SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS

Camera Club Presentations

Upcoming talks

Camera Club Speaker

As an experienced landscape photographer, I’m frequently invited to camera clubs and photographic societies as a guest speaker. During my talks I tackle various aspects of landscape, architecture and travel photography.

Beginning in 2011, I’ve visited mostly clubs across the South East of England. But since 2020, I’ve been reaching audiences much further afield, including Scotland and Australia, with online presentations.

At this time I have the following lectures available:

  • Creative Landscape Photography. A talk focused to a large degree on photographic techniques. Especially the use of filters, includes a practical demonstration (not suitable for an online presentation).
  • Landscape Photography is Simple. More conceptual, revolving around the use of light of different qualities. As well as composition, timing and planning. (Suitable for an online presentation)
  • (NEW) Landscape: the Art of  Seeing. A continuation of “Landscape Photography is Simple”, but works as a standalone presentation. An exposition of some of the points only signaled in the other lecture, particularly composition, anticipation and imagination. (Suitable for an online presentation)
  • Landscape: From Idea to Postproduction. Case studies of a selection of images, representing different subject matter, and different challenges. An in-depth look at the whole process, from initial concept and creative choices, through equipment and camera settings, to software parameters. (Suitable for online presentations ONLY)

All presentations are generously illustrated with diverse examples of my work. Images taken in the UK and overseas. I always welcome and encourage audience participation.

I may be available on short notice.

If you’re looking for a Camera Club speaker, get in touch. Also, feel free to read the testimonials from some of the clubs I’ve visited.

Good Evening with Slawek

Slawek gave us a great evening at Folkestone Camera Club. He showcased beautiful, well constructed images and emphasised how to get it right in camera. He gave all the information we needed to get started with filters in camera, the sales in them will now rocket! An excellent Camera Club presentation from a true professional.
