Over the years I have given numerous lectures to many different organisations, from RSPB members groups, local Wildlife Trusts and Photographic Societies to gardening groups and Women’s Institutes. I have a wide variety of subjects which should appeal to many organisations. The emphasis is very much on fun and entertainment.
I give my talks using a digital projector, and can easily accommodate breaks in the middle for refreshments etc.. I ususally bring along a selection of my prints for sale on the evening.
If you are interested in having me give a talk to your group, you can contact me by e-mail by clicking here. My lecture fee for 2014 is £65 and I charge 60p/mile for fuel.
