Talk updates…

Speaking in person is always a bit of a lottery in terms of dates, as I’m away an awful lot, but I will always genuinely try and slot in a talk whenever I can and am in the country. As such, do ask…don’t be frightened!  Time is limited but do try.

Remember, all the fees on the night go to charity – and I have no preset amount in that regard. Indeed I leave it entirely to the discretion of the organisation I am speaking to. Donations can be made directly to the charities themselves (online or more commonly by giving me a cheque addressed to them), or via me if rules and regulations do not permit you to donate directly (as is the case with some clubs I know).

If you’d like to pop along to a talk, here’s some of the photo societies and clubs that I’ve got scheduled in the remainder of 2024. Bookings are now being taken for 2025.

Most places will accept guests for a nominal fee, so why not pop along if you’re at a loose end? For enquiries about bookings for other dates…drop me a line!

For after dinner speaking and corporate events, please enquire directly for availability and fees. Please note this page is updated regularly during the year, so do check back when you get the chance…

A special evening…

Also…why not treat yourself to a special evening being hosted by Pinner and Hemel Hempstead Camera Clubs in December? Get into the festive mood with a fun evening of behind the scenes stories, anecdotes from my career in a presentation called “A Wild Life”

A draw on the night to win a signed limited edition will also take place, and there will be plenty of other things going on as well – all in favour of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.

Come and help me raise £2000 on the night for charity! For more details and to book tickets, contact Pinner Camera Club directly, or drop me an email.
