Popular multi media talks, in person or online
I've been offering my multi media photography-based talks to WI, U3A and similar groups since 2017, and these have been so well received that most of my bookings are now through word of mouth. Always a good sign!
Although talks are always much better in person, the pandemic has shown us that online can work almost as well., so I continue to offer this option if required.
'A photographers journey around the stunning South West Coast Path'
This popular talk is based around my experience of walking all 630 miles of the amazing South West Coast Path, and how this eventually led me to become a photographer, in order to better capture the beauty of our coastline. The talk is a mixture of stories about walking the path, about some of the places that we visit along the way, and the story behind how some of the photos were taken. It is illustrated throughout with many of my best photos of the beautiful Devon Coast (and a few Dartmoor ones too for some variety!), as well as video kindly provided by the South West Coast Path Association.
Cost & payment
All talks are around 45 minutes plus Q&A time, ao around an hour in total. I usually aim to arrive 30 minutes before the talk to ensure any IT issues can be resolved.
Talks are in Microsoft Powerpoint and include sound and video. For in person talks I can provide my own laptop and a projector (with sound) that works for smaller venues, but will need a screen or a white wall to be provided. For larger venues I usually use the built in projection / audio equipment.
The standard price for a talk (whether in person on online) is £60 plus reasonable costs (return travel from Honiton at 40p per mile, plus parking fees if applicable). Payment by cheque or BACS.
