John Royle has been our devoted and hard working Chairman and Competition Secretary for more years than I care to remember. He takes his time before releasing the shutter thoughtfully creating a pleasing composition that can be admired. John has studied many classical photographers and artists and learned from them. He’s developed his own unique style and if you take the time to explore his work you can read so much more in his photographs. I think he’s one of our most under rated photographers often miss understood by some judges.
His experience has been invaluable to our society and he makes time to support and encourage all members to enjoy and improve their photography. John has now stepped down as Chairman which creates an opportunity for someone else to steer the society into the future.
