Images (L to R) by Jan Wilson-Challon, Bryan Griffiths & Linda Bell





Linda BellI am a local photographer who lives just outside Mold in North Wales.
I enjoy all types of photography but particularly enjoy doing Nature and still life.
I started entering exhibitions and photographic salons in 2012, and have received much pleasure from this, gaining some awards along the way. We live in a beautiful part of the world and it inspires me on a regular basis to get the camera out and go exploring.

Charles Meadows



Ian O'NeillIan has been interested in photography from an early age thanks to his brother, who used to develop his own pictures in a makeshift darkroom (their bathroom!), and for a six year old it was magic. A camera was the first thing he ever purchased with his first salary when starting work and he has never been without one since.

At the moment he uses the Olympus system which is light and gives excellent results; after 25 years with Canon, Olympus gives him what he wants in a small package. The genres he's most interested in photography-wise are People, Environmental, Landscapes and Macro . . . but he does turn his hand to other subjects when the urge is there. But his main interest is people photography and he enjoys the rapport to get the perfect shot ("yet to get it . . . still striving for it!").

He is a member of Blaenau Ffestiniog camera club and is their Competition Secretary, as well as webmaster.  It is a small club with some really impressive photographers across so many genres. He's also a member of Eryri Photo Group and the Royal Photographic Society.

Jason Wharam GW DPAGB BA(Hons)

I was born in Zimbabwe, discovered photography whilst doing my PHD and found a deep passion for it. Whilst working as a Professional Safari Guide this passion grew and developed.

Being in such beautiful and breath-taking surroundings on a daily basis allowed me to develop my unique style. I have continued to develop my photography career since moving to the UK both as a judge and speaker for the PAGB, SPA and NWPA

I have become a keen landscape photographer and can often be found in the Scottish Highlands or the Mountains of North Wales. My work has been appreciated by many, appearing in publications such Africa Geographic and National Geographic, Viewbug and 500px as well as being displayed in exhibitions all over the World. I look forward to this post and will try my hardest to fulfil our members photographic appetites.
