UPDATE: You can see my latest talk schedule here.
This led to a talk last November at Wrekin Arts, which led to an invitation to do my talk at another club Whitchurch, and my name has got around and now quite a few more societies want me to see my talk. I talk for around 90 minutes, split into two halves with a break in between and show around 120 of my prints. I show some of my early prints and explain how and why I got into photographing models, and then show the journey through to more recent work including my successful panels.
This is how I start so that members of the audience know what to expect :)
My next talk is at Smethwick Photographic Society on 30th May, and the Royal Photographic Society have kindly decided to advertise the talk in their latest journal, which has generated quite a bit of interest. So I’ll need to be on top form then :-S
As the phrase goes “unaccustomed as I am to public speaking”, but actually I found I had no problem because I am passionate about my images, and as soon as I put a print up I instinctively know what I want to express, and the audiences have been very receptive and interested in my images.
So here’s a few older images from the talk that you may not have seen on this blog, plus there’s all my well known and more recent images:
And as quite a few people have asked where I am appearing, here’s my current schedule of talks. I shall put these dates in a sidebar to my blog and try to keep it up to date. I think most, if not all, of the venues allow visitors, so feel free to pop along and say hi.

All of these bookings have come from word of mouth, so thank you to all those people who have suggested me as a speaker.
Hopefully I am doing my bit to forward the cause of nude photography in the UK.
Any similarity between these clubs and great locations near to them where I could take pictures of models is purely coincidental ;-)
