Talks & Seminars - Mathew Browne

Talks & Seminars

I offer a number of presentations and talks for camera clubs, photography shows and other events. As I’m based in Carmarthen, I tend to concentrate on south Wales and the south west of England. However I’m willing to travel further afield.

Please get in touch with your requirements – my fee depends primarily on mileage.

Weekday talks are cheaper and have much better availability since most of my weekends are booked well in advance with photoshoots.

The Art of Travel Photography

This is an abridged version of my travel photography workshop, covering the basics of the following topics

  • How to find the best shooting locations
  • Equipment
  • Technique and settings
  • Shooting in different environments and different styles
  • Post-processing using Adobe Lightroom
  • Image refinements using Luminar and Nik Collection

My photography career began as a passionate amateur photographer taking the best photos I can while on holiday – to date I have visited nearly 50 countries. Now I teach others how to take stunning travel photos and my hobby has become my profession – I work with tourist boards as a freelance travel photographer, sell prints of my images, run photo tours and write photographic guides.

This talk typically runs 60-90 minutes inclusive of a Q&A at the end.

Fireworks Photography

This is an abridged version of my fireworks photography workshop, covering the basics of the following topics

  • How to find the best shooting locations
  • Equipment
  • Technique and settings
  • Shooting different types of fireworks
  • Post-processing using Adobe Lightroom
  • Image refinements using Luminar and Nik Collection

This talk typically runs 60-90 minutes inclusive of a Q&A at the end.

“Pixelstick” Lightpainting Photography Workshop

I am pleased to offer a large group version of my lightpainting workshop. I ordinarily charge £125pp (£95pp during winter months) for this workshop, however I am happy to negotiate an attractive group rate for running this as a group workshop depending on number of participants and mileage.

First, we learn the essentials of night photography in a classroom setting – such as camera settings, focus techniques, composition tips. As the sun is setting we will reach our destination to compose our photograph – sunset is itself a good photo opportunity, so we will get some of these too. Once fully dark we will take a number of test shots to master the methods we have learned. Finally, we will set up our cameras on our tripods to capture a succession of photographs incorporating a “Pixelstick” light painting tool. Using the techniques learned earlier, you will be able to compose these into beautiful and creative photos.

The talk typically runs 60 minutes inclusive of a Q&A at the end. The live demonstration typically runs for 2-3 hours.
