Field trips are a great way for you to get out taking pictures.  We all lead busy lives and sometimes put off our hobbies until we ’have time’.  Our field trips give you an opportunity to work photography into your schedule.  All the arrangements are made for you so you just need to register and show up.  We choose locations and situations we think will be of interest to most members and try to provide a wide range of subjects.   There are always several advanced members attending the trips who are very helpful if you need advice or have questions.  Join us for a fun and easy going experience photographing interesting and often unique subjects.

Field trips are open to club members only, and require registration.  The registration form appears on the ‘details’ page some time before the event, and when it does, a notice also appears on the Current News page.

The number of allowed participants varies with each field trip and is noted on the registration form.  You are advised to register early to avoid disappointment.  When you register you will be required to agree to and accept the following liability waiver:

I further understand and accept that this liability waiver applies to any and all guests or participants which may be brought by me to this club event or activity and I hereby undertake and agree to make any guest or participant brought by me aware of this liability waiver and will ensure their acceptance of these terms before they participate.

Mid-Week Field Trips

For those would like to meet up with fellow club members during the week, a few midweek outings have been planned. We’re keeping them simple and fairly close to Richmond Hill to cut done in traveling time. Registration will not be necessary.  However, if you’re planning on attending please send an email to  so we’ll know who to expect. Also the general waiver must be signed in order to attend.

Note: More midweek outings can always be added depending on the interest level.
