Talks

Form time to time I give talks. These are available for;

* photographic societies
* Women's Institute branches
* and any other suitable organisation

These are illustrated by projected digital images (PDI) and the following is currently available;

British Landscapes in colour and mono - an evening's tour around Britain, get your juices flowing for trips to the beautiful areas offered by our country. Lots of tips on techniques for landscape photography; hopefully we will all learn something.

Digital Monochrome Methods - pdi talk with examples of my work and projected work through of some of the methods I employ.

A pdf of some techniques that may be helpful was available to download but a change to the hosting of the site on 1st November 2016 has unfortunately lost this feature so please drop me an email or use the contact form and I will send it to you.

Light is Everything - pdi talk which starts off looking at the work of Belgian pictorialist Leonard Missonne who said "Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most commonplace and ordinary subjects. The object is nothing; light is everything." We then go on to look at many different kinds of light and hopefully see there is no such thing as 'bad light'.

Adobe Lightroom Demonstration - a demonstration of Adobe Lightroom designed to get those photographers not using it to convert to, what is in my opinion, the best piece of photo software available.

Talks to photography clubs are charged at PAGB rates, other organisations - please call me. To avoid conflict with dates when I may be away on a shoot I now take bookings only during November to February inclusive. 

I bring the talk on a MacBook Pro and have an HDMI Cable - clubs are expected to provide a digital projector with an HDMI socket or the standard 15 pin VGA cable.

I will travel a maximum of 50 miles each way. Preferred dates are November through to February so as not to intrude into the main "Shooting season."

Programme secretaries please note: Please post written confirmation (preferably on the recommended PAGB form), without which the talk will not happen! You have been warned!

Comments from Clubs:
Hello Bill,
As I drove home last, I thought I must send you a note of thanks, for a thoroughly entertaining and
inspirational evening. Well, it seems my friends and colleagues have done the job for me! It's only 10:00 am
and already I've had a flood of emails saying how much they enjoyed your talk.
Here are some of the comments:-
"I don't think I shall become a landscape photographer any time soon (already too many
camper vans on the road) but what a refreshing view on photography shown by Bill last
night. He seemed to confront and break all the conventions to great effect. Also what a
genuinely nice guy he was."
"Bill is an engaging speaker with a refreshing attitude to his photography.
His images were pretty good too!!"
"Completely agree that he was an excellent choice of speaker. Some stunning images, all
from the UK, and within reach of all of us."
I couldn't have put it better myself.
So, thank you very much - from all of us at Stratford Photo Group - and I wish you and your
wife a very Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year. I hope 2016 presents you with many
more opportunities to produce beautiful photographs.
Thanks and Best Regards,

Hi Bill,
It was a great talk you gave us last night. Your obvious enthusiasm for landscapes was
infectious and the quality of the images superb. I’ve rarely had such effusive comments
expressed to me by our members about a lecturer. You’ve made a lot of friends in Lutterworth PS and we hope you will come again.
I’ll keep in touch,
