Regina Photo Club:

Celebrating 40 Years

September 29, 2018 - January 6, 2019

The Regina Photo Club is pleased to present 40 prints as a tribute to its milestone year. The images are a selection from the current membership, include three from the only founding member still active in the club today, former president, Bill Inglis.

In 1977, a photo club was the dream of a few individuals in Regina with a common interest in sharing their photographic experiences and skills. The group met at Molson House, a local Regina brewery at the time. In December, 1977 an interim executive steering committee was formed with Bill Inglis as the President. The other members were Jan Cousins, Linda Leahy, Mike Manett, Jerry Bien and Jim Heshka.

The club mandate:

Improve the members’ photographic skills by providing a forum to share ideas and experiences in photography.

To that end they:

Promote the art of photography and “become better acquainted with the art of photography.”
