I give informative talks and AV presentations to camera clubs and photography events, speaking about my life and journey into photography. Every talk is a unique, first-hand account as I go into the details of the biology and geography of each slide that is presented. I aim to show a side of Africa that is not often seen on your average safari holiday as you race around the landscape in a 4×4 hoping to get the next big shot. Being on safari is a once in a lifetime opportunity and with so much to absorb on the journey we can often forget what our guide has said; I give that back in my talks on Africa.
I also give detailed talks on Raw vs JPEG, Photoshop and processing your images. I know that there are millions of tutorials on this subject, but I try to simplify this and get to the root of the confusion of whether to shoot in one form or another. This informative demonstration will give you the opportunity to ask the questions that you need to on the night and help you decide which method will suit you best. If you feel you need a more personalised approach after this, I also offer 1:1 tuition tailor-made for you needs.
My current list of talks are:
Visions of The Untamed
A Professional Guides View
RAW vs JPEG

I find it an honour to be asked to judge any competition or exhibition. Being a judge has opened my eyes and given me a whole new perspective on the photography world. I have a unique style of judging, looking at each photo that is in front of me individually from a creative and technical perspective whilst also trying to visualise the story it is telling. This allows me to judge each image impartially and on its own merits. Any comments I provide are constructive, with the aim of improving the image and giving the photographer another perspective on their work.
