The Riverhead Photo Club (RPC) is sponsored by the Friends of the Riverhead Free Library (Friends) and is a member of the Photographic Federation of Long Island (PFLI). It meets the second and fourth Thursday of every month in the Library Craft Room and is opened to all ages and levels of expertise who are interested in the artistic, technical and social aspects of the hobby. Members are encouraged to join the Friends of the Library.
RPC shutterbugs are friendly and willing to ask and answer questions in an informal and open atmosphere. Meeting agendas include showing images based on a theme or assignment, having a presentation chosen by the members who give input to the activities committee, or having a guest judge come to offer constructive critiques of work presented in digital or printed format. Entry in monthly PFLI competitions is encouraged to allow feedback on technical and artistic aspects of the craft.
RPC has the unique opportunity to support and participate in the long running Photographic Exhibition and Competition Event (PEACE) that is sponsored and funded by the Friends of Riverhead Library. The PEACEvent is a natural extension of our work during the year and a public way of sharing the club’s photographic talents and compete for the prizes offered.
New members are always welcome.
