Responsibilities: CameraTalk, Help sheets, Print Circles
Rodney was successfully elected to Council in May 2013, and his portfolio includes responsibility for Canon Online, NZ Camera, Help Sheets and Print Circles.
Rodney joined the Southland Photographic Society in 1983. Since 1986 he has held a number of Club committee positions including Treasurer and President.
He attended his first PSNZ Southern Regional convention in 1987 and his first National Convention in 1993 at Greymouth.
Over the years his organisational skills and business acumen have been a valuable contribution to a number of organising committees – for the International Exhibition of Photography in 1987 and PSNZ Southern Regional conventions in 1990, 2000 and 2008. He was also a key member of the organising committee for the highly successful 2012 National Convention in Invercargill.
He says his interest in photography began when he was ‘about 10 years old’ when he was given a box brownie and a roll of film.
A successful electrician and businessman, Rodney started his first business, with his wife Trudy, in 1988 which has now significantly grown.
