YOUR FOCUS

Saturday, September 20th, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

PDPC members,you are invited to join our first Your Focus outing of this season as we photograph tug boats.

Pre-registration required: tnodwell@telus.net

  • Limited to 12 photographers max.
  • Free for PDPC members. Open to all members from beginner to advanced.
  • Our Your Focus outing will proceed rain or shine.
  • Participants are asked to provide a few images from the outing for a club slide show and in appreciation to Harken Towing.

The Pacific Digital Photography Club and/or volunteers are not responsible for any loss, injury, inconvenience or disappointing images.

Harken Towing has been providing river tug boat services for more than 50 years. They have kindly agreed that we can do photography on their site. There are 3 areas of interest. They have created a small park with their original two tugboats; this area is easily accessible and would be good for those who like to photograph patterns, etc. The second area is the dock which we can access and do creative images of the boats. The third area is the working yard, which we can access provided that there is not too much activity on that Saturday.

This is a working industry-based operation with docks and ramps. Participants do so entirely at their own risk. NON-SLIP foot ware is required.

There is a possibility that we could do an optional charter of one of their water taxis and do photography along the river at the end of our outing. This will depend on there being enough photographers interested and if an operator is available on that Saturday. If you are interested in doing this, the cost would be about $50 per person.

Some of you may want to go for dinner with fellow club members after the photography wraps up; this is optional
