Welcome to the Central Okanagan Photographic Society (COPS) Website

2023-2024 Season

This year our SHARE~LEARN~GROW vision will continue to guide our program selections.

We look forward to an exciting line up of programs and events that will help us do just that in the coming year.

About us

We are a group of people of all ages and photographic abilities located in Kelowna, British Columbia, who enjoy learning about and sharing our interest in photography. We meet four times a month from September through May.

Meetings feature guest speakers, photographic education and image evaluations. Our emphasis is on learning and having fun with photography. Visitors are welcome to attend up to 3 regular meetings before joining the club. Some restrictions may apply for special event meetings. If you would like to attend a meeting as a guest, please phone John, our Membership Coordinator at 250-979-1439.

We meet almost every Tuesday at 7 PM from September to May.  Meeting locations may vary. For more details on our meetings, including the meeting location, check out our calendar. (On mobile, the calendar is best viewed in landscape mode).

For this season, we will continue following public health rules. We plan to have in-person meetings this year and will supplement by broadcasting meetings via Zoom. However, if the public health rules change we may need to use the Zoom platform exclusively for some meetings. We may also have Zoom only meetings for speakers connecting to us remotely. Zoom meeting credentials will be emailed to members and registered guests.
