Winnipeg South Photo Club

Winnipeg South Photo Club, Inc. (WSPC) was an idea born from a casual conversation in a local camera store, “Camera Craft”, in 1981. That conversation led to action with Jim Roy and Evelyn Keele agreeing to take lead roles in forming a club. The Winnipeg South Photo Club (WSPC) was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1983 to provide an opportunity for persons interested in photography to meet on a regular basis. Those first years established a winning presentation format with club members treated to a variety of professional, highly respected photographers who were guest speakers willing to give freely of their time.  In November 1988, Bill Bremner and Don Berthman were recognized with Lifetime Honorary Membership for their on-going support for WSPC. The main principle established from the very first meeting can best be summarized as “We are photography enthusiasts in a photography club, not a camera club.” Our emphasis and interest is in improving and share our photography. In support of that principle, executives, both past and present, create “an educational and recreational program that benefits the members” in a friendly, non-competitive environment. Although WSPC has never had internal competitions, club members do participate in competitions sponsored by other clubs and organizations.

One of the key features of WSPC since its inception, is the hosting of image reviews in members’ homes. This is an opportunity for members to receive constructive feedback on images, discover new ideas for photography and socialize with other members.  WSPC has remained true to its roots as a small and friendly club.  At the same time, it has grown into a diverse and respected club with photographers from novice to professional levels – all sharing their passion for photography.
