As part of the Lethbridge Photography Club’s ongoing efforts to bring in speakers and new material for our members, Valentina Tkachuk has arranged to have Royce Howland of Vivid Aspect Photography in Calgary to present a lecture and host a hands-on workshop on May 23, 2015. Royce specializes in fine art photography of landscape, architecture and travel subjects. He is an excellent instructor with a wealth of information to share. You can view more about Royce and his photography on his website, The lecture and workshop will be held at the Crossings Branch Library on the west side (click here for a map).

  • The lecture will start at 9:30 am and will run until 11:00 am, and is free for all to attend.
  • The hands-on workshop picks up after the lecture and continues through until 5:30 pm and is limited to 15 spots, available to paid Lethbridge Photography Club members only. There will be a $30.00 registration fee.

  • Location shoots
  • Shooting assignments
  • Guidance on location
  • Review of your photos upon returning to the Library
  • Post-processing suggestions

What you should bring:

  • Your usual camera gear and a tripod
  • Weather-appropriate clothing
  • A laptop to view and your photos

The hands-on workshop will include additional lecture time followed by location shoots around Lethbridge with Royce Howland.  Royce will provide shooting assignments and guidance at the location shoots. After, the group will return to the Crossings Branch Library and review and discuss the assignments and shots taken.

If this interests you, we encourage you to be at the April meeting to put your name down. Remember, spots for the hands-on portion are limited to 15 club members, so be there early to get your name on the sign-up sheet. It will be an excellent all-day session with a professional photographer who we hope will inspire you and provide you with many tips for great photography. More information will follow in May.
