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.

Last night saw our second attempt at showing the results from the Set Subject Competition – Macro, and it was well worth waiting for! Fortunately our judge, Peter Maguire LRPS CPAGB from Gosforth Camera Club, was able to return for which we were very thankful.
The picture above shows Phil Robson, centre, with his winning image of a bee just taking off from the flowerhead. Phil also took 2nd place with a striking chameleon portrait and Tony McCann, left above left, was 3rd with Milkdrops. Peter, above right, has a great knowledge of Fauna and Flora which enabled him to enlighten us on the complexities of some of the macro shots which had been taken.
Some really great pictures from members and insightful comments from Peter made this a great evening with over 50 entries in the competition. More details on our Competitions page
