Monthly Meeting


The event was held on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM.

The Members' Forum, "Methods of Portraiture"  by Ginia Apostolocus, will be a great and informative presentation. Ginia will talk about her approach to protraiture including topics on equipment, camera settings, lighting, location, props, how to connect with your model, and much more!  If you have an interest in portraits, you won't want to miss this!

Our guest speaker this evening is Henry Rowan, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Center for Photography. Henry's presentation "Is it a 5 or is it a 9?" will address the questions of why judges judge the way they do.  What is the sometimes seemingly narrow difference between winning First Place and not getting into the show? Would the results be that much different if you were the judge?  He will share some of his insights from years of judging camera clubs and competitive exhibitions. The presentation is designed to help people avoid some of the common pitfalls that occur when entering competitions and will include tips that will be beneficial for photographers at all levels.

What should make the evening even more fun is that the audience members will get a chance to judge a series of images themselves. It is always interesting to see how those scores compare to the original judge’s score and the results are often very surprising!

Henry is a frequent lecturer and judge throughout the region and teaches a variety of workshops at the PCP. Henry’s work is frequently on display at galleries and shows and he has gained a following for his distinctive style of portraiture as well as his unique portrayal of manscapes, nature, and sports. You may see his work at contact him at



Westminster Presbyterian Church

Driving to and from Westminster Presbyterian Church. Care must be taken when driving to and from the church, since it is adjacent to US 202 (on the southbound side) and this is a busy road with lots of fast-moving traffic. Traveling to the church from West Chester and the northern side. Drive south on High Street or US 202 Southbound. After passing Stetson Middle School on the right, be aware that West Pleasant Grove Road is the very next right-hand turn after the jug handle at the Stetson light (about 500 yards down). Slow down as you come to this turn, then make a right and then a left into the church parking lot. Traveling to the church from the south side. Option 1: You can come north on US and turn left into West Pleasant Grove Road but there is no light there and it’s a dangerous turn and not recommended. Option 2: Come north on US 202 and make a left onto Route 926, Street Road. Drive on 926 for 0.9 miles, make a right on South New Street, drive 0.6 miles, make a right on West Pleasant Grove Road, drive 0.8 miles and make a right into the church parking lot. Parking and entering the church. The church is a large facility and there are many entrances. We need to enter via the main entrance, which is a large feature of the church with a stone portico. You can’t miss it. Park anywhere near there; there are plenty of spaces. Please do not park in any restricted spaces. Leaving the church. To travel south, you can leave the church lot and travel south on US 202. Merge carefully! To travel north, note that you can NOT make a left onto US 202 northbound. You must do one of the following. Option 1: Travel South on US 202 to Route 926, then make a left and use the shopping center parking lot to change directions to the northbound road. Option 2: Leave the parking lot by turning left on West Pleasant Grove Road, then make a right on South New Street. New Street will take you north through the WCU campus and into West Chester. (Make a right on Rosedale to get back to High Street.)
