Largely based on my workshop of the same name, this has nearly 140 images, with subjects ranging from insects to flowers, abstracts to animals.
I talk about the different types of close-up and macro shots we can take, the variety of subjects available, lighting, lenses and accessories, techniques and more.
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, 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.
