Welcome to Blackwood Photographic Club!
NOTICE: Due to Covid 19, physical meetings at the Blackwood Memorial Hall Studio are suspended until further notice.
Competitions (there are some great Social Documentary opportunities out there!) and some other activities may be continued online, so the club is still active! The committee will notify members and this notice will be updated when such arrangements have been made.
Stay safe and enjoy the opportunity for some outdoor photography in remote settings or table-top photography in your own home!
Blackwood Photographic Club was formed in 1983 to encourage & promote enjoyment of the art of photography in our community. With over 60 members from all walks of life we have a wide-ranging level of skills and experience that we are more than willing to share.
Among us there are those who work in a traditional way using slide and negative film while others have fully embraced digital photography and electronic imaging. Members cameras range from film cameras (compact, large format & SLR), to digital (compacts, superzooms and dSLRs) and we occasionally dabble with disposable film cameras – we encourage all photographic devices!
The club has fortnightly meetings for most of the year with regular competitions, workshops, critique sessions (show and tell for grown ups), regular field trips and a variety of informative and social activities.
Please view our programme from this link, the menu above (choose the year) or at a glance on the lower right of this page (scroll down to the calendar feed) to see if you’re interested in what the club offers.
You may also view examples of our work from the Top Digital Images and Top Prints from this year’s competitions, the slide show of the latest competition images at right, BPCSA galleries link in the menu above, or scroll down to see what members are posting on the club Flickr page. Financial club members also have access to our Facebook page which has images and ideas.
Everyone is welcome at our meetings, held in The Studio, Memorial Hall, 21 Coromandel Parade, Blackwood on alternate Thursday evenings (starting at 7:30pm), when you will have an opportunity to join in our activities without obligation. There is no need to bring a camera unless it’s a practical workshop 😉
We look forward to welcoming you into our community.
