We have received the following sad message from Brian Coleman.
It is with regret that I have to inform you that Derek Rodway FRPS of Newport Camera Club passed away this week. For those of you who have been around camera clubs for while, you will remember Derek’s wonderful photography, his informative talks and the way he helped so many people with their photography and gaining of honours. He was a genuine and helpful man.Â
When he was no longer able to continue his wildlife photography, after being struck by Parkinson’s Disease, Derek turned his hand to still life and elevated that to an art form.Those of us who saw the stunning glass photographs were inspired to try them ourselves. In my case with Little success in the outcome.
Our thoughts and condolences go to Newport Camera club.Derek will be much missed.
