Photography:    Richard (Tommy) Campion

copyright-RTC-in-the-shallowsOlder People Speak Out would particularly like to acknowledge the generous permission granted by retired Gold Coast news photographer, Richard (Tommy) Campion (pictured) for the use of his stunning photographs that feature throughout this website.

One of many children who were bullied and abused in a church orphanage in his early life, Tommy has more recently been a magnificent champion for others – like himself – who bravely gave evidence to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Abuse.

Tommy continues to seek justice for himself and for others,, many of whom are now themselves in their advancing years.

Through all that, he continues to take many wonderful photographs each day, regardless of where in the world he might be. When asked whether he could help with this project, his immediate reply was that OPSO were welcome to use his images for this website.
