Glyn Edmunds  ARPS EFIAP/s EPSA

We are delighted to welcome the return of Glyn, who was intimately involved with the Southampton International Exhibition for sixteen years, eleven of them as our Chairman. He has been active on the international circuit since 1989 and has accumulated over 1,500 acceptances and a hundred plus awards. This has led to a DPAGB, an EFIAP/s and an EPSA.

A by-product of his work for other photographers was the award of an APSA at the PSA Conference in 2012. This was very special as he was only the eleventh UK photographer to be recognized in this way. Two years later, Glyn was presented with an APAGB by Sue Sibley ARPS who took over from him as Chair of the Southampton International.

Glyn is still a dedicated film user and loves to loiter in towns and cities with an old Leica M6 and a Lomo Fisheye. He shoots most areas of photography, with portraiture, figure studies, photo travel and nature amongst his favourites. Glyn also travels around the world to act as a judge and lecturer.



Chris has been actively involved in club photography since 1979, and confesses to being a 'photo-holic'. A busy national PAGB judge and popular Fotospeed sponsored lecturer, Chris has visited more than 190 different camera clubs, and judged many regional, national and international exhibitions.

He recently gained his Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society, serves on both the Licentiateship and Visual Art (A & F) panels, and provides advice at distinction workshops. Chris holds a Distinction of the PAGB and has received an APAGB award for his services to photography. He has had success and gained awards in international exhibitions when working for his FIAP qualification. Chris is a member of Amersham Photographic Society, and supports two workshop ventures – Photo Knowledge, and Spirit & Vision Landscape Photographic Workshops. His website can be viewed at


Dr Anne Sutcliffe  FRPS EFIAP PPSA

Anne is best known as a creative photographer. Recently however, she has broadened her horizons to include environmental portraiture, nature, close up and landscape photography. She lectures and judges all over the UK and is a member of the Fotospeed Lecture Service. More rarely, Anne has judged and lectured in Ireland, Holland and the USA.

She is an elected member of the London Salon of Photography and the Eyecon Group. On behalf of the RPS, Anne served for several years on the LRPS Distinction Panel, latterly as a chairperson before being promoted to the Visual Art (now divided into Creative and Pictorial) A & F Distinction Panel. From 2011 to 2015 she was an elected member of the RPS Advisory Board. Most recently Anne has been an active member of the Photographic Society of America's Panel Recognition Committee, helping to introduce new distinctions to the PSA that bear a strong resemblance to RPS Distinctions.


Roger Hance  FRPS DPAGB

Roger has been involved in photography for over 30 years. He joined the Royal Photographic Society in 1985 and 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, Roger 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 RPS Licentiateship panel and currently sits on the A and F Natural History panel as Vice Chairman. Roger believes that entering national exhibitions 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.


Jill Pakenham  FRPS DPAGB

Some years ago Jill was shown a photograph of a hawkmoth, which triggered the start of more serious natural history photography, and an enduring love of photographing moths and other insects. This eventually led to successful applications in the Nature category of the RPS Associateship and Fellowship Distinctions, with panels of insect photographs.

Her motivation stems primarily from the wildlife to be found in her local area, but she also enjoys exploring different points of view, wherever she may be with the camera. Jill has exhibited successfully in national and international exhibitions with acceptances and awards across a wide range of subjects, though predominantly with natural history images.



Mike is a full time wildlife photographer specialising in birds and mammals. Although he gets to travel to foreign lands a great deal, his main love is British wildlife. He gets far more satisfaction photographing humble wrens and chaffinches than exotic parrots in distant rain forests.

He has four interests in life: wildlife, photography, travel and computers. In today's digital age they all combine very well and in an ideal world he would spend all his time travelling and photographing wildlife. Mike gives many talks during the winter months to camera clubs and nature societies.
