Photographers focus in on Bridge Lake show

Bridge Lake Photo Group is hosting its Fifth Annual Photo Exhibition



Bridge Lake Photo Group is hosting its Fifth Annual Photo Exhibition with photo displays, slide shows and video viewing in the Bridge Lake Elementary School gymnasium on April 7.

The show will feature some of the best work of 18 talented club members who live in the South Cariboo.

Event co-ordinator Brenda Tillyer says photos of varying sizes will be nicely displayed throughout half of the gym, and if contributors stay true to form, she expects there will be a heavy focus on animals, birds and nature in general.

The show runs on a set schedule, with photo viewing from 1 to 2 p.m. on one side of the gym and a slide and video show from 2 to 3 p.m. on the other side.

It’s a format that has worked well in the past, as it gives videographers in the group an opportunity to show their craft and also lets photographers show many more photos than space in the static display area allows.

Each photographer will give a narrative of their presentation and Tillyer says it should be very interesting.

Subjects to be covered in the slide show include Jasper, Alberta, Holland, dogs and hummingbirds. A video will put the focus on bugs and blossoms.

The main part of the show is scheduled to wrap up at 3 p.m., when contributing photographers will put complimentary snacks and refreshments out on tables for guests to enjoy.

People will have an opportunity to view photos and meet with the photographers until 4 p.m.

“It’s a great community event. People come from Kamloops, Clearwater, 100 Mile House and all around, and it’s for all ages. We have a great group of people and talented photographers.”

There is no admission charge for the event, and everyone is welcome to attend. Past shows have drawn large crowds of interested viewers.

Bridge Lake Elementary School is located just east of Bridge Lake General Store.
