Cwmbran Photographic Society celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2015 having been founded in 1955 as Cwmbran Camera Club by the late Wilf Hathaway.

We meet every Wednesday 7.30pm 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 members are working with digital, there are still those who also 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 print and digital images which are judged by in-house and external judges. Points are awarded for successful submissions counting towards the Photographer of the Year trophy. At least once a month we undertake photographic field trips across South Wales and beyond known as our ‘Fotoforays’.

 We take part in friendly inter-club “battles” to give members the chance to submit their best work against other clubs in South East Wales and sometimes further afield.

 We hope that the images and information on the site will encourage you to come along and share our passion for photography. Some key contacts and other details of the organisation can be found using the menu tabs above.
