Workshops at the PCP
We have three great workshops scheduled before the first of the year and may add in two more. Here is the current list, just click on each for full details!
The TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition
An Exhibition of Imagination
November 4th – November 20th, 2016
The debate about purity in photography is a longstanding one and has a rich history. However, it has reached new levels of voracity as the use of the transformative graphics software has exploded. Many shows, and even more judges, as well as members of the viewing public have been dismissive of photographs whose basic nature has been altered by the photographer in post production. Well, not anymore! The TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition was conceived and is designed to be a showcase solely for the exceptional imagery being created by innovative photographers who use all of the tools available to them. After a huge opening night we can finally tell you who the winners are!

With more gratitude than I can ever express, I would like to thank Stephanie Werner Lisle for doing such a wonderful job curating the show and so much more, Nancy Rowan for everything she did and does for both this show and to keep the PCP going, Dore’ Vorum and George Rumell for getting the show up (literally) and running, and Jim LaSala for doing such a fine job of judging.
Thanks also goes out to our sponsors Topaz Labs, Flash Graphics, and Rutherford’s Camera Shop. Without them events like this would not be possible and I urge everyone to support these fine companies who are supporting the photographic community.
We have a great line-up of free events that will be held during the Exhibition! Please click here for details and to register.

TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition Participants Announced!
The AMERICANA Exhibition is returning!
OK, so it was crowded – but everyone had a really good time!
With the huge success of last year’s show we would be foolish not to try to make it even better this year! We are going to run AMERICANA in March of 2017 to hopefully avoid another 30″ snowstorm hitting us the week before we open. Same theme, same Camera Club Challenge, same Saturday discussions, but all made better from experience and some new ideas!
The PCP’s Flickr Page
♦ The PCP has had a Flickr Group for a bit, but we really hadn’t made the most of it. That’s changing and we’ve had a lot of folks join over the last month. People are really beginning to use it to provide a platform where Pennsylvania photographers can come together to share their images, knowledge, and experiences with like-minded people. Please click on this link to our Flickr page to join the group, post images, critique, and start discussions on any photographic topic. Obviously, its success is totally dependent on what we all make of it, so feel free to share the link with friends and members of other photographic groups to which you may belong. Everyone is welcome except Trolls and not-nice people so please join us!
