THE WORLD OF A WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER (26th October 2020)
This entertaining lecture spans 35 years of photography and takes us to 5 continents. The questions I am most often asked are about are my `favourites`! What are the pictures you are most pleased with â€“ what is the best place you have visited â€“ which subjects do you most enjoy photographing? These are impossible questions to answer because ones opinion constantly changes. How can you possibly compare the Queensland tropical rain forest with the desert of Utah; or compare the delicate but vibrant sunbirds with the power and majesty of a bald eagle? It may be impossible but, in this lecture, I am going to try! Working my way through my commissions over a span of 30 years, I will bring you right up to date with my latest and most exciting project.
PAINTBRUSH TO PIXEL (2nd November 2020)
My creative pathway from my roots as an equine portrait artist through to a successful fine art photographer.
Initially my photography was to fuel the need for good clear reference images for working at my easel. This dynamic began to change as clients requested prints as often as paintings, so accordingly, my respect for the camera grew. I joined a Camera Club and my journey took me through LRPS, CPAGB, LMPA, AFIAP and is now resting just above a BPE3*.
My artwork is now more digital based and hangs in galleries across the UK and Europe, join me on this insightful journey from paintbrush to pixel.
