My tuition has been deeply impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. See the current situation here:
Largely based on Daniel's workshop of the same name, this has over 130 images, with subjects ranging from insects to flowers, abstracts to animals. Covering the different types of close-up and macro shots we can take, the variety of subjects available, lighting, lenses and accessories, techniques, focus stacking, and more. Ideally suited to camera clubs.
This is an especially popular talk of Daniel's, as it covers equipment, such as lenses and accessories we can use to get close-up shots, techniques for getting macro images, the use of flash, focus-stacking, choice of aperture, and more. Aimed at enthusiastic amateurs, and more experienced photographers with a desire to expand the photos they can take.
This is an interactive talk, I encourage questions and comments, which works well at camera clubs as it sparks discussion, rather than simply being a slideshow.
This talk proves especially popular with camera clubs, but most audiences will gain greater knowledge of close-up photography, as well as a better understanding of what's around us.
A talk costs £60, plus travelling expenses at 45p/mile.
Just get in touch through my contact page, it's probably best by email as you can easily let me know dates you have available. Feel free to give me a ring instead though, and we can chat through which talk would be best for you if you haven't yet decided.
Pretty much anyone, although some are maybe better suited to Camera Clubs rather than the average WI meeting. However, that's maybe doing 'non-photographers' a disservice, as my Ten Top Tips talk went down a storm at a local U3A group recently.
I bring a laptop, projector, and extension lead. and can bring a screen too if required, so the only thing I really need is a table or projector stand. If you have a screen I could use, that just makes it a little easier for me.
I give talks to all sorts of organisations; Camera Clubs, Local Wildlife Groups, U3A Groups, anywhere that wants an interesting and effective talk really.
I mainly cover Essex, but have taken bookings from Kent, Suffolk, Hertfordshire, London, Norfolk, Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire, and the West Midlands. I haven't been to Sussex with a talk yet. That should be my next county I think...
I normally keep going until everyone's asleep, then creep out very quietly...
However, if you require a specific length, it's normally somewhere between 1 ½ to 2 hours, so they fit nicely with a Camera Club meeting, and I can adjust the talk to accommodate your particular meeting times.
Send us your questions and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Brilliant teacher and photographer
"I attended a macro photography talk that Daniel was presenting, and wow what can I say. I was blown away by his talent, friendliness and knowledge. Daniel’s talk inspired me to buy a macro lens and I’ve been following his work for years." Michael W M McAdam via Trustpilot
Daniel came and gave a talk
"Daniel came and gave a talk on his top ten tips to the Limebrook U3A photography group. All members commented on how interesting and helpful the tips were and how it has inspired them to try some new techniques in the future." Graham Churchill via Trustpilot
Great Camera Club Speaker, Witty and Informative
"Daniel delivered a great talk, amusing and informative, with plenty of audience participation. Felt inspired to get out with my camera again, as did other club members, so much so, at half time I was asked to rebook him for next season. Thank you, look forward to the next talk!" Jane - Malling Photographic Society via Trustpilot
A great evening at RDPS with Daniel
"A great evening at RDPS with Daniel. He gave a very informative and instructional talk, with a lot of enthusiasm and energy. Will be asking Daniel to come back again next year." Richard Kenny via Trustpilot
Very approachable friendly guy
"Daniel has been to Clacton Camera Club to give talks on more than one occasion. He is a very approachable and easy to get on with guy. He obviously has a great passion for photography and is very inspiring, this most definitely comes across in his talks. His images are brilliant and he shares his knowledge of how to get that extra special shot." Hilary Knight via Trustpilot
