One hallmark of the Society is its relaxed, friendly approach to photography. Newcomers are most welcome to call in any Monday evening and join a meeting or two without obligation or cost. We will be very pleased to see you and to try and help with any photographic problem you want to raise.
On this website you will find an introduction to the club and our committee, a programme of the season’s meetings and galleries of members photographs. There are details of where we meet every Monday in Ponteland, Northumberland, (click here for a map), contact information and a list of our helpful workshops.
Ponteland Photographic Society is a member of the Northern Counties Photographic Federation (NCPF) in the North Tyne Area. Through the NCPF we are affiliated to the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (PAGB). These umbrella groups help to organise activities and competitions between the clubs and internationally with the main aim being “The Advancement of Photography”.
Please take a look around our website to discover more about the society. If you require further information please contact one of the committee members shown on our About the Club page.

This year our main focus was capturing images from around the park to use with the Merton 750th presentation at the end of the year.
The day saw a good turnout of visitors and the weather looked promising with lots of sunshine as we setup our stand. Unfortunately as the afternoon progressed a couple of heavy downpours made sure our tent was crowded as people sought shelter from the rain!
Our exhibits attracted a large number of viewings and were commented on favourably – even from visiting professional photographers! Just for the record no one managed to guess how Helen had created her “Smile, (but watch your fingers)” picture. Click here if you’ve not seen it before.
