Linda Bell LRPS EFIAP BPE4 AWPF GPU2
I 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.

Ian O'Neill FIPF DPAGB ARPS AWPF HonNWPA
Ian 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.

Terry Mills CPAGB AWPF HonNWPA
Terry has always had a camera, getting the photography bug when he was given a Brownie 127.
In his early 20s, while hitchhiking to Australia (!), he became more serious about photography after meeting
an obsessed camera man; when he saw the results of his proper efforts he was blown away and so got more
serious about it all.
Terry hadn’t really appreciated the club scene until he was introduced to Deudraeth Camera Club in 2002 and
since then has had various roles in the club, NWPA and PAGB. He acknowledges that because of that he has
met some great friends and learnt a lot about photography.
He likes to see his work used and so is involved with a couple of community groups and tends towards
photographic projects. One such project is “A Year in the Life of Criccieth” which has taken over 5 years thus
far as it just keeps expanding. But it does mean that he meets a lot of people and engages in new
"Photography has certainly enhanced my life".
