Welcome to the Comox Valley Photographic Society

Whether you are just learning about photography, are an enthusiastic amateur or an accomplished professional, there may be something that we can offer you at your skill level.

You too can contribute to the advancement of photographic art. Members of the Society love to share their passion and knowledge with other like-minded photographers all the while making new friends and enjoying social events.

• Education nights give us the opportunity to learn new techniques;
• Image Expressions nights give us occasion to see other members photos with guest judges giving evaluations and tips for improvement; and
• Field Trips take us to a variety of locations, giving members a way to practice their favorite pastime together.

If you want to develop your photography, we encourage you to join us in this adventure to share your knowledge with others and in turn learn along with them.

Our History

Originally known as the Comox Valley Camera Club, CVPS was started in 1964 by but a handful of enthusiasts who met in the back room of Studio One on Fifth Street in Courtenay. Over the years the club met in different schools and churches as an increasing membership demanded ever bigger spaces.
On our 50th Anniversary, in 2014, the club was registered as a non-profit society and given a new name – the Comox Valley Photographic Society – in part to emphasize that its purpose is about more than just cameras. A new logo was adopted at that time.
