Through Our Lens
Estevan Photography Club
November 24th, 2023 – Jan 26th, 2024
We’re excited to bring to you the work of a local group of very talented photographers that have been meeting at the Estevan Art Gallery and Museum for about ten years. The Estevan Photo Club started as a small group of people who had one common goal and purpose: to go deeper into the art of photography, to become more knowledgeable about their cameras and gear and better handle all those mysterious and sometimes frightening camera settings!
Fast forward ten years and that once small group of amateur shutterbugs has not only grown in numbers to twenty-five regular members, but their names are also becoming more recognized in Estevan and surrounding area for their ever presence in local events such as rodeos, pow wows, fairs, exhibitions, newspapers, and competitions. Some members of the Estevan Photo Club have won awards and competitions locally and provincially and have had their photos and names published in the local media.
Photography has brought us together and we have grown not just in numbers, but we’ve grown in knowledge, number of places visited through our many photo outings and road trips that we’ve taken together. Through these photo outings and trips, we have learned so much more and, the more we explore, the more we realize we all have one thing in common: a passion for photographing Saskatchewan and its landscape, its wildlife and every breathtaking sunset! Let’s not forget the Crocus, the Western Red Lily, the cactus and the abundance of wildflowers that blanket this vast land in the spring and summer months! Did you know you can photograph the Aurora Borealis right here, in southeast Saskatchewan? You should see the pictures we’ve taken!
So, please, take a deep breath and come enjoy the beauty of Saskatchewan, Through Our Lens!
