For the 2022-3 season and for the foreseeable future I shall not be offering in-person visits to camera clubs, and I offer my apologies for that. I shall however continue to offer on-line talks via Zoom where there is a demand.

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 Zoom presentations for photographic clubs includes:

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. At present this is my main presentation.

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 revised in 2021.

Still Life Backgrounds - Construction Methods  - (A PowerPoint presentation for photo clubs first given via Zoom in July 2020). This talk is a bit shorter than my Photo Art talk, and was originally designed as a follow-on to that.

 


NOTE: I do not charge a fee for speaking.

I invite clubs to consider making a charitable donation to the MS Society. This is entirely at your discretion. One easy way of donating however is via my JustGiving page at:-

Alternatively the MS Society may be reached by writing to them at MS Society, 372 Edgware Road, London. NW2 6ND or via their own web site.
