Pauline says: ... This is the third winter that I've been back on the lecture/speaking/presentation circuit ... it was a surreptitious return without fanfares - just letting the fact travel by word of mouth, which it has among the 'northern' clubs and societies! As I get older I prefer the softly softly catchee monkey approach and didn;t wish to be suddenly swamped with bookings and so far that has worked for me, the bookings and return booking are coming in at a manageable rate!

Bookings speakers might find the following information useful and you can look on our website under 'Featured' at the yearly galleries and that will give you an idea of what the lecture will contain:

I'm only taking bookings for the months Nov/Dec/Jan/Feb in any given year. Same goes for lecture creation - that also is only being done in the winter months. The rest of the year we need to be free to go out and get the shots! There is an absurd amount of work in preparing a good lecture; it isn;t just a case of throwing a few pics onto power point one afternoon and calling it done!! A good lecture can take several months for me to hone down to my desired level of production!

I'm creating a series with a theme and it is basically the very best images from each year and some of the anecdotes that go with this crazy business of wildlife photography. As you can see there are four shows completed at the start of 2016:

A Shot @ Wildlife ... Images 2010
A Shot @ Wildlife ... Images 2011
A Shot @ Wildlife ... Images 2012
A Shot @ Wildlife ... Images 2013
A Shot @ Wildlife ... Images 2014

We've received acclaim and been rapidly re-booked by several places for future returns which makes me think I'm doing something right!

This was the start of it when Steve Halliwell phoned towards the end of 2011 and said I'm penciling you in for whatever the date was ... you have 18 months or so to get a show ready ... no pressure ... you can still say no ..... the rest is history ... thanks Steve!
