My talks and lectures are thought provoking, interactive and informative.


I started providing talks to camera clubs and photographic societies back in 2014 after graduating from my MA in Photographic Studies. My aim was to share a side of photography that many people pass by.


My talks tend to make people think rather than outlining specific ways of approaching the medium. I feel that by helping people think for themselves they become much stronger behind the camera.


On this page you will not only find a list of my forthcoming talks you will also see a list of the talks that I provide. If you are a member of a camera club, photographic society or other organisation please take a look and contact me if you would like to book a talk for your club.
