I offer talks about many aspects of photography, from the technical to the creative, so please contact me if you're interested in booking a talk for your camera club or organisation. I am passionate about helping others enjoy the natural world and learn to express their photographic ideas more effectively, so my talks are of an educational nature rather than being a slideshow with narration. Below are details of the talks I offer.

With over 15 years' experience using photoshop as a graphic designer and photographer I can also offer tuition for your camera club.

Talk 1: Welcome to my Outdoor Office

The first talk I developed, this is a broad introduction to my world of landscape photography. I cover my backstory of learning photography and developing a business as a landscape photographer. I explain the kit I use and some of the tricks/tips I've learnt to take effective photographs using it. I also break down many of my most successful images, sharing the work-in-progress images that were part of the development of a final image.

Running time: 2 hours approx

Talk 2: Four Seasons in One Day

A virtual tour of the UK's four seasons, exploring how the light, landscape and weather of each season affect the kinds of images that can be taken. The talk touches on technical details behind my photographs, as well as practical advice on how to approach similar locations. I also include advice on using apps such as The Photographers' Ephemeris and Photopills.

Running time: 2 hours approx

Talk 3: Seeing Shapes

Composition is one of the hardest parts of landscape photography to master, yet it's also probably the easiest to practise at any time of day. This talk explores composition in a creative and flexible way than the traditional rules-based approach featured in popular literature and Youtube TOP TIPS videos. I discuss concepts such as gesture, echoes and ideas from graphic design that influence all forms of visual communication.

Running time: 2 hours approx

Talk 4: Work in Progress

Is it ever possible to say one has mastered a skill? I very much see my photography as a constant work in progress, learning from every photograph I take. Rather than show a polished and finished set of photographs, in this talk I show a mixture of failures and successes, and delve into the key lessons I have learnt from each.

Running time: 2 hours approx
