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.

An Evening with Dave Dixon LRPS

Dave Dixon, a member of Alnwick Camera Club, took us on a journey which began at Alston Railway Station. In mainly monochrome, we enjoyed a series of railway images. Northumberland Churches were fascinating, colourful and, occasionally, completely unknown. Dave’s work explores so much: Urban Landscape, Desolate Dwellings and abstract subjects such as Flame. It was entertaining but also challenging. Can we find such interesting shots somewhere out there?

Three of a Kind

Eleven members took three pictures


Again members willingly rose to the challenge of taking their allocated subject and the result was a very enjoyable and informative evening. Our thanks to Bill Norfolk for his preparation and presentation and to Rod Smith for his organisation.
