Photography Talks

I have a presentation which I have adapted into two separate photography talks – one of 45 minutes and one at at 90 minutes. The longer one is aimed at camera clubs where the main focus of the evening is on the talk. The shorter one is probably better for WI meetings.

I am comfortable presenting and interacting with an audience and can tailor my output to the occasion. If you would prefer a showcase of the beautiful southwest of the UK, then I can do that. Complete with amusing anecdotes of when it all went wrong, and sometimes accidentally right.

If you would prefer something a little more technical, no problem. I can use my photos to demonstrate compositional and exposure techniques. I can also give hints and tips on planning a photography shoot and explain techiques used in the field.

Perhaps you want some post-processing advice. While I use Photoshop and Lightroom to process my images, I can cover the basics, common to most photo editing programs to show you how to produce images with impact – and guide you away from common pitfalls. You are the audience – I want you give you what you want.

Whatever you choose, I can guarantee an interesting and enjoyable time, but don’t just take my word for it. Here’s a recent review:

Bruce brought along an interesting selection of his photographs to demonstrate how to compose a photograph for best effect and to highlight features in the landscape … it was a very interesting evening with many questions being asked … we did admire his photos but I’m not sure many of us would like the early starts to reach the locations!”

Of course, we live in interesting times and COVID has changed and frustrated the way that we socially interact. As I use Microsoft PowerPoint, it is easy to present my photography talks in a virtual session over Zoom or Skype. Please get in touch if this interests you.

So, what are you waiting for? If you are the programme secretary for a social club, WI, camera club, or any simiar organisation, please use my contact form to get in touch – you won’t regret it.
