Over the last few years I have been asked by Camera Clubs, Nature Societies, and various other organisations if I do presentations of my work. To be honest this is something that I have not been confident in doing previously, mainly as I did not believe there would be enough interest in my work….. But I have been pleased to discover there is a lot of interest and the Presentations I have given over the last year have been very well received, and have all resulted in great feedback and requests to return.
I have presented recently to the Snowdonia Society, Preston and District Photographic Society, Conwy Camera Club, and Rhyl Photographic Society, who I am sure will pass on positive feedback of my presentation if requested.
If a Presentation to your Society/Organisation is of interest please do get in touch through the Contact page on here.
WORKSHOPS / EXPERIENCE DAYS
Again a new addition this year, and not something I have considered before until I was asked late last year if I would consider it.
So now I am offering this service and it is very much a flexible offer, in that I can taylor the day to your absolute requirements, for example a recent client asked to spend a day photographing with me, taking shots together, passing on advice on camera set up, composition, Wildlife advice etc. This is the feedback I received from the client ….
“For my 60th Birthday treat my wife decided to give me a day out with Gary. I use a Canon 700D with a Sigma 150-600 zoom lens. Gary took me to the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust at Martin Mere, between Liverpool and Blackpool. It was a great choice as a location due to the vast numbers of wildfowl on the main lake. Birds were flying in and out continually, arguing and challenging each other and displaying courting behaviour. He showed me a variety of different ways to improve the quality of my photographs including the use of ‘Manual’ mode instead of ‘Automatic’ (which I always used previously) and indicating the settings I should use. Then by pointing out ideal photographic subjects, including birds in flight, and then tracking them by half pressing the shutter button. As a result I ended up with some 1300 photographs, some of which approached Gary’s in clarity and quality…. Although I failed to get the really good pics of the birds in flight that Gary managed. It was a real privilege to watch Gary at work, tracking birds in flight: he said ‘This will test the speed of your reactions’ as the birds were fed and flew in flocks to the hide. I would highly recommend a day out with Gary both as an experience and as an opportunity to improve your photographic techniques.”
Should a similar day be of interest or anything else please do get in touch with me through the Contact page.
