Welcome to the Port Franks and Area Camera Club Home Page

PFCC Enhanced LogoThe PFCC invites you to come and enjoy guest speakers, information sessions, Comment & Review nights, and Walkabouts.  Meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of the month (except holidays) from January to November at the Port Franks Community Centre, 9997 Port Franks Road, upstairs in the Optimist Hall, at 7 PM.  Walkabouts are usually one Saturday morning each month. Our relaxed meetings are a great opportunity to meet other area residents who are interested in photography.

Our Goal: We are an organization dedicated to fostering the creativity of its members as they enhance their skills in the art of photography.  The Club will endeavour to generate an environment in which photographers can learn from one another, socialize with like-minded individuals and motivate its members to increase their knowledge and enjoyment of photography.

Our members come primarily from the Grand Bend and Port Franks area, but all are welcome. Here is some information on our upcoming meetings.


THEME: Animal Photography

Monday August 12

We frequently encounter animals – sometimes they are pets and in our daily lives at other times they are wild and the pictures must be taken on their terms. Tom will talk to us about how to get the best pictures of animals. We will also discuss the upcoming Scavenger Hunt, the Field Trip to Windsor, and the Lambton Museum Collaboration.

Saturday August 17

We are planning our walkabout to photograph and learn more about Alpacas at the Sylvan Alpaca farm.

Monday August 26

We will of course be reviewing our Animal Theme images tonight. The Flickr tag will be pfccanimal19. Tag up to three of your animal images for the review. We will also be splitting into smaller groups to discuss and critique pictures. This exercise will help us critique our own images so that we can improve our photographic eye.

For other activities or events in our area please see our Upcoming page.
