The Jefferson County Photography Club (JCPC), formed in October 2008, has a mission of providing “an opportunity for members of the community to share, learn and develop photographic skills,” as well as to explore “the creative and documentary potential of photography to preserve the rich history and culture of Jefferson County.”
The club works exclusively with still photography—film prints, black and white, and digital. Currently, the club has members, ranging from beginner to experienced to professional. Club members meet the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Fire Hall Gallery, 108 North George Street, Charles Town, WV. Club activities include photo contests, presentations, topic discussions, image critiques, field trips, gallery showings, specialized photography classes, and of course, the continuous exchange of information and ideas. Plans for the future include community photo shoots, historical shoots and youth education programs.
