Titles for photography talks  2023 - 2025.

I have been giving talks for over a decade and have visited clubs all over the UK. I am now living near Fort William in The Highlands of Scotland but I'm still available to give presentations, distances may be a financial constraint for small clubs but I can stay overnight if you wish. I am still available for Zoom talks which are charged at £65

Titles:

1) Perpetually in Motion. I believe that landscape photographers have to be in tune with the fourth dimension - the passage of time. This talk illustrates all the forces of nature that create motion and change. This is a two part lecture but works for one evening or I can return at another date for part 2. I include 2 audio visual presentations. 

2) Perpetually in Motion Revisited. This will suit associations who have had my Perpetually in Motion 1 and 2 talks. It covers the different forces of nature that generate motion in the landscape with over 200 new and recent images. 

3) Landscape Photography and Focal lengths. From 14mm - 640mm. A look at the potential of different lenses in landscape photography. To include one audio visual presentation.

4) Altered Realities or Does the Camera Lie? The most frequently asked question I get is..."Do you manipulate your images?" The answer is hard to give because a camera changes reality, or shows us things our eyes don't see, before our images get anywhere near Photoshop. This talks illustrates my thoughts and why I think the camera is such a highly creative tool. 

5) Dancing Lights - a decade of aurora hunting. This talk tackles both the technical and creative side of shooting the northern lights. I include an audio visual presentation showing moving aurora in real time using an animation technique. 

6) Patagonia in Winter. If, like me, you find summer landscape photography in the UK less than inspiring then there is always the option to chase winter and head south. Patagonia is a dream destination with steppes, mountains and glaciers to discover. My talk explores locations and wildlife on the Argentinian side of Patagonia and includes an AVI of the El Chalten region and the mighty Fitz Roy Massif. I provide information that would help any adventurous traveller to consider a self-guided trip. Winter has weather challenges, but in my experience it is ideal if you like pristine landscapes all to yourself and enjoy wildlife as well as landscape photography and is far easier than you may think. 

7)  NEW  Studio Botanical  Photography. After many years of running botanical photography workshops and success in recent years in the International Garden Photography of the Year competition I have decided to add a talk on this subject from 2023. Lots of tips and tricks.

Testimonial
"Just a note to thank you for your lecture on “ The Camera Lies”, on behalf of our members I would like to say that from the off you had our attention and maintained that throughout your lecture. 
The subjects covered were extremely interesting and the techniques used and explained were inspirational.
Your lecture gave me and other members, techniques explanations and an insight on how to improve our portfolios (but only after a lot of practice)."  Overton Photographic Club Oct 2021. 

"Well, what an evening we had yesterday!  I just don’t know where to start complementing your images and the excellent commentary you gave with them. Suffice to say, there were many members who expressed great approval, and they’re a hard lot to please sometimes. So, thank you for making my job easier.

 

"I hope you’ve got enough material for an annual invitation! " RK 2023

"Another great night last night at Stafford Camera club with Claire Carter as our speaker if you have never seen her work then make sure you look her up, probably one of the best photographers you will ever see all done in camera.

Thank you Claire." JS 2024
