Our 2020/21 season started in September but as the ongoing Covid restrictions prevent us from meeting in a group, we are running our programme as weekly online sessions on Tuesdays at 7.30. Full details of our programme and how to join a meeting are on the THIS SEASON page.
We warmly welcome new members. You can join us through the links below – “Thinking of joining” – or find out more about our club through the CONTACT US link above.
Welcome to Conwy Camera Club
Conwy Camera Club is the oldest photographic society in North Wales. Our weekly meetings on Tuesday evenings from September to May are at “Y Morfa Venue” located at Conwy Borough FC. With ample free parking, comfortable seating and double the space of our old base, this venue provides the opportunity for a more innovative programme without the need to restrict membership numbers.

Members of Conwy Camera Club were saddened to learn in June of the passing of Gwyn Roberts at the age of 87 years. He was an enthusiastic young member of our club in the 1950s, when he took the self-portrait on the left.
He learned skills from other club members, including Emrys Jones, and was inspired to become a press photographer. He covered countless events for newspapers in North Wales.
Gwyn rejoined the club with his wife Brenda about 20 years ago. He helped to establish the club’s archive in 2005, contributing many of his own historic images. He was one of the earliest club members to own an advanced digital SLR, and photographed some of the larger prints by other members to create digital copies for the archive.
Gwyn was always a great help whenever the club needed a photograph of people attending an exhibition or other event, always arranging people so that the group would look good. Many people in North Wales knew him through his lifelong love of steam trains. In 2014 a book of his photographs was published by Y Lolfa.
No longer showing in Conwy …
From April 2007 to November 2019, Conwy Camera Club had a display case in the foyer of the Civic Hall (library building) in Conwy where members displayed a different set of prints every month. The Civic Hall’s replacement by the new culture centre on Bangor Road meant the display came to an end on 7 November. During the 12 years of the display, 134 different photographers displayed a total of more than 1,200 prints there. Thank you to those who contributed, and to everyone who viewed the pictures – your comments over the years were much appreciated!
