About WPC: The Whitehorse Photography Club (WPC) is a member of CAPA, Pacific Zone, and has been operating in Whitehorse for more than 35 years with several of our founding members still very much active. We receive Canadian Camera as part of the CAPA membership and contribute to the quarterly Pacific Zone News.

We are a small but growing group that happens to live in a photographer’s paradise. We facilitate and host an annual Fall Weekend Workshop that is led by a nationally known photographer, and we participate in the annual Celebration of Nature and the North Shore Photographic Challenge competitions.

We are active September through May.

Meet the artist: Justin Rutledge

Meet the artist: Justin Rutledge

Acclaimed alt-country artist, Justin Rutledge is renowned for the rich musical texture and eloquent lyrics expressed throughout each of his five albums, including 'Valleyheart' - which just won the singer-songwriter a Juno this March. Following up on this success, Rutledge will be resting his songwriting skills, recording instead his take on some Tragically Hip classics. His sixth record, 'Daredevil', will be released this April, just before his performance alongside Kim Beggs and Oh Susanna as 'Dark Strangers' on Thursday, April 24th at the Yukon Arts Centre. Tickets $27.

How would you describe your music (in five words or less)?

Almost better than buttermilk pancakes.

What is the best/worst thing about your being a musician?

The solitude and the solitude.

What would you do if you were not a musician?

A baker.

Speaking of 'Dark Strangers': What do you appreciate most in your friends?

Loyalty, support, and a solid ear to bend.

What was your most memorable tour experience?

5 days/nights in Dawson City! The raw beauty has continued to sustain me with a sense  of wonder.
