oakville Camera Club Welcomes Larry Nicols to talk about people, architecture and travel photography and building a business around that.

In his own words:

Photography for me is all about the aesthetic. I like to create beautiful images. And I find beauty everywhere, especially in the imprint of life on people’s faces and on the landscape. I tell stories through my pictures. I especially love the nuances of black and white imagery. So much narrative is told in the gray areas.

My commercial work is clean and precise, like plain language. My artistic work is personal, whimsical and subtle. It makes space for the viewer to find subtext and meaning in ways that move and engage. That’s the real power of photography.

I have solid classical technique. I started taking pictures on a Kodak Brownie when I was eleven. I got my hands wet pulling light-sensitive paper through a series of chemical baths. The magic of watching an image appear has never failed to amaze me.

My classical background was a perfect launch pad into the digital age of photography. I not only embraced the technology wholeheartedly but led the charge on it. I find digital photography liberating, crazy creative and perfect for someone like me who seeks and appreciates the beauty in life.
