2 of our club members have recently had interviews/articles posted on the RPS Documentary Group In Focus Friday. Stephen Marsh has
had his photo featuring the “Ann Summers” shop published here and Richard Ryder has also had his photo of “The Bognor Busker” featured here – part of a photographic essay seen at the Spring Exhibition and panels competition evening earlier in the season.
I’m delighted to announce that there were two more distinctions for the club at the PAGBAwards 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!
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 Rocchiccioliwho 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!

The Focus Group Exhibition is on at the Assembly Room starting Saturday. It would be great if some of the muscular members of the Club could give us a hand getting the screens, etc. transported to town.
The schedule is:
– Thursday, 3:00PM at Tangmere to load up the screens, etc.
– Friday, 8:30 AM at the Assembly Room to unload the trailer and set up.
Support has always been great whenever the Club has an exhibition and it would be appreciated if it continued for this occasion.
David Plummer is a passionate, experienced and respected wildlife expert, photographer and conservationist. His images are featured in leading wildlife publications, he advises internationally on eco-tourism and is a proactive conservationist within the UK.
David’s interests in wildlife and photography began early in childhood – his earliest memory is of studying woodlice aged just two. At eight, he bought his first secondhand SLR camera and was delighted when he managed to get a full-frame shot of a blue tit at nest.
He only takes pictures of wild animals in their natural habitat. Before photographing any new subject, he carries out extensive research and it is this, combined with his in-depth knowledge and endless patience that are the essential framework for his breathtaking images.
In an interview with Sussex Life back in 2016, he talked about his love for Sussex which has everything – the Downs, the sea, woodlands. He talked about how he spent weekends in Sussex and honed his skills photographing flowers and butterflies, staying
in a campsite at the end of the road where he now lives with his garden fence literally on the South Downs National Park boundary. Becoming a volunteer photographer for the Sussex Wildlife Trust in 2002 was a turning point for him in becoming a wildlife photographer and he still works closely with the Trust – taking photographs in their reserves and running courses for them at their Wood Mills centre and also from Scrag Copse. All of which stands him in good stead for this presentation all about Wildlife
Photography in West Sussex.
