 - A potted history!
I've been keen on photography for as long as I can remember, initially with Kodak Box Brownie and various Instamatics, before graduating on to a Yashica SLR in my student years.
This turned into an active hobby when I discovered the world of Camera Clubs in the mid 1980's, joining Cam & Dursley Camera Club (now re-christened Tyndale Photography Club). Following a move to South Wales I became a member of Bridgend Camera Club for a short while, before another move led me to Wantage Camera Club, where I was a member for twenty eight years before finally moving to Devon and joining my current club, Exmouth Photo Group.
Along the way I became fascinated by audio-visual presentations, and have specialised in this branch of photography in addition to general club work.
I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society, and achieved LRPS with slides in 1982, ARPS with slide/tape AV in 1992, and FRPS in AV in 2003. I was honoured to be awarded the very first Fellowship with a panel of digitally-projected sequences. Since then I have been a member of the AV / Multimedia Distinctions Panel over an extended period. I was also Chairman of the RPS International Audio-Visual Festival until standing down in 2015. In October 2016 I was elected Vice-President of the Western Counties Photographic Federation, and I'm delighted to serve on the Executive of the federation that my very first camera club belonged to (and still does).
I have lectured at various events throughout the UK, with the occasional journey across the water to Northern and Southern Ireland, the Netherlands and Australia.
I've had some successes at AV Festivals both at home and abroad, with the occasional Gold Medal, Silver medal and category awards. This has led me to achieve an AV-AFIAP in 2012 having built up the required number of acceptances in countries across the world.
I have also been active within the PAGB, achieving DPAGB with a panel of AV sequences in 2005, and MPAGB in 2007, which again was the first one to be awarded with a digitally projected submission. I am also a member of the PAGB Adjudication Panel for Merit Awards in AV. In May 2016 I was delighted to be presented with an APAGB award for meritorious service within PAGB clubs and regions.
I have judged numerous competitions including:
Chair of Jury at the Great Northern AV Festival
Chair of Jury at the RPS International AV Festival
Chair of Jury at the RPS/PAGB National AV Championships
Adelaide International AV Festival in South Australia
NIPA AV Competition in Northern Ireland
Irish Photographic Association AV Competition in Dublin
Leeds AV Group Colour Festival
Bridgend 5-8 Photo Harmony Competition
KCPA AV Competition
East Anglia AV Competition
WCPF AV Competition
IAC Rose Bowl AV Competition
Southern Counties AV Competition
Peter Coles International AV Festival


The meeting starts at 10.30 with attendees’ sequences. This is your chance to show off your work and get some kind, helpful comments on improving it or maybe just saying how wonderful it is. This is always an important and enjoyable part of our day so please bring along your AVs.
