Cwmbran Photographic Society is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, having been founded way back in 1955.
It was known as the Cwmbran Camera Club when it was originally formed by the late Wilf Hathaway. It now meets under its revised name, at Cwmbran Community Centre, Ventnor Road, Old Cwmbran ( find out how to find us here)
We meet every Wednesday 7.30 to 9.30pm September to July, Christmas and New Year excepted.
The society enjoys the benefits of being affiliated to the PAGB (Photographic Alliance of Great Britain) as a member of the WPF (Welsh Photographic Federation). We offer a warm welcome to all new members, be they experienced or just starting out in photography. Although most of the members are now working with digital, there are still a few who prefer to work with film.
The aim of the society is to further the enjoyment of photography, in all its aspects, in an informal and friendly atmosphere, by providing as varied and interesting a programme as possible. To this end we hold monthly competitions for prints,slides and digital images which are judged by in house and outside judges, points being awarded towards end of year trophies.
We also take part in friendly Inter-Club “battles” to give members the chance to submit their best work against other local clubs in South-East Wales and sometimes further afield.
We have plenty of free parking just outside.
We hope that the pictures and information on this site will encourage you to come along and share our passion of photography. Some key contacts and other details of our organisation can be found here.
