The Trillium Photographic Club was formed in 1992. Trillium’s aim is to promote the enjoyment of photography by providing the venue for photographers to meet and exchange ideas and information. In addition to regular club meetings with speakers, clinics and photographic exhibitions, there are opportunities for outings and social gatherings.

Trillium is a participating member of the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA) and the Greater Toronto Council of Camera Clubs (GTCCC).

We welcome new members, new ideas and new challenges. Join us to learn, improve and enjoy photography.

We meet most Tuesdays, September through May, at 7:30 PM at:

East Plains United Church
375 Plains Road East,
Burlington (Aldershot), Ontario

Guests are welcome, but there is a guest fee on nights that we have special speakers (as set out in our on-line program.)

Speaker: Richard Martin
"Spontaneous and Reactive Photography"

"In situations which are constantly changing, there is often one instant when all the elements come together. Chance or good fortune may play a role in capturing that critical moment, but typically it is a matter of passion, sensitivity, and quick reaction. Developing the required skills for reactive photography involves practicing the craft of photography to the point where it becomes second nature. This presentation will address the most important aspects, including managing equipment, perceptive and well-developed observation, effective picture design, and an appreciation of the vastly important role that instinct and intuition plays.

"My photography is a celebration of the visual world. It originates straight from the heart, honest and direct. Inspired by colour, texture and light, I make photographs to express feelings surrounding my experiences, searching for visual equivalents to those feelings.

"Moving beyond literal representation, I view line and shape in a highly graphic manner, with a fascination for the dramatic effects of light and shadow on form. One of the unique properties of photography that excites me is its spontaneity, its ability to capture a transient moment. A moment of discovery becomes a moment of rediscovery when the subject is viewed through the lens. In this way photography becomes a simultaneous act of intuition, feeling and recording. The quality of light plays an important role in my image making, with its capacity to transform the commonplace into the poetic and render the real as mystical and surreal. My approach to photography is simple. I value the unexpected and remain open to new ideas and exploring new directions. The process of making photographs and afterwards translating the image to print has always been an act of transformation from the literal to the imagined, and from the seen to the felt."

-Richard Martin -

A long-time contributor to Photo Life magazine, Richard pursues photography as a medium of visual expression. He is best known for his unique vision with a personal style characterized by a strong sense of composition, colour and the use of light. His work combines an architectural love of geometry, pattern and texture with a painter's sensitivity to colour, light and composition. Well known for sharing his enthusiasm, creative vision and passion for the medium, Richard continues to inspire participants with his annual photography and visual design workshops in his native Kingston, Ontario since 1990. He also conducts workshops, tours, and seminars around the world, including Cuba, Mexico, Sicily, Venice, Tuscany, Provence, Ireland, and Morocco.

Non-members are welcome to attend as Club guests for a fee of $10.00
