Honorary Life Members

Our club can award four honorary life memberships at any one time in order to recognise and honour those members who have worked hard to support the growth and life of our club.

Past members who were awarded life membership include:

  • Fred Drakeford
    Fred was awarded his honorary life membership in 1987 in recognition of his unfailing support of our club. Fred was a founding member and still holds the record for the longest serving President of our club. He also served on the committee in other capacities such as being the Newsletter Editor and the starter of the Black and White Group. His loyalty and enthusiasm for all things photographic is legendary, especially his love of taking portraits, landscapes, macros (or close-ups) and black and white photographs. Fred died in 2006.
  • Kath McKay
    Kath was awarded her honorary life membership in 1995 in recognition of her tireless work in support our club. Kath devotedly served the club in the difficult position of Competition Steward for many years. Kath has had numerous national and international photographic successes and was recognised by the Australian Photographic Society by being awarded its Associateship honour in 1990. Kath died in 2006.
  • Fred Schult
    Fred was awarded his honorary life membership in 1989 in recognition of his support of our club. Fred joined our club in 1967 and served for many years on the committee, holding the position of Treasurer for more than ten years. Fred initially took slides, but then branched into black and white photography with landscapes being his favourite subject. Fred died in 1995.
  • Joan Williams
    Joan was awarded her honorary life membership in 1989 in recognition of her tireless work in support of our club. Joan joined us in the early 1960s and served for many years on the committee, including holding the position of Secretary. Joan had no particular preference for subject matter or type of photography as long as the composition was ‘simple’. In fact, Joan had an excellent ability to create something interesting from everyday objects and situations. Joan died in February 2009.
  • Ralph Petty
    Ralph was awarded his honorary life membership in 1990. Ralph, along with Fred Drakeford, is a founding member and over the years he served on the committee as our president, as well as 15 years (over two stints) as our Treasurer, making him the longest serving Treasurer to date. Ralph’s sense of humour and his still life, table top, hand-painted photographs with quirky titles is legendary, as is his photographic skill. Ralf died in September 2019.

Current members who have life membership include:

  • Lois Thompson
    Lois was awarded her honorary life membership in 2007 in recognition of her dedication and continuing support for our club. Lois joined our club six months after it started, but we still consider her to be a ‘founding’ member of our club. Lois’ enjoyment in photography is discovering and capturing that illusive moment, although she equally values the friendships and connections she has made with other members of our club. Lois tirelessly looks after us all by ensuring that supper is ‘up to standard’, and has served for many years on the committee, including holding the position of Secretary.
  • Kay Mack

 Kay was awarded her honorary life membership in 2009 in recognition of her continuing  support of the club and her many years of service. Kay joined the club in  1976 and the committee in 1977 where she served for  sixteen years, during which time she held the positions of President, Treasurer, and Newsletter Editor. Kay has a great interest in contemporary photography, and with her keen eye and imagination  she can see beyond  the obvious and capture unique images
