I'm an IT instructor in my 'day job', which I've been doing since the early 1990's. In that time I've delivered training to somewhere in excess of 40,000 people!
I'm an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop, and would like to think that I bring some of my real-world experience (from a photographic perspective) to my training courses, and some of my editing skills, thoughts and processes to my shooting.
I am available for Zoom-based talks, presentations, lectures and training sessions, some of which are detailed below.
If you would like a talk or a training session then please get in touch - I can provide an outline of suggested content, or I can run a completely bespoke session, for up to 15 people.
"It was a very informative session. He explained it thoroughly. Thanks for organising such an excellent speaker."
"You can tell he's a trained instructor, very clear and easy to follow."
"It's not often a speaker explains clearly and concisely how they achieve their images. The techniques Richard explained can be used when editing any image and this I found really useful."
"The other thing people really liked was your style of presenting. I know you said it’s your job but believe me after many years in the IT industry I can see you have a talent that can often be lacking in “geeks”. You have a great way of engaging with people."
"It's great to see a photographer taking kick-ass shots without having the most expensive kit!"
"Richard's style is so well paced, and I'm sure everyone would welcome him back for another of his talks!"
"Great evening really enjoyed it…. images were fabulous and his explanation of his process both in capture and editing was excellent and tailored to club members. His willingness to answer questions was also much appreciated."
"Really enjoyed last night. I think the way Richard presented and the way he went through post processing really suited the Zoom way of meeting."
"Learnt a lot about Lightroom and Photoshop I didn’t know"
"The training you’ve given us has been excellently balanced both in content and relaxed delivery. You manage to make things appear achievable through demeanour and easy to understand methods."
"Richard was so easy to listen to, he didn't rush anything or confuse us with unnecessary info."
