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. Interested photographers are welcome to join our Monday meetings between 6:00 and 6:30PM to inquire about membership. The club year runs from September through June, 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 pwccny@aol.com for more information. (Note: To register an account on this website you MUST be a dues-paying member.)




Our 2022-23 Year-End Competition, which will be presented on June 5th, will be judged by Jim Cummins, a photojournalist best known for his photographs of legendary rock, rhythm and blues, soul, jazz, country/western and gospel performers of the 1960s through the early 1980s, as well as more than 900 album covers (http://cumminscollection.imagefortress.com/); Phoenix, an award winning fine art, wildlife, conservation and portraiture photographer based in Miami, FL (https://www.photographsbyphoenix.com/); and Natalia Rudychev, a photographer and multidisciplinary artist best known for her work with the Japanese aesthetics of wabi-sabi, appreciating beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" in nature (https://nataliarudychev.com/). Join us to see whose photo will be named ‘Image of the Year.’ 

On Thursday, June 8th, we'll have the third field trip/assignment of the Expanding Visions 29 workshop. The theme is 'Underneath,' where you'll shoot up at things that are down low. We'll meet at Central Park West and 72nd St. (northeast corner) and 6:30PM, then head into Central Park. More details in the latest issue of Photo Notes (link below). And, please note: THIS WORKSHOP IS OPEN TO ALL INTERESTED PHOTOGRAPHERS, NOT JUST PWCC MEMBERS!!  EMAIL US AT PWCCNY@AOL.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION. 

Long-time Park West Camera Club member, Sarah Corbin, passed away a year ago. Her husband, George Corbin, a current member of PWCC, in conjunction with the Hammond Museum in North Salem, NY, has assembled a showing of Sarah’s images. The exhibit opens May 20th, with an opening reception, and runs through July 15th. https://www.hammondmuseum.org/upcoming-exhibitions

We've added hyperlinks to recordings of recent monthly competitions, guest speaker nights and member curtain raisers to our home page (see below). Many of these same recordings, as well as member workshop demonstrations, are also available at the 'Speaker & How to Videos' tab, above right, along with lots of other photography resources available to members. Have fun!

The memorial service for fellow photographer, mentor and dear friend, George Hansen, can be viewed above at 'PWCC Organization Galleries.' George, Georgie, Jorge is gone but never forgotten!
