This talk is suitable for all type of organisations from camera clubs to U3A groups. It covers all aspects of wildlife photography from equipment needed to the best photography techniques required to “get the shot”, to finding the wildlife you want to photograph and getting close enough to actually photograph it. The talk is illustrated with a wide range of wildlife photographs showing a variety of ways to photograph the animals we share our planet with. I have been taking wildlife photographs for many years and the feeling you get when you capture a rare moment in an animal’s life is fantastic. Hopefully this talk will encourage other photographers to have a go at this fabulous branch of photography.
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.
