His service to the Society and to photography in New Zealand, as exhibitor, lecturer, judge, and on committee were outstanding. He was president of the Society, an international exhibitor and had a great liking for and expertise in landscape photography.
Margaret Macdiarmid, who became a member in 1959, also contributed generously to the success and friendliness of the Society through exhibiting, lecturing, judging and on committee. She, too, served as president, exhibited internationally and had a great liking for and expertise in landscape photography.
