It is with great regret that I announce the death of John Harvey, who passed away on Wednesday 30th September, aged 92.

John had been ill for some time, though he remained active and always underplayed his condition being the private man that he was.

He was the oldest member of Barry Camera Club and had contributed much to the Club, including a spell as Chairman for 10 consecutive years. John was always an active participant in competitions, and took particular delight in producing prints, often making work which defied photographic norms as he expressed his particular creativity. He was quick to make the transition from film (his first love) to digital and embraced the new technology and what it could offer.

An important part of John’s character was his generosity. He was always one to encourage others and offer advice where it was requested, particularly to newcomers who were making their way. John had immense experience and creativity from which he could draw and was happy to put this to work for Club Members.

Of course, John was also well known beyond the Club both as a Presenter and a Judge. His gentle, thoughtful voice and manner made him a great communicator, backed by a wealth of photographic knowledge and images. He was a member of the Royal Photographic Society and gaining their Associate of The Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) distinction

His loss will be felt deeply by Barry Camera Club and many more besides. May he rest in peace.

We’ve been informed that our former member, Trevor Clayton, passed away on Wednesday 23rd September. Trevor had been a member of Gwynfa for over 30 years. 

He had been diagnosed with acute leukaemia about a year ago and was very much himself right up until the end. He died very peacefully, and at home.

Our thoughts are with his daughter Helena and her family.

Following the success of our informal online advisory service, the PAGB Executive Committee has agreed that it should be established on a permanent basis administered by David Smith. Thanks to the generosity of our volunteer advisers, we now have sufficient advisers on the list to advise at each level of award.

We envisage that each Advisee will receive up to two online sessions. We will leave it up to each Adviser how they give this advice although we suggest that the best method is for each Advisee to send PDIs of their images, 1600px on the horizontal side, to the Adviser, followed up with a telephone conversation with both looking at the images on their own monitor. Each Advisee can request another session once they have undertaken any work suggested on the images, or if they want to bring forward new images.

Those intending to submit in prints may be able to send their prints, or a selection of their prints, to the Adviser to comment. These prints to be returned at the Advisee’s expense and prior agreement with the Adviser.

The system is now ready to receive applications. If you would like advice at CPAGB, DPAGB or MPAGB, go here.

It would be helpful to know in the “extra information” box if you have already applied for an award or if this is a “toe in the water” to ascertain the suitability of your images.

This is a new project, so please be patient as we get it started.

PAGB Guidance – Recording of Online Lectures. http://www.bliciz.icu/pagb-guidance-recording-of-online-lectures Thu, 17 Sep 2020 10:28:08 +0000 http://www.bliciz.icu/?p=27653 This is an edited version of a document which can be downloaded from the PAGB Website library here.

It is an advisory document and does not set out a policy for anyone to follow. It is intended only as guidelines for Clubs to construct their own policy.

Events in 2020 have led to the widespread introduction of on-line meetings. Meetings may be of photographic events, online lectures or judging or may be administrative. This guidance also applies where physical meetings may be recorded by video.

Before recording a meeting the organiser must consider both Copyright and Data protection and Speaker’s Copyright.

Today, in the fast expanding “Zoom-Age”, it has become very easy to record a lecture given remotely but Clubs should be aware that both a judging and a lecture are copyright performances by the speaker.

The copyright issue is not new and this piece was published in PAGB e-news, Issue 42, March 2011.

As the copyright owner, the speaker not only has the right to refuse recording of the event but also has complete control over all terms and conditions of a licence under which the Club might be permitted to use any recording. Apart from anything else, the speaker could charge a fee for a licence.

A meeting must not be recorded by a Club except with the express prior permission of the speaker, including an agreement on the use of any recording.

Photographer’s Copyright – In a competition or exhibition where the images are viewed by the judge in advance, then the judge must delete any stored images after the event. In a competition or exhibition where the images are viewed by the judge in advance, then the judge must delete any stored images after the event.

Data Protection – Clubs must already have a data protection policy (or privacy notice) which covers the personal data which they collect and the reasons for doing so. Clubs must also ensure that they comply with the practices set out in their policy.

The PAGB has published separate guidance about writing a data protection policy.

Recording a meeting either by video or by using the record feature in an on-line meeting system is likely to collect personal data not envisaged in a pre-existing data protection policy. For example, images of the participants, audio of their contributions and, for an on-line meeting, their computer account identity.

It would be possible to adapt a pre-existing data protection policy to cover the extra data collected by a recording. However, it would be open to anyone to decline to take part in a recorded meeting under those conditions. Clubs should consider whether making recordings will limit participation by all members.

Not recording an on-line meeting should mean that no personal data is retained, and that there will be no obvious data protection issues.

It is getting fashionable in some areas for clubs to photograph a lecturer’s prints so as to project them for the benefit of the audience. There are also clubs who ask to video lectures and demonstrations. It has been suggested to your editor that some clubs may have distributed and even sold CDs of such recordings to members of other clubs. I have only second party anecdotal reports and no hard evidence of such a practice, but I would be very annoyed if it happened to me and I am going to be rather more vigilant in the future. I highly recommend that every lecturer and judge should seek assurance from the club that any digital copies of their images will be deleted as soon as the event ends.
