I am an approved Scottish Photographic Federation judge, and in recent years I have judged many photographic competitions across Scotland.   I aim to keep my competition judging to a manageable number of  events in future.  

My range of presentations for photographic clubs includes:

Use of Layers in Photoshop -  (An introduction to the use of layers in producing creative images. This presentation is accompanied by a series of "recipes"). This talk was last given in 2016.

Photo Art (Formerly Twenty Twenty Vision)  - (A Zoom talk  starting with the work in my latest exhibition, "PhotoArt", which ran from July to October 2019, then moving on to more recent work produced during the Coronavirus lockdown.  and up to the present. This talk is being continuously updated as new work is produced.

Still Life Backgrounds - Construction Methods  - (A PowerPoint presentation for photo clubs first given via Zoom in July 2020).

NOTE: I do not charge a speaker's fee. 

Regrettably, I am unable to permit recordings to be made of my talks. As I am not charging a fee, I do not allow tickets to be sold for my presentations. 

Instead of a fee, I invite clubs to make a charitable donation to the MS Society
