Photographers of Qualicum Beach

Area photographers capture a “Day In The Life” of Qualicum Beach A DAY IN THE LIFE OF QUALICUM BEACH

Over twenty local photographers set their camera lenses to capture a day in the community of Qualicum Beach. This event is based on the coffee table books about Canada, Australia, Hawaii, Japan, etc. that offer multiple photographic impressions recorded on a single day. TOSH asked a wide range of photographer, from wellknown artists to hobbyists - to submit their top photos of Qualicum Beach. This was not the first time for this event as two years ago TOSH chose the Summer Solstice, June 21, 2011 for the day on which the photographs would be taken. As the first day of summer it was a significant day, and, yet, as another Tuesday in Qualicum Beach it was not a particularly significant day. The photographers enjoyed the challenge and the visitors to the exhibition enjoyed the creative photography depicting our picturesque town.

The photographers all wanted to do it again and as 2012 was a year of special celebration for the Qualicum Beach community, it was decided to feature the town at play. The date of July 28, 2012 was chosen because it would be one the busiest days in Qualicum Beach with town enjoying the St. Mark’s Fair, The Old School House Arts Centre celebration for the school house building’s 100th Birthday and the Grand Prix d’Art painting race. The town woke up early to set up the events and partied late into the evening on the green behind TOSH. The event was commemorated with an exhibition of photographs taken on that exciting day. The photographs were exhibited and for sale at The Old School House Arts Centre earlier this year and if you see one you in this photo essay you would like to purchase please contact the art centre.
