New for 2018 - Human Wildlife Conflict - Schools Talk.

While entertaining, this talk is ideal for the younger audience (Senior school). With great images, tales of photography, but the important message of how we should be more responsible for wildlife whether its at home or elsewhere.

    I’m writing to thank you for a very entertaining and informative talk. I went to the Camera Club again last Monday and lots of members came up to me to tell me how much they’d enjoyed the evening. Several shared that they hadn’t expected to because the subject was horses, but were very pleasantly surprised. So, please accept our heartfelt thanks! Can we book you again for next year if you are not too busy?
