"Welsh Light - Seascapes" - For Anglesey Marine Week
I was asked by Kathy James of Naturebites to contribute an event to "Anglesey Marine Week" an event she formulated and managed. As my new book "Welsh Light" has just been published I decided to talk about some of the seascape images published in this volume, with a more general talk about my need for and connection to wild places and open landscape.
The talk was followed by quality discussion during the Q&A session afterwards. One delegate had travelled all the way from Cardiff just to hear my talk!
£30 was donated to the Marine Conservation Society as a percentage of the talk fees.
Thanks to Kathy James at Naturebites for creating such a superb event & for asking me to talk!

2011Wednesday 9th Oct (7.00 pm) Artist's talk at my gallery
"Anglesey Art Group" - Anglesey
Just two days after my talk for the Holyhead Camera Club here t my gallery, I was in full flow again, this time for the very busy Anglesey Art Group. The talk lasted just under two hours and covered everything from art, aesthetic and philosophy to environment, conservation and destruction.
I simply can't limit myself to talking about photography as an art, because my subject is so much more important than image making. I can't talk about landscape as art because it isn't, it's a subject which inspires my art - it's a subject which is under threat, it is a subject linked to politics, attitudes, morals, nature, wildlife, conservation, pollution, health, and to me and I know many others, spirituality. It's always great when an audience gets excited by these issues rather than cameras and technique, and being artists, this group didn't disappoint at all :-)
Thanks to artist Allan Redfern for inviting me to talk to his group.

"Holyhead Camera Club" - Anglesey
I rarely do talks to camera clubs but I was so nicely asked by club chairman Medwyn Wlliams that I couldn't refuse, AND unlike most clubs they paid a really fair fee for the talk which helped bend my arm :-)
The talk lasted an hour and a half and the audience were really receptive and asked intelligent questions, not even about cameras :-) Several members bought my books afterwards which is always a respectful compliment from photographers, so thank you guys.

"Menai Bridge Senior Citizens' Club" - Anglesey
A group of incredibly sprightly, bright eyed and chirpy ladies (average age 90!) swarmed into my gallery and most flew up the long flight of stairs to the lecture room ! I gave a 1.5 hour passionate chat about landscape, photography, environment and life in general, followed by insightful questions (as you would expect) from the ladies, and then coffee, book signings and even a Limited Edition print sale. Afterwards, several ladies came to tell me it was the best talk they had ever had! Everyone was chatting and excited. I fell in love with every one of them, what a fantastic group!
They are always keen to see new members, so please contact Eryl Gowers for further information, on Menai Bridge 01248 717292. They meet at the Menai Bridge Community Centre alternate Tuesdays, between 2pm and 3pm (Autumn & Spring)
