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.


Monday December 9

Our annual Christmas Social at the Pinedale. The cost will be $10 and the start time will be 6:30. See Judy for more details. Advance payment would be most appreciated.


Monday January13

Our theme for January will be “White on White”. A chance to play with light, shadows, and different tones to create your theme images. Certainly one of the greatest portrait photographers was Yousuf Karsh and Richard will use some of our meeting to discuss his body of work. We will also be having some of our members present their Personal Projects.

Saturday January 18

Our walkabout will take us to MacNaughton Park in Exeter. Let’s hope we have some snow to set the background for our “White on White” images. If we are really lucky we might encounter some of the white squirrels which are resident in the area.

Monday January 27

We will be having two theme review segments. Images from our “Altered Reality” (pfccreality19) and our “White on White” (pfccwhite20) themes will be presented. Richard will discuss the work of one of his Favourite Photographers – Vivian Maier. To round out the evening we will have a My Favourite Photos session from one of our members.

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