WPF – Photo Convention




Each year the W.P.F. organises a photographic convention at the University of Wales, Lampeter, Ceredigion. It is the only one of its kind to be held in Wales!

The Convention is a chance for photographers from the whole of Wales to get together to share their enthusiasm, exchange ideas and maybe learn something new along the way.Each year we bring in the very best guest speakers and presenters and provide a full and varied programme for the whole weekend.

While the University dates from 1822, the accommodation is definitely 21st century with Single rooms on Campus, all with en-suite facilities. Good food  self-service breakfast and lunch, three-course waitress service dinner on Saturday night, with tea, coffee and biscuits served at intervals through the day. There is always a party mood in the evenings and a chance to enjoy a glass of wine with good friends.Our speakers will take you around the world with their photography.

The market town of Lampeter dates from medieval times and is set in the beautiful Teifi Valley. It is only 13 miles from Aberaeron with its harbour and brightly painted Georgian houses and 11 miles from Tregaron, a stopping place for the drovers on their way over the Cambrian Mountains to the Abergwesyn Mountain Pass. Just north of Tregaron are the ruins of Strata Florida, a twelfth century Cistercian Abbey.

So, if you like your photography to include shots of beautiful valleys, wild uplands, ancient ruins or the sweep of a coastline, then come along to Lampeter. Come early on Friday or stay an extra day and have a marvellous photo shoot as well.

We hope to see you there!

I heard nothing but praise from all quarters of the audience.There was good social interaction throughout the weekend and the food was fabulous. You have every reason to be proud of your efforts in organizing such a fabulous, stimulating and interesting weekend. Congratulations and very well done“.
