Comments from previous talks:

“It was one of the best talks for several reasons. It was inspiring how Richard quickly adapts to whatever he is ‘focussing’ on during various stages of his life and becomes proficient enough to teach others. He has a wide range of interests, very unassuming and down to earth person. What I particularly liked about his talk was his analysis of club photography and in some ways a snapshot of current state of photography in the digital age and also inspiring members to enjoy photography in their own way.”

Thank you so much for a brilliantly inspirational presentation – so many people told me that they had enjoyed it, so you pitched it exactly right for a broad range of abilities and interests – thank you!

“Just a quick note, the presentation yesterday was informative, enlightening and enjoyable – thank you”

A big thank you on behalf of the club for the excellent presentation that you gave us last night. It was thought provoking and informative with some very valuable lessons thrown in that can be applied not just to our photography, but to life in general: never worry about what other people think.

“Your professional presentation with a candid commentary, balanced with good humour and first-rate photography made our meeting a great success.”

“One of the best nights of the season … All in all a thoroughly enjoyable evening.”

“ We will be seeing Richard back in the coming seasons for more of his talks going by the reaction from the club members last night….Excellent stuff!”

I wanted to say thank you for arranging the session with Richard today, which I found hugely interesting and helpful.

Thank you to Richard for such an interesting morning.
Truly enjoyed the presentation and look forward to others to come.
