Peter Jepson DPAGB BPE1*

I have been involved with photography since the early 1980’s, with motorsport and wild life being the subject matter I enjoyed taking the most. As the years progressed I started to enter competitions and I’ve been lucky enough to have had success at Club, National and International levels. Currently I enjoy landscape photography but look forward to being trackside or in a hide, it goes without saying but every time I go out with my kit, I always get a buzz and hope that I might be lucky and capture that special moment.

During my time in photography I have been a member of Smethwick PS, Solihull PS and Worcestershire CC, where I was chairman for a season. I moved from the Midlands with my wife a while ago and we now reside within the Snowdonia National Park with our two dogs and where we are blessed with the most amazing landscape, how could you not be inspired.

Tony Davies LRPS, AWPF, CPAGB, GPU Aphrodite, EFIAP, GPU 1Cr. BPE1* 

 

A self-taught amateur photographer living in Llandudno: Tony was born in Newport, south Wales, and qualified as an electrician. Work allowed him to become an expatriate for twenty out of the following forty-three years.

Working in places like Saudi Arabia and Iraq during the nineteen seventies and eighties made it difficult to pursue photography. As a result, his hobby nearly came to an end. But in 2011, while working in Iraq for the second time he bought his first DSLR; a Nikon D7000. This was soon followed by a D800, and eventually a D810. He also now has a Nikon Z6!

Many hours of his spare time have been spent taking photographs and studying the various techniques required to improve his skills.

Retiring from work in 2015 Tony joined Conwy Camera Club and soon started entering club competitions, exhibitions and salons. Tony gained the Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society in November 2015 and his CPAGB in April 2017 followed by an AWPF in 2018. Recently he was honoured to be appointed the UK representative of the Global Photographic Union (GPU) and has since gained the GPU Aphrodite Title.

As well as Conwy Camera Club, Tony is also a member of the Royal Photographic Society, the Eryri Photo Group, UPP C64 and GPU.

Ian O'Neill DPAGB ARPS AWPF

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.

He feels it has been privilege to be asked to judge and lecture in numerous clubs in the NWPA and has enjoyed every minute of it; he says "the enthusiasm of the members in photography is simply wonderful to behold, may it continue".

Christine Langford LRPS APAGB CPAGB

Christine LangfordLike many people Christine has had cameras since her teens which were only used on holidays. She joined a camera club in Hertfordshire in the mid-80s and it was then that she realised that she had to start thinking more about the actual picture and what might constitute an acceptable composition and so on.
Since then Christine has been actively involved in the administrative side of photography at club level, federation level and also on the Executive of the PAGB. Just like in her teenage years, most of her pictures are taken on holidays, the English Lake District and France in particular, and so landscapes and architecture feature most often.
She has been secretary of the Eryri Photo Group for over 20 years and edits the NWPA Newsletter as well as being on the PAGB Executive.
Involvement in photography has played a large part in her life and over the years she has genuinely enjoyed the fellowship and friendship of people she has met.
"Any photographic successes I've had along the way are an added bonus".
