Inspirations – local friends of the Club


From Mike J and Diana

Jane White

I sent an email to Jane White who was due to talk to us about iPhone photography in October ….  she wanted to cancel it, but remain available.  She sent a link to her website.  I found her images “breathtakingly beautiful.”  Have a look [Mike]

I have become a serious photographer since joining Exeter Camera Club.  I enjoyed my years as Membership Secretary and Committee member.  I was enrolled as a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society in 2011.

My joy is to blend my photography with Art.  I am a keen iphonepgrapher and enjoy shooting with an iPhone 7 plus and have won competitions with iphone images.  I also use an Olympus OM-D-E 5 MK 11 with various lenses.  I have recently become addicted to the Lensbaby range of creative lenses.

All of my images are edited and processed using an Apple iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil for drawing and painting.

More recently, I embarked on another challenge of photomicroscopy and was successful in March 2018 to be enrolled as an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society.

David R White

David is very familiar to club members as a local nature photographer, particularly in the Otter Valley.  You can see his amazing close-ups of wildlife on Facebook and he regularly posts images to Wild Woodbury’s Facebook page, too, from ‘beyond the parish boundary.’ [Diana]

Malcolm Randle

A resident of Woodbury Salterton, Malcolm sets an amazing example of working through projects.  His Facebook page is full of albums of stunning and often jewel-like imagery of flowers, insects, birds and landscapes, mostly from the surrounding areas.  My personal favourite is the album he made of local wildflowers called The Bee’s Eye View for the Woodbury Wide Awake project – but I’m biassed! [Diana]


Colin Varndell

Colin spoke to the club a couple of times last year about his natural history photography, and most of us were blown away by his imagery.  We were trying to organise a photography day at his place in W Dorset, but circumstances prevented it happening – fingers-crossed for next year, health permitting ….. My personal favourites once again are Colin’s wildflower photos.  On Facebook during lockdown he is running a competition to name the flowers in his images …. no, I didn’t bother trying to guess this one, either – but his images definitely make you look twice!
