Bill Hutchings

Bill Hutchings (13/11/13 - 02/11/02)

Club Member (June 1966 - November 2002)

Bill was a self taught photographer, starting some years before WWII. 

 

Before joining Mitcham Camera Club in 1966, he was a successfull member of the "Philips of Croydon" work's camera club.

 

Bill was a stallwart of the club for many years and became what is called a master photographer.  Being self taught in his photographic skills he was always ready to pass on his advice to others, especially in the field of darkroom monochrome printing in which he excelled.

 

Although he became less active in participating in competition photography in his later years, his name can be found on many of the club's trophies and even won the Colour Print Championship in 2002. 

 

Sadly his health was failing and passed away in 2002 aged 89 shortly before his 90th birthday.

 

A gallery of Bill's images will be available soon.
