Macro and Garden Photography

This talk  is suitable for all type of organisations from camera clubs to U3A groups. It starts with how to photograph people’s gardens at their best. Looking at composition, the use of light and colour and the best photography techniques for garden photography. The second part of the talk concentrates on close-up and macro photography. What are the best techniques to use and what equipment do you need for this type of photography? In fact for close-up photography generally no extra equipment is needed. The thing about this type of photography is that great subjects are all around , you only have to step out of the back door to find something to photograph. Fantastic!

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.

If you would like to book this talk for your club or group please either email via the “contact us” page or you can give me a call on (01245)323519
