Royal Photographic Society honour for Park Street Camera Club member

A SPRING day at Magdalen College in Oxford so inspired a camera club member that her photo has been chosen for a limited edition book.

Jill Hobson of Park Street Camera Club took the image entitled Fritillary Meadow on a beautiful day in the university city and from thousands of submissions, it has been chosen for Portfolio Two, recently published by The Royal Photographic Society (RPS).

Jill said: “It is a great thrill to be included in this prestigious publication and in such distinguished company.”

3,500 images were submitted for Portfolio Two and only a small proportion were selected. The 240-page book shows current styles and trends within the RPS and the photography of its members.

Park Street Camera Club meets at 8pm every Thursday in St Stephen’s parish centre, Bricket Wood. More details can be found at
