At the BCPVA our members regularly hire fellow members as subcontractors on multi-camera shoots and when they need a replacement or are double booked.

Learn how you can earn upwards of tens of thousands of dollars as a video subcontractor. Topics will include: what to bring, how to dress, what back-up equipment you should always have, how much to charge, when to show-up, and basically how to make yourself so valuable you will get hired again and again.

That’s Not All!


BCPVA monthly meetings are a forum for members and guests to learn, share, and network with video industry professionals. Typical meetings can include presentations by experts in technology, shooting, editing, storytelling & imagery, and business management. New Professional members often show examples of their video productions followed by Q&A and open topic discussions. Frequently our Vendor Members bring the latest technology like cameras, lights, and gear to our meetings so you can try them out.

The point of BCPVA meetings is to help our members be the best videographers they can be!


Visitors welcome.
