New photo book Published by MiniClick: I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save

MiniClick has started publishing small photo books focusing on one project. For those of you that don’t know MiniClick has been organising free photography talks in Brighton and further afield since 2010. I have had the pleasure of speaking at MiniClick on several occasions. So it’s with great pride that I can tell you that my work will be published along with 4 other photographers in the first set of photo books. They will launch on June the 25th at the Old Market in Hove.

Tips for making better presentations

I have been doing a lot of public speaking recently and am about to give my first talk in London on the 14th March which is odd as I have spoken all across the UK and given a few talks in the US, but this will be my first in London. I also have put together quite a few presentations for MiniClick at short notice, so I am a dab hand at Keynote as well. Because of this I feel I have gained experience with public speaking to the point where I can offer advice to others who are about to get up in front of a crowd. Some of the advice in this tutorial is geared towards Apple’s Keynote. Keynote is Apple’s version of PowerPoint, if you have Mac and don’t have Keynote, get it now as it’s only £13.99. This is not a Keynote tutorial so if you are PC-using-PowerPoint fan, the information in this post will still be relevant to you.

Talk at PhotoForum in London on Thursday (14th March)

On Thursday 14th of March I’m giving a talk about my work at PhotoForum in London. PhotoForum is a free monthly photography talk with each of the events featuring two speakers. Speaking on the same night as myself will be photo journalist Mimi Mollica. I have spoken about my work in various places like: Book shops in San francisco, Google’s headquarters in California, galleries in Germany, Wales & Leeds, BLAB in Manchester, various Universities and of course the mighty MiniCLick! Until now I have not spoken in London, so it feels like quite a special event for me.

Watch my BLAB online

Last month I did a little northern tour; I spoke at BLAB in Manchester and then at the White Cloth gallery for Exposure Leeds the following night. Both nights I spoke about my work and the Manchester talk is now online. If you are ever up that neck of the woods I strongly recommend you check out BLAB if it’s on and that you check out the White Cloth gallery in Leeds too. I’d like to thank Exposure Leeds and BLAB for bringing me up there and all the people that came to both events.

Phoot Camp coming to Brighton with an exhibition and talk

As part of the Brighton Photo Fringe Festival MiniClick is bringing a slice of Phoot Camp to Brighton in the form of an exhibition and talk. Phoot Camp is an invite-only photography retreat where photographers get together for a few days and create new work. It’s been held in San Francisco, LA, Marfa (Texas) and upstate New York. I have been lucky enough to attend three of the four camps. I have met some amazingly creative people at Phoot so I am really proud to bring a little slice of the camp to Brighton for the Photo Fringe.

The Floating Memories project was set up to archive and make accessible the past 150 years of the sporting and sea bathing heritage of Brighton Swimming Club, of which I am a member.
