Welcome to Penwith Photographic Group, or The PPG as we are known by our friends.

We are a very friendly and social camera club. Open to anyone with an interest in photography. Our aim is to encourage and advance our members photography at all levels, via lectures, demonstrations, competitions, exhibitions, coddiwomples (field trips) and interaction of club members themselves. We are a democratic club with every member having an equal say in the running of the club.

We meet Thursday evenings throughout the year, with the exception of the Christmas period. In the winter months at our clubhouse, Ludgvan Community Centre in Ludgvan near Penzance and during the Summer months on location around West Cornwall, when we hold weekly evening field trips.

If you are considering joining a camera club, we would like to meet you. Come along for a couple of evenings to see what we are all about. You’ll be able to see some photography, have a chat amongst enthusiasts and even get a cup of tea and a biscuit.




With a membership of around fifty we have plenty of members at all skills levels from beginners through enthusiasts to professionals, who use both dSLRs and Mirrorless systems from the big two, Canon and Nikon as well as several of the other brands.

We have members who specialise in all genres, wildlife, landscape, creative, abstract, portraiture and street, to name a few. Many have excellent knowledge of Lightroom, Photoshop, website design with some having worked in the IT sector.
