About Us

We have been busy organising meetings, a distinctions advisory day, field trips and competitions and these can be seen on our 'Events' page. All our events are open to members and non-members. Generally prices for members are discounted.

In March 2018 we held a successful field trip to the Museum of National History at St Fagans and hope to make this a regular event. 

We currently have a photo competition open to all members in South Wales closing date July 18. Please contact David Paskin, South Wales RO for details. You can enter from the South Wales RPS web page and pay online.

On July 7 we are are holding an LRPS and ARPS Distinctions Advisory Day at the Cynon Valley Museum in Aberdare. You can attend as an Observer or as a Participant. Please contact local organiser Trevor James ARPS for more details.

On Saturday August 11 we are running a photobook workshop in Swansea Central Library using Bob Books Software. Please contact Rhys Jones for more details.

Following our succesful meeting in June with Les Loosemore and Joan Blease, we will be holding a meeting on September 30 in Briton Ferry where Janet Haines ARPS, Chairman of the RPS Digital Group and local Digital Group member Gary Shinner LRPS will be presenting their work.

Our Regional AGM will be held on Sunday 18 November at St Pauls Community Centre, Port Talbot followed by a talk on landscape photography and recommended equipment by South Wales based professional landscape photographer, Mari Owen.

We are always keen to attract new members and welcome ideas to develop our programme in the future. The RPS gives a discounted membership for anyone under 25 so please spread the word. The RPS will be moving into fantastic new Headquarters in the Paintworks Quarter in Bristol and there will be a fantastic opportunity for all South Wales members to take advantage of that.

South Wales has a thriving Audio Visual group and the local Chair Edgar Gibbs FRPS is organiser of the International Audio Visual festival in Cheltenham 22-23 September. Worth a visit for all local members! 

All our events are open to the public.
