An illustrated talk about creative approaches to landscape photography
Thank you so, so much for your truly great presentation.  I think you’ll probably realise that it went down really well!  You were so engaging - and I know that it left many of our members feeling totally enthused.  
A fantastic night!

- June Poston, President & Syllabus Secretary, Crosby Camera Club
​“One the most engaging evenings we’ve had here in recent years."
- Richard Barrett, Programme Secretary, Chester Photographic Society
“Your talk to us last season had a profound effect on our members… and the buzz is still there."
- Ian Stanley, Programme Secretary, Frodsham & District Photographic Society


​​My talk Messing About with the Landscape is designed both to entertain and to stimulate creativity amongst attendees.
Lasting approx 1.5 hours, my presentation covers:
      > how photographers and painters portray the landscape differently
      > how and why I moved away from traditional landscape photography to a more creative approach
      > the techniques I use; ICM, double exposures, diffusers, selective focusing
      > equipment and camera settings
      > post processing
      > tips and tricks for creative approaches to landscape
      > discussion / questions and answers.
The talk can be structured with a tea / comfort break in the middle.
The talk is illustrated with:
      > many PDI images of my work and that of a few others
      > a selection of prints
      > two audio-visual presentations.
Reflecting the enthusiasm amongst members that my talk often generates, several clubs have followed up by arranging a 'creative landscape challenge' and inviting me back to informally judge or review the results.  In other cases, I have been engaged to run a creative landscape workshop.


If you would like to arrange for me to talk at your club, please send me a message via my contact page.

"...an exceptional evening with Mark Reeves with inspirations as diverse as Turner and Rothko, and using techniques including slow shutters, double exposures and ICM, he showed us some exceptional painterly and serene images."
- Pamela Jones, President, Bath Photographic Society
