About Us

PHPC is a medium-sized club of around 40-50 members. Our members range in skill from enthusiastic novices to experienced photographers. The club has a few members who are judges.

We have a number of members who run the mentoring program for our newer members to learn the capabilities of their camera(s). We are large enough to support the growth of members but small enough to be a community, where all members can know each other. The club is here to challenge us to get the best from ourselves and our cameras

Competition Monday 30th August – Photo Rally Set-Still Life & some Updates

Hi all

Please see the following updates:

On Monday night we will hold our Competition – Photo Rally Set Subject-Still Life via zoom (same as last competition zoom log in). I’m waiting to hear if the judge will be joining us.

Please note we do not have a presenter for 6th September so we will cancel this meeting.

20th September is Set Subject – Transport.

For those that were not able to attend the last zoom meeting I will let you know that David and I have decided to move back to Newcastle. This will happen 6th October. I will stay on as President until the AGM 15th November and if we return to face-to-face I will travel down for the final competitions of the year.

We are therefore looking for a new President. If you are interested please let me know asap as I would like to start handing over information in the next few months. It is a lovely role with a very supportive committee.

I look for to seeing you on zoom Monday night and seeing what every one has been doing with their still life photography – certainly a challenge!

Till Monday.
