Lectures – “Shooting People and other stuff”, “The making of……”

Since taking early retirement at the end of 2016, Mike has focused his time on developing his creative approach to photography, something he enjoys sharing, whether knowledge and experience of studio lighting, portrait photography or use of Photoshop.  In the last year this has developed on a more formal basis as a club speaker with his lecture “Shooting People and other stuff” illustrated with many of his prints.
