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.

JULY 2019

THEME: Rich and Colourful

Monday July 8

Colour has such an impact on most of our photographs. Tonight Paul and Eugene will teach us how to enhance the colours to make our pictures more vibrant but without making them look unrealistic. We will also go outside to take pictures of colourful gardens. Janette will also be talking to us about the walkabout to the Kettle Point Pow-Wow and the appropriate etiquette when photographing the celebrations.

Saturday July 13

Our monthly walkabout will be to The Kettle Point PowWow. We suggest getting to the site around noon to get a good seat before the Grand Entry at 1 pm.  There will be food booths available if you wish to grab lunch there. This will be a wonderful chance to capture some colourful images and learn more about the culture of our First Nations. This will be an afternoon activity and we suggest bringing a lawn chair, hat, sunscreen, and water. The event runs all afternoon but you can come and go as you please. The website for the Powwow is https://kettlepoint.org/powwow/. The powwow also takes place on Sunday with the Grand Entry at noon. The powwow is held in Kettle Point just off Highway 21 between Port Franks and Forest.

Monday July 22

We will be honoured with guest speaker Karen Brown talking about Live Event Photography. Judy Jewell will be sharing some of her favourite photographs and of course we will review our theme entries. Upload your colourful images to Flickr and then tag your three favourites with ‘pfcccolourful19’.
