Administrative history

The Images Alberta Camera Club (IACC) began on February 6, 1975 when 44 people signed up for the IAAC in a guest book. In their first constitution the IACC stated their goal was to provide services and give back to the community.

Throughout the years the IACC took part in various community activities and outreach events such as seminars, an exhibit at Muttart, and partnered with charitable organizations. They also produced slideshows and publications using their photographs for notable Edmonton events such as the Pope’s visit in 1984, Y2K, festivals, and sports events. IACC publications and slide shows include, A Day in the Life of Edmonton, Edmonton Focus 2000: Images Alberta Camera Club Millennium Project, and their newsletter Imagery.

The IACC also organized outings for members to photograph various locations and events in Edmonton including the Legislature building, an Edmonton Oilers practice, Fort Edmonton Park, Citadel, Muttart Conservatory, Edmonton Radial Railway, and John Janzen Nature Center.

To align with their goal of “giving back” the IACC used their photography to raise awareness and funds for important causes. Some examples include the “Images of Hope” project for the Hope Foundation, an awareness campaign for the Northern Alberta Brain Injury Society, “Homeless Connect” (taking Christmas portraits for those who couldn’t afford them), Boys and Girls Club workshop, and REDress project.

The IACC is an active photography club with 170 members hosting workshops, outings, and exhibits to align with their three pillars to learn, support the community, and have fun.
