This limited edition, high quality, hard bound volume covers "current styles and trends within the Society and the photography of its members ... as well as being a record of the Society at this time". Its 240 pages include portfolios by Honorary Fellows, illustrated articles, selected images from recent Society exhibitions and photographs from recent successful Licentiateship, Associateship and Fellowship applications. Seventy pages are given over to a members' gallery, and among the images published are Paper Flame 2 and Y.

The auction raised over £5,000 to help refit and equip an impressive new library, which is due to open in time for the start of the Autumn term. We wish them every success with this project.

The prints selected will be exhibited on 12 March 2007 at Copythorne Village Hall, Copythorne, Southampton, SO40 2NF.

Particularly pleasing was the fact that Fading Away has been awarded a Selector's Medal, identifying it, in the opinion of one of the three judges, as the best out of nearly 1,500 colour prints submitted.

Woodland Dreams 3
Woodland Dreams 3 was one of the images selected by the panel of judges, which included Roger Reynolds HonFRPS, past president of the RPS. Along with other successful entries it will be exhibited at Bonhams, New Bond Street, London on 27 July.
This is one of a series of photographs of "trees" that can be seen in the Hallway.
The selection comprises:
- Floral Flames I, II, and III all mounted in a single frame;
- Frozen Poppy, Borage, Ivy and Poppies all mounted in one frame;
- Paper Flame 2;
- Marble Tonic.
In a recent competition run by Practical Photography, the UK's best-selling photographic magazine, John's image Turning Back II perfectly fitted the theme of The Human Body. From several thousand entries this was selected as a runner-up.
Turning Back II
Here is what the judges had to say about it: "John's 'body as landscape' take on the theme couples a curvaceous posterior with subtle lighting against a black background and is a great attempt at a very difficult subject. Top marks for effort."
