After 20 years the Canadian Camera Conference, CCC2019, returns to Calgary. Alberta. Held every 2 years, CCC is the national conference of CAPA, the Canadian Association for Photographic Art. Once again Foothills Camera Club has stepped up to host the conference. FCC has been in the Calgary photographic community since 1953 and is looking forward to showcasing Calgary and Alberta for our attendees.

Home of the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, the Calgary Stampede, Calgary is a vibrant modern city with small town hospitality. We have something for everyone – river surfing and kayaking on the beautiful Bow River, the National Music Centre, which is both a Canadian Music treasure and an architectural masterpiece, the Flames and Stampeders for sports fans and restaurants and craft breweries for foodies. And of course, there’s that group of mountains just an hour or so west of the city.

CCC2019 boasts 14 talented and engaging image makers who are already preparing their presentations on portraiture, landscape and wildlife photography, astrophotography and much more. The conference is being held on the beautiful SAIT campus, with accommodations, presentations and banquet all in one place. Located just north of downtown Calgary and on the LRT transit line, getting around the city is a breeze. In fact, bring your family and make a vacation of it.

Held on the heels of the Calgary Stampede, there are pre and post-conference photo tours as well as workshops during the conference. Enjoy extended trips through the unparalleled beauty of the Rockies, the otherworldly Badlands to the east and the cowboy rich history of Alberta and Waterton Lakes to the south. You can also enjoy city walks and a photo excursion to the world-renowned Calgary Zoo. The sky is the limit.

Mark your calendar. Grab your gear. Come to Calgary in 2019.

Early Bird Discount of $50 until January 31, 2019

A further discount of $50 for CAPA  individual members and  FCC members
