Why would you want to become a member of "The Lounge"?

Where else can you meet people who enjoy creating photographs just like you, experienced and amateur photographers sharing their shooting methods, discussing possible travel locations, talk apertures, f-stops and Photoshop, the opportunity to look at and try the latest photographic gear and... get discounted pricing on photographic workshops and gear ... plus PRO's giving you their inside tips - and all in one place?

People often ask us if we are a "photo club"... our answer is, "No, a photo club is probably run by amateur photographers that are enthusiastic about photography just like you. 'The Lounge' is owned by a team of photographers that has had the pleasure of mentoring under some of the worlds most successful photographers.

As a result of that real world experience we have taken that learning and have now passed it on to our instructors. These instructors can all be found on our ABOUT US page. All our instructors can now take pride at being better teachers having learned the teaching skills that are imperative to making our instruction a successful learning environment. We believe we offer more insightful presentations and offer more hands on opportunities with equipment that you want to see."

As a member you will have access to the latest photography gear through our sponsorships and relationships. This gear is brought to our meetings for you to look at and see first hand on how it operates in the real world... from professional studio lighting set ups, to the latest super telephoto lens, clothing for all weather and new products that hit the shelves.

The Northof49 Lounge also has far reaching relationships with professional photographers from Canada, America and Europe. When possible, we bring you these photographers that work with Northof49Photography when they visit Ontario. As a benefit of membership we offer our members the opportunity to talk one-on-one with these world class photographers without an extra fee as you would have to pay elsewhere.

We will also introduce you to the latest photographic news and information as it is announced... no need to scour the web anymore, we sent it right to your inbox as we get the press releases. We cover topics from photography gear, composition, editing tips, photographic destinations, printing and the latest news from the industry.

Member's also receive discounts on products. A number of our partners and sponsors have authorized us to extend to you affiliate discounts on their various products. Your membership investment could easily be erased with the deep discounts you will receive on outdoor wear, software and photographic gear through "The Lounge".
