A titan not only in the seafood industry but also in the photographic community, Fred was an honourary member of the Photographic Guild of Nova Scotia (PGNS).
Awarded numerous honours for his dedication and service to promoting the art and science of photography, Fred organized workshops, fieldtrips and wrote countless articles on photography. He was an international exhibition judge and presented to camera clubs in Canada, the US and the UK.
At the National level, Fred received an honourary fellowship from the Canadian Association for Photographic Art (CAPA) in 2007 for his many years of dedicated service to photography, both as Vice President East in the Colour Photographic Association of Canada (CPAC) and as Atlantic Zone Director for CAPA which was formed by the merger of CPAC with the National Association for Photographic Art (NAPA).
A Past President for the Photographic Society of America (PSA) (2007-2011), Fred served PSA as Exhibition Standards Chairman (1998-2003), European Affairs Committee Chair (2000-2001), PSA Print Committee Chairman (2012-2014) and Executive V.P. (2004-2007).
Fred received the PSA Stuyvesant Peabody Memorial Award for photographic excellence in 1991 and in 2014 was awarded the PSA Lifetime Achievement Award.
Fred joined PGNS in 1976 and soon became a mainstay of the club, serving on its Executive for over 42 years in numerous roles including President (1983-1985) with his most recent positions being Program (21 years) and Judging (26 years) chairs.
Fred earned over 100 gold medals for Best of Show in international exhibitions and was not only listed in PSA’s Who’s Who as 1st in North America in Colour Slide, but also 1st in the world in Large Colour Print and Monochrome Print on more than one occasion. It is no wonder that Fred won PGNS’s Wambolt-Waterfield trophy for Photographer of the Year 15 times.
He gave generously of his time and expertise, sharing his knowledge of photography at the club and during home evaluation image critique sessions to help other members improve their photography. His leadership, hard work, dedication, conversations about photography and stories will be sorely missed by all of us.
