Photographers gather to toast legendary tutor

Scores of press photographers who were taught by legendary photojournalism tutor Paul Delmar are to hold a special thank-you party this month to mark his retirement.

Paul stood down as leader of the press photography course at Norton College, Sheffield earlier this year after three decades.

More than a thousand students passed through his hands during that time, many of whom still work in the newspaper industry.

Now some of them are set to stage a unique reunion bash in Sheffield as a tribute to one of the most revered journalism training figures in the land.

The event being organised through the Paul Delmar Fan Club page on Facebook

Organiser Eddie Keogh said: “We want this to be a truly memorable occasion for Paul and want as many people to attend as possible. Remember one of Paul’s favourite quotes? – ‘ No Excuses!’

“Paul is a truly remarkable person who has helped so many people in their career throughout the years. Lets make this a party that no one will ever forget.”

The event takes place at the George and Dragon pub in Mosborough, Sheffield on Thursday 23 September from 6.30 onwards.

    Surely the bash should be at The Norton, opposite the College? That was Delmar’s ‘office’ for years!
