Jean Chadwick CPAGB

Jean, as well as husband Phil, is now a member of the Eryri Photo Group but her first club was Wigan PS, this being a welcome night out, leaving the babies with grandparents. There she especially liked travelogues and enjoyed some of the wonderful slide shows put to music. On moving, there was no chance for club photography, but their attic began to groan under the weight of family albums and holiday records.
Consequently, when they retired in 2004 she decided to take up club photography, joining Conwy CC as a Beginner, and was delighted to have several winning images which took her into the Advanced section. Subsequently they joined Llandudno PS, which was closer to home. She is taking a bit of a “sabbatical” at the moment as she and Phil have been busy visiting clubs all over North Wales with Phil judging and lecturing: "we really enjoy the friendship and welcome given< to us".
She enjoys travel photography, people in their environment, and photographing their two dogs! Jean used images from their trips to India in a panel for her AWPF (Associateship of the Welsh Photographic Federation) and for her successful
CPAGB (Credit, PAGB) print submission.

Phil Chadwick DPAGB BPE5 AWPF AFIAP

Phil, with wife Jean, is currently a member of the Eryri Photo Group having belonged to a number of other photo clubs over many years. In the 1970s he joined Wigan PS for 4 years, then Crewe CC in the 1980s for about 3 years followed by
Cefni CC on moving yet again. When they retired in 2004 they decided to get back into club photography and turn digital!
As they were now living in the Conwy area they joined Conwy CC before joining Llandudno PS. Phil has enjoyed success at club level, never being out of the top three photographers in any club.
As to his type of photography, he enjoys taking people in their environment, such as street photography, with a bit of landscape and animals as well.
Since 2010 Phil has enjoyed entering national and international salons gaining his BPE5 and AFIAP distinctions for salon acceptances as well achieving his CPAGB and DPAGB distinctions back to back in 2011 (prints and PDIs) and in 2015 his
AWPF with a panel of prints.

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".

Ian O'Neill DPAGB LRPS 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".
