From his joining of Brighton Camera Club in 1992 through to becoming President in 1998 and beyond his elevation in photographic society.
His need to solidify his life in photography led to his application for RPS fellowship with two successful panels (only one was required) a misunderstanding with costs we understand!
His need for competition led too FIAP and international competitions and his list of successful images was endless, some from Africa, some from Belfast, some staged, some because the image worked. However it was clear that successful images are sometimes teased out of confused compositions or detailed photographs and even one from an extremely under exposed shot!
Bob has spent time with the Maasai peoples of Kenya and has dedicated his time to a charity to improve childrens education and the development of a school. His photography is both rewarded by images of the Maasai people who have befriended him and the great African continent.
The lecture was definitely a lesson in competitive perseverance, why limit yourself to local competitions, investigate FIAP and why not try and take on the world!
