20 years on the lecture circuit

Published January 24th, 2012

I have been giving talks for many years now on nature and wildlife photography. Infact, my first one was some 20 years ago to the Swale Group of the Kent Wildlife Trust. Since then I have, easily, given in excess of 400 to all manner of clubs and societies throughout England in the autumn and winter months, ranging from gardening societies and WI’s to the RPS and National Trust.

A week in The Peaks....well, almost!

Published January 1st, 2012

Last October I spent close to a week under canvas photographing the Dark Peak region of the Peak District in Derbyshire. I love this area and have held 5 workshops here over the last 18 months. The weather was a mix of sunshine and cloud, cold and mild. Perfect for landscape and woodland photography!
