WELCOME TO POCKLINGTON CAMERA CLUB

 

Hello my name is Colin Godber. I  am currently privileged to be the Chairman of Pocklington Camera Club. I have been proud to be a member of this great club for around 7 years or so. I would describe this club and its membership as the most friendly and supportive group of people I have ever been involved with and I can honestly say every member I class as a friend.

The Club is a warm friendly and welcoming place to socialise with like-minded people where knowledge and experiences are always at the forefront of our activities.

You do not have to be a photographer to be a member of this club, you just need to have an interest in the hobby. It doesn’t matter what you use to take your photos with iphone, point and shoot etc. You don’t need to own the most expensive camera equipment to enjoy what the Club has to offer. The Club is about allowing individuals to engage and improve their image-taking.

We are a widely mixed age group membership who share a great sense of humour as we self critique our own images in a safe environment. This type of session is invaluable as learning how to improve is the key.

Throughout the year we have monthly themes and open competitions. We are also a member club of the Yorkshire Coast

Photographic Society (YCPG)  where we engage in inter club competitions several times throughout the winter months.

 

New members are always welcome to come along and have a free session to get to know us and see what we do every Thursday evening from 19:30 at the United Services Club in Pocklington.  (Subject to Covid Restrictions Allowing)
