I will continue to offer talks via Zoom into 2025.

My recent range of Zoom presentations for photographic clubs includes:

Photo Art - A Zoom talk  that shows the inspiration behind some of my creative photographic artwork, with details of how it is produced. Much of this photographic art is suitable for exhibition or display, and is quite simple to create. This talk is being continuously updated as new work is produced. At present this is my main photo club presentation. I shall give a version of this talk to the Camversation Group in April 2024 (see below)

Abstract Photography - This Zoom talk is still in the development stages and is due to be shown for the first time in October 2024. The intention is that it will be a little bit different in style to "Photo Art". I am planning that it will start with a discussion of what abstract art is and whether there is truly such a thing as abstract photography. It will introduce the work of  some of the great abstract photographers of the past, and then the remainder will concentrate on how to create your own abstract images, including what to photograph and how to compose your work, before going on to develop some examples and ideas that you can try out for yourself.

 

 

 


SPECIAL NOTE: On 15th January 2024 I shall be speaking to the Camversation Group about Abstract Photography. Further details of this will be published on the Camversation web site, and access is available to all.
