POSTCARDS FROM THE BLUE
This engaging talk is a window into the world of underwater photography and life beneath the ocean waves. There are seven very different chapters showcasing big animal action, life on coral reefs, salt water, freshwater, day and night.
I delve into lighting, explain some of my fieldcraft and reveal the challenges involved in capturing world-class images. With time for a Q&A at the end, this impactful presentation will take about 90 minutes.
Glow in the Dark
Dip beneath the surface of our freshwater realm with this stunning, visual talk. I’ll highlight some of the stories I'm following and bring into view hidden facets of a seldom-seen world. With a special focus on British freshwater habitats, I discuss my photographic approach and what it takes to create groundbreaking, contemporary images.
My Freshly Squeezed
presentation lasts about 60 mins. It features over 135 slides, including interesting infographics, unusual data, freshwater images as well as awarded work.

PEAS IN THE POD
This lively, visual feast is a detailed account of freediving and photographing the wild pods of Atlantic spotted dolphin in Bahamian waters. There is a strong emphasis on dolphin behaviour, their communication and intelligence. I'll share photographic insights, explain how to get the best from human / dolphin interaction and talk about various challenges encountered along the way. At the end of my talk there will be time for a Q&A.
The presentation is about 50 mins and features over 80 stunning images including a host of award winners.
