This talk is suitable for all types of organisations from camera clubs to U3A groups. I love photographing in cities and with London on my doorstep I have a great subject to shoot at anytime of the year. I also love night photography and I don’t think it gets much better than shooting cityscapes at night. This talk looks at all the things you need to consider when shooting in a city. From how to make architecture look it’s best; to taking people pictures and of course shooting at night.
The length of this talk is quite flexible. It can run between one and two hours. I am more than happy to take questions at the end of the presentation.
This talk is print-based, I will bring prints and easel. If you have a print stand, that would be helpful but it’s not essential.
I mainly talk in the Essex area but also travel into Suffolk and Kent. If your group is based a bit further afield, it might be worth considering adding a half day location workshop before the talk in the evening for your members.
I would be guided by your members in terms of location because local knowledge plays a part for any location shoot. It may be you have a great patch of woodland nearby or a fantastic stretch of coastline we can work to capture at its best. As with all my location courses I can pitch the tuition to the level of experience of the photographers present. I would certainly be teaching a blend of the technical and artistic sides of photography. From basic or advanced exposure techniques to the use of composition and light and colour for example.
The cost of a half-day camera club photography workshop for up to ten participants is £ 275.00 which I would then follow with a talk to your camera club in the evening. The price for the camera club talk would be £50.00
My normal fee for giving a talk is £50.00 plus 45p per mile for travelling expenses. Please see this review from our recent visit to Leigh-on-Sea Camera Club:
“A big thank you for an excellent evening on Thursday. As usual, a lot of interest and a lot of learning. Your talk works well; good structure and well-chosen examples. We are fortunate to have London within easy reach with its many and varied photo opportunities. The trick, of course is to find that unique angle which you demonstrated superbly with many of your shots. As you said, wildlife is not so accessible but cities by day and by night are there just waiting for us all the time”.
