Last night I visited Cirencester Camera club for the first time to present a talk to their members. What a lovely group!
They made me feel very welcome and I had some very appreciative comments from several of the attendees. They’ve already asked if I’d go back and do another talk for them in the future, which I’d be very happy to do so I think we can call that a success :-)
Yesterday’s talk was based on my somewhat ‘maverick’ approach to photography, bucking the trend and deliberately not succumbing to the ‘typical camera club’ mentality. I spoke about the common excuses I hear all the time from students and how to get past them, how I go about shooting on location and dispelling the rumour that no, I really don’t just shoot naked ladies.
They have a raffle on their club nights and I offered a prize in the form of a half-day training session with me which was won by Katrina Ellor. Well done Katrina, I’m looking forward to it!
Here’s a little snap from their Facebook group. Please excuse the goon at the front, I didn’t realise they were going to post the pic, I just thought the chap was taking a snap!
Here’s a little write-up in the Gloucester Gazette about my talk at Tyndale Photography Club last week.
I had another very enjoyable evening yesterday presenting a talk on digital workflow and editing techniques to the Tyndale Photographic Club in North Nibley. They always make me feel very welcome, and it’s nice to have a group who are open to new ideas and who’ll ask plenty of questions! :-)
A couple of people asked about the little rugged backup drive I mentioned in my talk, so I thought I’d include a link for you to make things easier. I’ve added a little Amazon ‘web store’ where I’ll share some useful product links etc.

You can add them straight to your regular amazon account from this and check out as normal.
Hope that’s useful!
