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. 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 May), 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
Chris Murray will judge our October 2023 member competition. Chris is a nature photographer, instructor, and writer based in the Thousand Islands region of upstate New York. Focusing on the many varied landscapes of New York State, he looks to nature’s creative expressions as an inspiration to create art. Chris’s work has appeared in several magazines, including ‘On Landscape,’ ‘Popular Photography,’ Adirondack Life,’ and ‘New York State Conservationist.’ He also leads photography workshops, both independently and through the Adirondack Photography Institute. For more information about Chris and to see his work, visit his website at https://www.chrismurrayphotography.com/.
Check out some of the 'show-and-tell' images (in the home page gallery, above) taken by members over the summer and presented at the September 11th meeting.
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!
