Photographic Holidays, Lectures & Tuition



I started lecturing in 1977 and have presented my illustrated talks and AV shows to acclaim nationwide. It is an experience that I have enjoyed enormously and still do! I make every talk a special event. Whilst the talks are photographically orientated, the show 'The Great British Landscape' is also popular with Lecture Societies and National Trust Groups. All talks are spontaneous. I like to live dangerously, presenting them without notes and tailored to the audience. Every one is fresh, entertaining, informative and at times controversial - I am not a follower of benighted fashion!



Landscape - Searching for Infinity

A comprehensive instructional landscape photography show for digital photographers with supporting programme.


Around Britain with a Camera

Commencing with an Agfa Silette 35mm film camera in 1959, I have photographed the breathtaking scenery

of the British Isles for over 55 years. Achieving frequent publication in quality books and magazines, this

audio visual programme charts my success with amazing images using Nikon, Hasselblad and Olympus cameras.
