Please note: Swansea Camera Club is now permanently closed.
Tuesday 5th September 2023.
After 162 years, it is with great sadness that we have to announce the
permanent closure of Swansea Camera Club. The Coronavirus Pandemic has impacted us greatly by reducing our membership considerably.
We are proud that several eminent 19th century Swansea citizens played a major role in popularising photography in the mid-1800s, when photography was in its infancy.
John Dillwyn Llewellyn and the Reverend Richard Calvert Jones (two founder members)
were instrumental in advancing the science of photography.
Reference to the formation of a Camera Club in Swansea appeared in a
local newspaper on the 3rd February 1861. It reported the formation of
a photographic society for Swansea and the surrounding area.
This society then evolved into the modern day swansea camera club.
We would like to thank everyone who has Judged competitions for us,
Given presentations to us, Sponsored us and Supported us throughout the years.
