Below is a list of the basic talks that I run. When you enquire about a talk I will ask for any particular interests, how technical you would like it to be and any particular phobias (for example spiders or snakes) so that I can tailor make the talk to suit your group or association. All my talks are based around the following basic outlines, include a slideshow and can have as much or as little technical detail as you require, the talks can be adapted to be either 45 minutes or 90 minutes (with a break half way through). I am more than happy to custom write a talk and I also have a talk that is all on my latest work and projects, please just ask if you would like more details on these.
The first three include all the technical details for all the photos and I will talk about how they were taken, I also now include a bit about post processing, images that haven't worked and why and an open Q&A session at the very end.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and clubs not being able to meet in person, I am able to offer these talks as an online presentation in the same format as they would be in person (fee still applies but there are no travel expenses), if you are interested in booking one of these talks for your club please do get in touch.
The Forgotten Little Creatures talk has some technical details but doesn't include the post processing and images that haven't worked section.
Wonderful World of Macro
This talk is completed dedicated to macro photography, but this is no ordinary macro photography talk, it focuses on creative macro photography in the field. I cover what macro photography is, equipment needed, challenges and how to overcome them as well as the little extras that I recommend carry in your bag at all times.
Nature and Wildlife Photography
Looks at my nature and wildlife photography work including macro photography, birds, mammals and some landscapes and covers how I took the shot including lighting and composition and how to be more creative when photographing nature.
Forgotten Little Creatures
This talk covers my Forgotten Little Creatures Project and brings together creative photography, technical details, stories behind the images and also some interesting fun facts about the subjects.
