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. 

Adobe Lightroom demonstration This is a projected demonstration of working with Lightroom, which I have been using since the pre-sale Beta release in 2006. Talk can be customised to deal equally with Import/Library and Development functions or concentrate on the Development side.

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 note
I have suffered too many instances where clubs have not provided basic information such as address of venue, time of meeting etc. Accordingly please post or email written confirmation on the recommended PAGB form which confirms all the details needed. Without this the talk may not happen! You have been warned! 
Please ensure you are familiar with the PAGB guidance on booking - see https://www.nempf.org/judges--lecturers.html
Thank you!
