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.

Opening Night 2018/19

Opening night for the 2018/19 season at Merton Hall PontelandThis evening our Chairman, Rod Smith, welcomed members back from the summer break. It has been an eventful summer with several trips which were well attended but unfortunately the rain forced the cancellation of the Cragside Hall visit for the second time in a row!
Veronica ran through the programme for the new season which is available on our website’s Calendar page, click here. We were then treated to a combination of pictures from the summer outings along with a photo journal of Veronica’s bear hut expedition in the wilds of Alaska – not for the faint hearted!
Next week is the first of the competition night’s, the Knockout Competition.
