My Current Lectures

Lectures

Normally all my talks are presented in PowerPoint software with an informal display of actual prints at the end to let members see the finished product. However due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, I can present my lectures in Zoom, but obviously without the showing of the prints.

MINIMALISM IN PHOTOGRAPHY
This is my latest. It explains my own approach to simplicity in photographic images and also my passion for the abstract or the surreal or sometimes the absurd! Suitable for all levels.

MAKING A SILK PURSE FROM A SOW’S EAR
This lecture attempts to show how I try to make a good image from a weak one, or a better image from a mediocre one. Suitable for all levels.

IN MY MIND’S EYE
This talk shows my progression from what is actually in front of my camera to what my mind imagines it to be – and the final result. Suitable for all levels.

KISS – Keep it Simple, Stupid
This one illustrates my liking for simplicity in my photos and is, perhaps, a fore-runner to my current minimalist approach. I try to show that simple images can be strong too. Suitable for all levels.

THE ONES THAT GOT AWAY
A light-hearted (or broken-hearted?) display of some of my favourite images that failed to impress other people, particularly judges or selectors! [i]Perhaps of more interest to people who enter salons and exhibitions.

WHAT MAKES A GOOD PHOTO?
This one was created in response to a request from one of my clubs to make a presentation to members new to the hobby. It makes suggestions about images and what “good” means. Suitable in particular for beginners but may appeal to members of all levels.
