The Beatles Remain

Liverpool is the birthplace of the most famous band in the world and the enduring love for John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr lives on in the streets and landmarks of the city.

Our professional driver will transport us to pop culture landmarks immortalised by the Fab Four. There will be plenty of time and opportunity to photograph them with personal tuition and individual help.

We finish our tour at the legendary Cavern Club where it all began before reviewing our images and creating professional standard edits.

Join me as we embark on a unique and magical smartphone photographic tour through the city of Liverpool, visiting and photographing the inspirational locations made famous by the legendary Beatles.

North Wales At Its Finest

I have chosen the beautiful town of Conwy, in North Wales, as the base for these workshops. There are endless photographic opportunities to discover and inspire your creativity here. Stunning coastal scenery, a backdrop of mountains, historical architecture, bustling high streets, a picture-postcard quay and marina, the smallest house in Britain and of course the magnificent medieval castle and town walls. There really isn’t a better way to improve your photography than by 'getting out there and doing it'.

Guest Speaking and Workshops

 

I frequently present a popular series of talks for camera clubs, photographic societies exhibitions, trade shows and corporate events. My presentations are designed to encourage and inspire the audience to express their creativity. Motivating others to take the next steps on their image-making journey has become my passion. 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. When you book me to present to your group or event, you can be confident that you are engaging a professional, accomplished lecturer with many years of public speaking experience.

Audience feedback and questions are encouraged both during and long after my events via my website and email. The comments that I receive are extremely positive and supportive.

 
What a superb evening we had with Adrian McGarry ARPS. I’m sure many of our audience were impressed with what can be achieved by a smartphone camera and editing software, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we soon see some competition entries from those who’ve previously thought their gear wasn’t “good enough”. As Adrian rightly said - the best camera in the world is the one you have with you!
— Ruthin Camera Club
 

I'm both thrilled and proud that my current presentations ‘Ultimate iPhone Photography' and 'Pixel Painted Art' are in high demand and many organisations book a return visit. I cover the technical and conceptual aspects of my work, sharing the inspirations and influences that shape my creative approach. My talks constantly evolve to include new methods, demonstrations and images.

Ultimate iPhone Photography Talk

Within my iPhone photography presentations I demonstrate the potential to capture incredible photos that take mobile photography from ordinary to extraordinary both onscreen and in print.

 
If you don’t own an iPhone, you’ll certainly want one after Adrian’s convincing talk. You’ll be putting your DSLRs away in a cupboard!
— Chapel Camera Club
His inspiring enthusiasm and impassioned advice that we should let our creative juices flow and take photographs for ourselves and not for others will stay in the minds of members, inform their work, and increase their enjoyment of photography. The dialogue on Facebook into the early hours, by those who couldn’t wait to get home to experiment, spoke volumes about the impact of this memorable presentation in our current season of speaker evenings.
— Lancaster Photographic Society

Pixel Painted Photo Art Talk

Created using brushstrokes and textures with software such as Corel Painter on the desktop and various apps on the iOS platform. Attendees are inspired to create photo art as gifts, greeting cards or submissions in competition.

 
We’ve had excellent speakers recently, without doubt yours was one of the best.
— Knutsford Photographic Society
Adrian’s work, shakes the very foundation, that many of us regard as the rock which our photography skills are based upon. A super nights’ viewing from an equally super presentation and photographer.
— South Liverpool Photographic Society
 

I host numerous workshops and live demonstrations; sharing my images, workflows, techniques and knowledge. I never tire of presenting inspirational workshops to groups and as individual one-to-one sessions. I believe that my enthusiasm and love for creative photography is one of the reasons why my events are so well received and always in demand.

Adrian was extremely accommodating and easy to work with right from the point of making an enquiry and everything about the day itself was well organised, relaxed and friendly. I really got the sense that Adrian wanted me to get as much as I could out of the day. All in all, this is a great 1-1 workshop opportunity and it is also fantastic value. I would recommend it to photographers and picture takers whatever your level of experience.”
