I use Fujifilm cameras and lenses exclusively and can thoroughly recommend them. I usually have some goodies available at my talks thanks to Fujifilm.
British Landscape in colour and monochrome.
I am available to give talks to photographic societies and other organisations including U3A groups. These are illustrated by projected digital images (PDI) for which the club must provide the digital projector, screen and a cable suitable to connect my Apple MacBook. Talks are regularly updated with new content.
The following talks are 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.

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'. This talk is designed to make relative beginners in photography think about the ways light can be used to enhance their photographs and introduce some mood be it restful or dramatic. 

Urban photography - pdi talk looking at cityscapes, architecture, street photography; in fact pretty much all the opportunities that exist in built up areas.

Flat but not boring - pdi A photo tour of East Anglia

Infrared Monochrome Photography - pdi talk about Infrared Landscape Photography for which I use a converted Fuji camera although pretty much any camera will do.

Talks to photography clubs are charged at PAGB rates, others by agreement. I will normally travel a maximum of 50 miles, depending on time, during the period November to February inclusive. Longer trips and talks at other times are by agreement. 

I bring the talks on a MacBook Pro and present them through Keynote. Clubs must provide a digital projector with cables/adapter to suit the MacBook output - preferably HDMI or Thunderbolt.

Photo Club Programme secretaries please see the PAGB guidelines on booking lecturers. http://www.thepagb.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/booking_lecturers.pdf
Unfortunately I have suffered too many instances where clubs have not provided such basic information as address of venue, time of meeting etc. Judges and lectures give up an evening, sometimes longer, to visit clubs for nothing more than their expenses; this is not a money-making sideline for us.
We should not have to spend further time checking club addresses and opening times, then find the car park, club room etc. without the assistance of those we are seeking to help. Accordingly please post or email written confirmation preferably on the recommended PAGB form or alternatively confirming all the details needed as per that form within three weeks. The date will go in my diary when I receive this and without it I will not come.

Thank you!
