About Us

Serving Plano, Dallas and the surrounding suburbs, the Plano Photography Club was established in 1984 for anyone interested in photography. In 1990 the club was incorporated as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. PDF copies of the Club’s By-Laws and Constitution are available.

Guests are Welcome

There is no need to notify the club in advance if you wish to attend a meeting to see what we are all about. Just show up! Adults across all skill levels, from beginner to professional, are welcome to join and participate in club meetings and activities.


Monthly club meetings are held at West Plano Presbyterian Church, 2709 Custer Road in Plano, on the third Thursday of each month (except December when no meeting is held). Club programs begin promptly at 7:15 pm. Preceding the program in most months, there is a training session (study groups) at 6 pm.

Executive Committee Meetings

Monthly executive committee meetings are normally held at 7:00 pm on the first Thursday of each month (except December when no meeting is held), at the same location as club meetings. These meetings are open to all members. (Please email the PPC President to get the time and location.)
