Ken Monkhouse

Ken Monkhouse died on the 16th of January 2012, aged 73.

He was one of the three Founder members of the Nottingham Outlaws Photographic Society, and its first Chairman.

During his time with the Outlaws he also held a number of other positions on the committee, namely Secretary, Programme Secretary, Vice Chairman and Members Secretary. It was he who found our first venue and our current venue, he coordinated our marketing media, collected and delivered our images for battles with other clubs and for exhibitions, and manned the first exhibitions that we held.
He played a major part in setting out the policies, competition rules and club programme, forging links with other photographic clubs, securing our acceptance into NEMPF, manufacturing the clubs first annual trophies and the individual (keepsake) trophies. In short, Ken was instrumental in setting the basis of the club that we know today.
He leaves behind two daughters, Melanie and Keren, son Ian, and granddaughter Molly to whom we would like to convey our sincerest and heartfelt condolences.

He was an inspiration to many people, and a lovely man. He will be sorely missed and is a great loss to our Society.
