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.

Ponteland Wheelbarrow Race 1st January 2018

A rainbow heralded the 2018 Ponteland Wheelbarrow Race, based at The Blackbird. A good crowd gathered to see the three races: Youngsters, Ladies and Open. Mayor Alan Varley attended with his wife and later he presented the prizes. A tremendous amount of effort goes into an event like this. Thanks to all groups who participated. Thank you for supporting St. Oswald’s Hospice and Tynedale Hospice at Home.

Look closely at the photograph of the Youngsters’ Race; Mike Sadler, one of our staunchest members, was acting as a Marshal and, together with all the excited crowd, saw the winners come in triumphantly!

Youngsters try their utmost!
