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.)
LATEST NEWS AND EVENTS
Our January 24th meeting will feature a member workshop about creating photo books. We'll have someone from the field discuss the possibilities as well as demonstrate some of the programs and techniques, and then some of our fellow Club members will do a show-and-tell of their experiences at digital book publishing. You won’t want to miss this Zoom workshop meeting!
Recordings of our recent guest speaker nights and member workshop demonstrations are now available at the ''How-To' Videos, Notes and Speaker Video' tab, above right. While you're there, check out all the other photography resources available to members.
You can view the memorial service for our dear friend, George Hansen, above at 'PWCC Organization Galleries.' George, Georgie, Jorge is gone but never forgotten!
