Great names like Dorothea Lange, Julia Margaret Cameron, Diane Arbus, Annie Leibovitz, Linda McCartney and her daughter Mary, and Eve Arnold have impacted on the photographic trends of their times.

They have all inspired me and I really recommend searching through their work online or buying books to see their amazing photography.

I thought that this week we would celebrate the fantastic women photographers in Northumberland Camera Club and their wide range of styles.

The i newsletter cut through the noise

From classic landscapes to chronicling daily life and to surreal experimentation, we see some brilliant work from the women in the group.

Several new contributors are included here.

Women’s posts are still outnumbered by those made by men so here’s a call for the women to keep clicking and posting their shots to redress that imbalance.

Sandra Iddon, Northumberland Camera Club

Thank you everyone for posting, and I look forward to seeing your seasonal shots next time around.

Everyone is welcome to join Northumberland Camera Club. Post images to http://bit.ly/PicNland and tag them #PicNorthumberland, giving some background about your inspiration.

You can also email photographs to northumberland.gazette@jpress.co.uk using the same tag.
