Grand River Imaging and Photographic Society (GRIPS) is a camera club serving the Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, Guelph and surrounding areas. We welcome photographers of all skill levels, whether photography is your hobby, passion, or profession.

Learn new techniques and get inspirations from accomplished photographers on program nights twice a month. Get hands-on with our monthly workshops. Socialize with fellow members and learn from each other in monthly photography outings. Get constructive feedback on your images in small-group critique sessions, and internal and external competitions throughout the year. We are committed to helping our members along their photographic journey.

Some of the things GRIPS does


We hold meetings twice per month, from September to June, at the Kitchener East Presbyterian Church. During our meetings, we welcome a wide range of professional and amateur speakers to share their knowledge and inspire our members.


We hold monthly workshops where we bring in presenters to off hands on instructions on a wide variety of topics.


GRIPS members are invited to join us for a monthly outing where we will visit different locations to photograph different subject matter.


GRIPS holds 3 rounds of in-club competitions, we also participate in Grand Valley Image Battle, EggBert, and a number of CAPA competitions throughout the year.
