NEXT MEETING: 6.30pm Monday 26th June, 2017

Meet at the far end of the old railway track near to Llanerchaeron with cameras in hand.

The Club has entered 5 images in the Barrian Cup, being held by Barry Camera Club at 2.00pm on Saturday 11th June, 2016, at St. Francis Millenium Hall, Porth Y Castell, Barry Garden Suburb, Barry.

On Thursday 4th March, 2016 Pennant Photography Club entered a five-way interclub competition with  Cardigan, Aberystwyth, Carmarthen, and Newquay Camera Clubs, held in Newquay. 

Each Club provided 8 printed images which were judged by Harry Gardiner from Tenby & District Camera Club. The final results were Aberystwyth 147 pts; New Quay 139 pts; Pennant 136 points; Cardigan 131pts; and Carmarthen 129pts.  Another good result for the Club.

On Monday 14th March, 2016, we had a guest speaker, Bruce Cardwell from Borth.

Bruce related how he got into photography, being self-taught, and his love for horses and passion for music and instruments. He brought along copies of his books, ‘Images of Welsh Music’ and ‘Hoofpicks’: Photographs of the Horse in Wales.

We were then treated to a preview of his latest project and forth coming exhibition, a portrait study of Borth.
This was a remarkable study, in black and white, of characters living in and around Borth.

An entertaining and instructive evening endorsing a belief that the picture you want to take is in your eye and captured by the camera. It has little to do with numbers or digital enhancement.

Bruce’s Exhibition, Borth Yma O Hyd, commences at 12.30pm on Saturday 16th April, 2016 at The Museum Of Modern Art (MOMA) Machynlleth. Exhibition runs from 16 April to 4 June 2016 in the  Foyer Gallery.

‘On a shingle bank on the coast of Wales, surrounded by water on three sides, the village of Borth supports a defiantly individualistic, vibrant community. The photography of Bruce Cardwell, beautifully augmented by the insightful wordcraft of poet Elin ap Hywel and the evocative palette of painter Rhodri Evans, has created an intriguing portrait showcasing some of the many 

The Pennant Photography Club hosted their first interclub competition with Aberystwyth Camera Club on Monday 22nd February, 2016 at Pennant Community Centre.

40 images, 20 from each club, were judged by Andrew Warren from Newquay Camera Club. All images were Photographic Digital Images which were projected to view. The final result was Aberystwyth 138 points and Pennant 151 points. A close result and a most enjoyable evening. The event concluded with a buffet


You can see the Club’s work displayed in the restaurant and main function room at Ty Glyn Restaurant & Conference Centre, Ciliau Aeron.

Someone will be always willing to show you how to utilise the features on your camera along with information on picture composition. We will not be getting too technical and you will be able to go away and practice to see how it works.

Visitors are always more than welcome to come along. You don’t need an expensive camera and long lenses! All you need is a love of taking photographs. Also, you do not have to enter any competitions but you would have a couple of opportunities to display your work to the Public.

Arrangements are to be made for a return inter club competition with Aberystwyth in October/November.



On Monday 19th October, 2015, five members of Pennant Photography Club took part in a four-way Competition hosted by Cardigan Photo Club at Cardigan Rugby Club.
Clubs competing were from Cardigan Photo Club, Aberystwyth Camera Club, Newquay Camera Club and Pennant Photography Club. Each Club provided 10 printed images.
It turned out to be a very close scoring event with Pennant leading by 1 point at the halfway stage. However, by the end of the evening we had scored 169 points and finished in a creditable third place. It was a very competitive event, entries being of a very high standard, with only 8 points separating first and fourth place.
The highest scoring Pennant entry was ‘Bad Hair Day’, an image taken by John Bradshaw which scored the maximum 20 points.
If you are interested in photography why not come and join us at Pennant Community Centre on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, at 8.00pm. You don’t have to enter competitions. Please view Cymuned Pennant Community website for further information.
Next meeting 8.00pm Monday 26th October, 2015. Come along and see what we are doing.


Pictures relating to the community will be placed on the community computer, as soon as it is repaired, for anyone to view. As soon as we have some photographic paper we will be able to print some of the pictures off, for a small charge. 

The Club will take a very informal format and if anyone wishes to take part in competitions, they can. We will also aim to provide images for the local Art & Craft Fair, along with the Christmas Fair in November. Meetings will consist of trips out, visiting speakers along with tuition in use of cameras and computer software. 
We have the facilities, projector and screen, to be able to look at images and show video/dvd. 
Come along and join the fledgling group and you may learn something, to make a better picture, or be able to show others a technique or two.

The type of camera does not matter - you will learn how to get better pictures and the best results.
If you come along bring along some photos, printed or on CD/DVD/Memory Stick, and of course your camera(s).
