Island Photographers wanted

The Ladysmith Camera Club is putting the focus on photography again this year with the return of the Mid-Island Photo Expo.

Shutterbugs of all ages and skill levels can now submit their images digitally for a shot at prizes and one of 60 spots at the Ladysmith Waterfront Art Gallery

The Ladysmith Camera Club was founded in 2008 to promote the appreciation and sharing of all things photographic in the Ladysmith area and is about 40 members strong, but there’s room for more. The group is trying to get more participation from the high school as well.

“We’re always looking for new people to join,” Sherstone said.

The Ladysmith Camera Club meets once a month on the fourth Tuesday at 7 p.m.
