I never tire of giving inspirational talks and I believe that my enthusiasm and love for visual arts is one of the reasons why my presentations are so well received and popular. I have hosted numerous workshops, seminars and performed live demonstrations sharing my images, workflows, techniques and knowledge. Motivating others to take the next steps on their image-making journey has become a passion.
I'm thrilled that both of my presentations 'Pixel Painted Art' and "iPhone Photography & More' are always in demand and many organisations book a return visit. My Pixel Painted images are recreations of my photographs using brushstrokes and textures with software such as Corel Painter. Attendees are always inspired to create painted photos as gifts, greeting cards or submissions in photographic competitions. Within the iPhone photography presentations I demonstrate the potential to capture incredible photos that take mobile photography from ordinary to extraordinary both onscreen and in print.
My talks constantly evolve to include new methods, demonstrations and images. Audience feedback and questions are encouraged both during and long after the event via my website and email. I cover the technical and conceptual aspects of my work, sharing the inspirations and influences that shape my creative approach. In March 2013, the Royal Photographic Society awarded me an ARPS distinction; awarded for images of exceptional standards. Recently, the Corel Corporation, a leading global software company, gave me the status of 'Feature Artist' in their Painter 2018® software in recognition of the work that I produce in their amazing digital paint application.
I am available to present to clubs, societies, exhibitions, trade shows and corporate events. Using my award winning artwork or stunning iPhone photography as a visual narrative, I engage with audiences of any size. Presentations can be tailored to fit your needs, usually lasting from one hour up to three hours. Book me to present to your group or event and you can be confident that you are engaging a professional, accomplished lecturer with years of public speaking experience.
I charge a reasonable and fair fee that takes into account travel time and expenses but is designed to fit the financial constraints of club budgets. Satisfaction is guaranteed as these quotes and testimonials confirm...
