Roger has been involved in photography for over 30 years. He joined the Royal Photographic Society in 1985. He gained some notoriety in 1990 by being awarded three fellowships simultaneously in the Pictorial, Applied and Portraiture sections with hard gritty monochrome images taken in and around Cardboard City in London. Not content to rest on his laurels he then took up Natural History photography and gained his fourth fellowship in 1997 with a panel of fungi prints. He served for 8 years on the Licentiateship panel and currently sits on the A and F Natural History panel. He has been a member of Ipswich and District Photographic Society since taking up photography, and is currently the Club President.
Now that he is retired Roger has started entering national exhibitions again and he believes it is one of the best ways to raise your standard of photography. He looks upon himself as a complete `all rounder` and will tackle any photographic subject, although his main areas of interest still lie in Portraiture, Natural History and more recently Sport , which he has taken up with a passion. Although he still enjoys traditional darkroom work, he now works almost exclusively in digital.
