Presentation by Marija Lees - Out in the Cold

Marija Lees LRPS discusses her work including her Exeter/Yaroslavl (Russia) twinning project

Marija is an Exeter-based photographer with a keen interest in photo-journalism. She visited and photographed Yaroslavl, Russia in winter while Aleksei Lobanov, who was born in Yaroslavl came to photograph Exeter - the result being a 'Tale of Two Cities' exhibition held at Exeter's RAM museum.  She considers Russia’s harsh and unforgiving winters as formative on Russian society and the peoples’ way of life.  She gives a strong impression of the cold and its effect on the citizens as they go about their daily activities. A perfect way to gain some perspective on winters in Devon!

Presentation by Linda Wevill FRPS - Landscape Photography

Linda has been passionate about photography for many years. She moved to Devon about 20 years ago and is able to combine this passion with the beautiful surroundings that she finds herself in. Linda especially enjoys experimenting with shutter speeds which enable her to capture the movement of the sea and the atmosphere of the landscape. She also enjoys experimenting with texture layers in Photoshop in order to create the ambiance she is trying to achieve. Although her main photographic interest is the landscape, she also enjoys capturing a diverse range of images, from still life to travel photography.

Presentation by Victoria Hillman - Creative Nature

A scientist by training with a BSc in zoology with marine zoology from the University of Wales, Bangor and an MSc in Wildlife Biology and Conservation from Edinburgh Napier University, photography for a long time was just a hobby.

From an early age I have enjoyed being outdoors and had a fascination for all things living. This was an interest that was encouraged and nurtured by my family and teachers. In the years that followed I developed a deep understanding and passion for the natural world and knew that working with animals was the career path for me. Alongside my studies I began to develop my photography with the help of family, friends and teachers. This development is ongoing, learning more every time I go out with my camera and has blossomed into my own unique way of portraying the natural world.

Presentation by Peter Crane ARPS - Street photography

Street photography for me is an instinctive urge and after six or seven years of wandering the streets with my camera it still is to some extent about staying curious and inspired – and then looking for that decisive moment. I have to admit, I just love it!
