Lectures photography lectures for camera clubs and interest groups

Ian Daisley provides lectures for camera clubs in a range of subjects. There are currently four lectures, which are detailed on this page. If you would like something tailored to your club's own particular requirements then Ian is happy to do this. In fact the lectures are often changed around a little so that the subject matter fits in with what clubs need.

All lectures are shown as digital presentations and we ask that the club provide the digital projector and screen. Most lectures are also accompanied by display boards, so that people can take time to view a selection of images in large printed format.

Practical evenings

Ian also provides workshop style evenings specifically for camera clubs, so members can learn new techniques and understand workflow from a professional perspective.

Current lectures include

  • Derbyshire & The Peak District
  • Croatia's Cascading Lakes - Plitvice Lakes National Park
  • The Peak District in Black & White
  • Being Freelance


If you would like to book Ian for your club or society, please call or email. An evening lecture costs £95, plus any travel or accommodation costs.

Portrait workshops

Instructive evenings for members of camera clubs and societies. Learn how to use lighting in the studio to create great portraits. Use this knowledge when you are working with natural light.

There are no scheduled dates at the moment, but please contact us if you would like to arrange something specific for your members.

Derbyshire & The Peak District

A selection of images covering the Peak District National Park and the surrounding areas. This is an excellent mix of subjects, including landscapes, flora and fauna. Ian also takes time to discuss composition, the changing light and some of the technical considerations required to make his images.

Croatia's Cascading Lakes Plitvice Lakes National Park

Croatia's Plitvice Lakes National Park is a truly stunning environment that takes your breath away at every turn. Located on the eastern side of Croatia, close to the Bosnian border, it offers the visitor a spectacular destination. The 16 interconnected lakes create numerous waterfalls, and the surrounding woodlands and hills provide plenty of opportunity to explore the national park.

Ian's lecture provides a great insight into the area, which is sure to wet your appetitie to consider a visit of your own. He provides travel and location information that will help the new visitor and shows some of the best locations to capture your images.

The Peak District in Black & White

Ian's love of Black & White photography is illustrated in this lecture that shows the Peak District in monochrome.

Being Freelance life as a professional photographer

As a freelance photographer, Ian discusses the wide variety of work that he undertakes. The approach to his work can just as easily be used by the ametuer photographer, which in many cases involves concentrating on the creation of the image and visualising the final product.

This lecture covers subjects such as studio lighting, portraits, motorcycles, landscapes, product photography and weddings.

A discussion of his digital workflow will be of interest to many photographers.
