I have been delivering talks to clubs and societies for a number of years, initially starting with amateur radio contesting and more recently a talk on Astrophotography or discovering and photographing the night sky.
Following on from the success of the Astronomy related talk, I had been asked to put some new talks together on some of the subjects and places around the world I have visited in pursuit of photography.
The talks I give are delivered to a variety of audiences and at an appropriate level. From general clubs (including WI and Rotary) to Photographic/Astronomy societies both large or small. I also provide outreach to schools and colleges as I am also a STEM Ambassador.
No two talks are the same as I continually refresh them with new content.
I can provide a projector and laptop (but no screen).
I travel across the whole of the UK and occasionally overseas delivering talks. I am also available at short notice (depending on distance) if your club has received a last minute cancellation.
The dates for my upcoming talks are here
The cost for an evening is £50 (+ fuel costs depending on location)
Please contact me for further information and bookings.
Talks I am currently putting together include …
