WELCOME TO THE PARK WEST CAMERA CLUB
The Park West Camera Club is one of New York City’s oldest and most active camera clubs. Founded in 1937, PWCC is open to all who love photography, from beginners to experienced photographers. We offer a variety of programs, including photo competitions and critiques; lectures by professional photographers; member portfolio presentations and workshops; field trips; gallery exhibits; and an award-winning monthly newsletter.
PWCC meets weekly on Monday nights at 6:30PM, currently via Zoom in light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Interested photographers are welcome to join our Monday meetings between 6:00 and 6:30PM to inquire about membership. The club year begins in September but you may join at any time. Dues are $50.00 per year (pro-rated for new members who join after October), while we are meeting via Zoom. Download an application or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. (Note: To register an account on this website you MUST be a dues-paying member.)
