In 1989, the Northeast Photography Club was formed by a small group of dedicated photographers. Its mission was to promote interest in and appreciation for the art of photography.
After more than twenty years, the mission remains the same and the club has evolved into a large, active organization of over sixty members from the Northeast Pennsylvania Region. Members’ skill levels range from beginner to advanced, amateur to professional. Their areas of interest include portraiture, nature, landscape, street and sports photography. Both traditional and digital techniques are used.
Monthly meetings enable members to share their knowledge and are dedicated to the improvement of photographic technique and vision. The meetings consist of a short business session and a monthly competition followed by a program on one aspect of photography. The presentation may be a critique of member photographs, a skilled amateur or professional speaker, a workshop or a general discussion of photography. Periodically, field trips are organized to further encourage the photographic experience.
Several exhibits of members’ works are held each year. Every show is judged by a professional photographer, and awards are given for Best in Show, First Place, Second Place and Honorable Mention. Club members’ work is also exhibited at art venues throughout the region.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in photography.
