Welcome to the Park West Camera Club!

The Park West Camera Club is one of the oldest and most active non-profit camera clubs in New York City. Founded in 1937, PWCC is open to beginners as well as experienced photographers, and offers a variety of programs, including photo competitions and critiques; lectures by professional photographers; member portfolio presentations; workshops and demonstrations on technique, gear, software and printing; gallery exhibits; field trips (local, national and international); model shoots; and an award-winning monthly newsletter. Membership is open to all with a love of photography.

PWCC meets weekly on Monday nights at 6:30 PM at the Soho Photo Gallery at 15 White Street, between West Broadway and 6th Avenue (in Tribeca). Interested photographers are welcome to visit our Monday meetings between 6:30 and 7:00PM, and inquire about membership. The club year runs from September through June but you may join at any time. Dues are $150.00 per year and are pro-rated for new members joining after October. Download an application or email us for more information at: pwccny@aol.com. [Note: To register an account on this website you MUST be a dues-paying member.]
