Honours received by members

ARPS successes

I’m delighted to be able to tell you that both Lynne Owen and Tony Baverstock have  achieved their Associateships with the Royal Photographic Society, a real accomplishment.

They will both admit that one of the hardest parts of gaining and ARPS is that the panel – of 15 images –  has to have a theme.  That the highest standards of photography are required is a given, but finding and delivering a themed panel is a real challenge.

Tony had considered all sorts of projects, and then one day was just crushing a drinks bottle for the recycling when he saw how beautifully the light played  on the plastic.  From that, he created a superb panel of black and white abstract images, as you can see from the examples below.

Lynne too had tried out a few ideas – and you might have seen something of her eventual successful panel at North Mundham earlier this year.  A truly creative idea around windows that really open to reveal the interior – and again you can see a couple of these below.

It’s congratulations to both Lynne and Tony, both awarded ARPS in the Fine Art category. One with a deceptively simple idea, that required first rate mono photography and printing skills; the other with a more complicated concept that also took some construction skills!

MORE DISTINCTION SUCCESSES FOR PAGB GROUP MEMBERS

TWO MORE DISTINCTIONS FOR PAGB GROUP MEMBERS

I’m delighted to announce that there were two more distinctions for the club at the PAGB Awards for Photographic Merit Adjudication in Chorley recently. Two members of the PAGB group were successful in gaining their PAGB Awards.

JEFF OWEN was awarded a CPAGB

PETER ROCCHICCIOLI was awarded a DPAGB

These are very highly desired distinctions and very difficult to achieve indeed, requiring a very high standard of photography. Congratulations to these two talented photographers. Below are some sample images from their successful panels.

Above is Jeff’s panel for his CPAGB. He achieved high marks in the adjudication and gained his distinction with plenty to spare!

London Salon Medal for Glyn Edmunds!

I’m delighted to announce that Glyn Edmunds has won a Salon Medal at this year’s London Salon of Photography. Over the years only four Chichester Camera Club members have achieved this rare distinction, Glyn now makes this number up to five! Congratulations!

In addition to his medal Glyn has had two images accepted at the salon, the maximum number from any contributor. This is a terrific achievement in a salon where only a very small number of the submitted images are accepted for exhibition.

Glyn is one  of our regular advisors at the PAGB Group and we are all very proud of his achievement. 

 

LONDON SALON SUCCESS FOR PETER ROCCHICCIOLI

In addition to Glyn’s success congratulations are also due to PAGB Group member Peter Rocchiccioli who had an image accepted at The London Salon. This is Peter’s third time having an acceptance at The London Salon, so well done Peter!

Awards for Ann and Sheila

We were delighted to see Ann McDonald and Sheila Tester both receive awards at the Club meeting on Thursday 21st February – and to have Peter Rocchiccioli present them in his role as President of the Southern Counties Photographic Federation. A very ‘well done’ to both!

Sheila Tester, receiving the SCPF Roll of Honour, by the Federation president Peter Rocchiccioli. A distinction which she very well deserved for the work she has put into Chichester Camera Club over ten years, and before that was a member of Marwell Photographic Group. She has served on Chichester’s  Management Committee many times, currently as Southern Counties Federation Representative,  and is also an active member of the Selection Committee. Sheila is also of course absolutely vital is the success of our Annual and North Mundham Exhibitions where she is our catering supremo. A very well deserved award to Sheila for all her contributions to club photography.

Ann McDonald won the best portrait individual award at the PAGB GB cup for the open projected images for her Portrait of a Lady, and is shown here receiving the award from by the SCPF President Peter Rocchiccioli. This is a great achievement by Ann as there were only eleven awards given nationally and this was also the only one within the SCPF. Many congratulations to Ann for this splendid recognition.
