Illustrated Talks

The latest of my illustrated talks is now done and been successfully road tested. This means that I now offer three talks for social, photographic or wildlife groups. Each can be tailored to suit timings and I can provide all equipment including screen if necessary.

The talks are: The Secret Wildlife of the Cairngorms, Discovering Scotland's Western Isles and the Secrets of Wildlife Photography. My fee is £50 plus mileage at 20p/mile. If you have any questions or would like to enquire about availability please contact me at

Nearly there!

The new talk, Secret Wildlife of the Cairngorms is nearly there. Just a few more slides and a bit more research. As expected though it has left me wanting more so I may have to plan some quick(!) trips up there over the winter and next spring. Need to brush up on my landscapes although this one of Loch Malachie is quite nice.

Plenty of interest in the Introduction to Wildlife Photography Workshop too so I am looking forward to that. Contact me for details of that or talks or any image needs.

Following much demand and the great feedback from previous ones I am now offering another Introduction to Wildlife Photography Workshop at Middleton Hall. The day will run from 10-4.30 on the 25th October. Cost is £28 per person and includes refreshments morning and afternoon.

The workshop is based around a presentation of pictures and illustrations interrupted with demonstrations of equipment and accessories. There will also be a practical session where attendees will get a chance to practice techniques with their own camera.

Each will be illustrated with a series of case studies and the day will be littered with top tips and tricks of the trade!

Topics to be covered include:

Camera equipment and accessories
Camera settings
Composing the picture
Learning your subject
Getting close to the subject
Using hides
Processing, printing and publishing

Interested? contact me at for more details and a booking form.

Scotland Scotland Scotland

It's all about Scotland at the moment with images from my most recent trips to the Cairngorms needing editing fully, the new talk 'Secret Wildife of the Cairngorms' to be written and a celebration of Scottish Wildlife evening to be prepared for too.

Discovering Scotland's Western Isles has been very well recieved over the last few years so I am hopeful that people will enjoy the new images from the Highlands. I have enjoyed my time there and am looking forward to reliving the trips as I compose the new talk. Here are a couple of images from the trips this year as a taster.

If you would like to find out more about the new talk or any of my existing presentations please contact me at or 07810 863177.
