WELCOME TO POCKLINGTON CAMERA CLUB
“Hello and welcome, my name is Alex McGregor. I am the Chairman of Pocklington Camera Club. I am glad to say that I have been a member of this great club for around 20 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 members knowledge and experiences are shared and at the forefront of our programme of 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, mobile phone, 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 abilities.
The membership consists of a wide-ranging mix of ages who share a great sense of humour as we often self-critique our own images in a friendly environment. We find this type of session is invaluable as learning how to continually improve is the key.
Throughout the year we have series of fun monthly themes as well as internal competitions. We are also a member club of the Yorkshire Coast Photographic Group (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.
