Photographic documentary talks

“A photographer is granted exclusive, behind-the-scenes access – to people as they really are, and history as it unfolds.”

Photographs capture a moment in time, preserving it for future generations. As a photographer, I have used my camera to document people, places and things that interest me, throughout my life.  But, no matter how revealing, images only tell a small part of any story – and the time has come to tell mine.

Reportage – revealing the stories behind the photographs

Now, I give illustrated talks, revealing the true stories and secrets behind the images. Talks include: “’I Shot Frank Zappa: Confessions of a 1960s rock ‘n’ roll photographer’; ‘I Shot a Guru: A photographic documentary of guru culture from the 1970s to the present day’.
