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 at the Soho Photo Gallery, 15 White Street, between West Broadway and 6th Avenue (in Tribeca). Interested photographers are welcome to visit 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 $150.00 per year (pro-rated for new members who join after October). Download an application or email us at pwccny@aol.com for more information. To register an account on this website you MUST be a dues-paying member. (In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, PWCC will be meeting via Zoom until further notice. Stay safe, everyone, and keep your hands off your face and on your camera!)



PWCC will be off for the summer, and will resume weekly meetings in September. In the meantime, check out our summer events schedule (see Upcoming Meetings or the summer edition of our Photo Notes newsletter (both below), for more details). Have a great summer and see you in September!

We're showcasing pictures from our first big, post-pandemic member outing, to Little Island Park in lower Manhattan in June 2021, on our home page gallery. Although it was one of the hottest days of the summer (so far), it was so good to get back together again! (The images are by members Ann Broder, Christine Doyle, Florence Forman, Jeffrey Langford, Larry Rubin, Laura Toldedo, Marlene Schonbrun, and Virginia Lawrence.)  

If you missed it, check out the gallery of our 2021 Year-End Competition winners, as well as a recording of the Final Competition judging. Also, you can find lots of postings to help you grow your photographic skills under the Club Workshop Hand Outs tab, above. Have fun! 

Last, the memorial presentation for our late friend and long-time PWCC member George Hansen, first shown on November 23, 2020, is available for viewing under on the Club Members Galleries tab (also above). 'George, Georgie, Jorge' -- forever missed but never forgotten!
