Welcome to the official page for the Toronto Film Shooters. TFS is a photography club that I started back in 2013 in responce for a desire to have more film-centred photography meetups in the Greater Toronto Area. We are a group of dedicated film shooters who meetup several times a year to enjoy good coffee, good cameras, and good beer. Primarly a social group dedicated to networking like-minded photographers. There are four main walks per year with some bonus meetups sprinkled through the year often working on a seasonal basis.
Due to the continued state of emergency in the province of Ontario, big in-person TFS events will not be conducted in the first half of 2021. We are planning in running monthly virtual meetups through the first three months. With limited numbers coordinated events through the spring. And hopefully be able to run full events again come late 2021. Stay tuned, stay safe, and stay shooting.
When does the Toronto Film Shooters Meetup? - We meet four times a year at minimum, for a winter, spring, summer, and fall photo walks.
Is there a membership fee? - No, but you're welcome to buy me a beer at the end of the meet.
Where can I share my photos from the walks? - Sure, we have a facebook group! Where do you usually conduct your photowalks? - Mostly walks are centred around the city of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. But we have gone further afield to Niagara-On-The-Lake and Elora.
Do I need to shoot film to attend? - No, but often there's enough people there with multiple cameras and if you reach out to me, I'll be sure to bring you a body, lens, and a couple rolls!
Are children welcome? - For sure!
The Toronto Film shooters has a rich presense on Social Media that allows group members to interact with eachother. Our biggest community is centred around our Facebook Group, it is a closed group but you're welcome to put in a request to join, be sure to answer the questions or enusre you have a facebook profile with enough clues to say that you shoot film! In addition to Facebook we have a group on Flickr to share you photos if that's your thing.
Below are a selection of images from our meetups from my own personal collection. To see more, you can visit our above group on Flickr, or you can check out all my TFSM albums.
