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.

Helen Bradley gave a very entertaining presentation in which she showed that photography can be based both out and about, or at home, using very familiar objects. Here is a selection of her images; they turn ordinary objects into artistic graphics.
Veronica Congleton took “Creative Photography” as her theme. As we watched, she cleverly and artistically turned a mountain snow scene into a much more colourful and intriguing image by adding colour, a robin and a sunset. The subtle changes wrought became increasingly impressive, as the final picture shows.
