I’ve been asked by Viva Brighton Magazine to give a Pecha Kucha talk at their new event Talent Pool. On the evening there will be a series of talks from different Brighton creative types who will be talking about their creative process. I’ll be talking about the work I’ve been doing for the Brighton i360 and how I was offered the opportunity of working for them.
Brighton Photo Fringe business: MiniClick talk, Tim Andrews Over the Hill Exhibition and The Shot I Never Forgot
The Brighton Biannual and companion Photo Fringe festival are now in full swing. I’ve not got any stand alone shows in this years festival but I have images in two group shows and I am speaking at a MiniClick event. Combined the Biannual and Photo Fringe is a massive photography festival and would be well worth a trip to Brighton from London and further afield. If you are from London and this post does not tempt you down I recommend you go to ‘Make Life Worth Living‘ and ‘Open for Business‘ at the Media Space at the London Science Museum.
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.
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.

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. Apart from cataloging and making sense of the immense archive of material, there are lots of upcoming events to help make the history come alive and create a narrative from the Club’s great story
As part of the Brighton Digital festival I will be giving a short talk and then taking part in a panel discussion at the Fabrica Gallery on Wednesday the 14th of September. Other artists taking part are Kirsty Hall, Photography collective Wandering Bears and Lucy Phillips creator of the What Cannot Be Seen. The theme for the evening is about how artists use the Internet not only to show their work but also as part of it, a la “the medium is the message”. Continue reading
Jim Stephenson has put my 76 minute MiniCLick talk online for your viewing pleasure. The talk is about the photographers that I find interesting and inspirational. I spoke about a mix of photographers from people I know to famous shooters from the past and present. If you want to discover more from any of the photographers work mentioned I have put links to all of them in this blog post.
While on the subject of talks there are loads of MiniClick related talks coming up and I will be speaking at the Margate photography festival in mid August. More details below.
