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.

Second Knockout competition of 2018


This is always a popular evening. Over thirty images were submitted for this contest where, in rounds, two photographs are displayed on the screen. Members then vote Right or Left and the higher scoring image goes through to the next round.

The excitement and interest grows as each round is shown, until eventually it does reduce to a winner!
Knockout winners
Our congratulations to the worthy winners. Next week, the last official meeting and the AGM will finish with Three of a Kind, another challenge organised by Bill Norfolk. Submit your three photographs, please, by Saturday 24th March.
