Photography / Video Talks, Shows and Judging

Alan Colegrave FACI ARPS

Over the last 10 years, I have visited a number of Camera, Video Clubs and Special Interest Groups to give talks or judge. Normally I stick to within 50 miles (80Kms) from where I live but this has not always been the case. Notable exceptions have been the NW and NE of England and northern France.


I am happy to judge Prints, PDIs and AV at club level and inter-club level.
I am happy to judge Video Productions up to the International level (I have judged at BIAFF four times) As a recipient of several International awards and having worked in the television industry for over 40 years I feel that I am able to give a fair and constructive assessment both verbally or as a written criticism.

Talks, Lecture and Shows

Television to the Photographic Studio:
An autobiographical journey from being a News Cameraman to running a photographic studio - Prints
In and Out of the Studio:
As the title may suggest, it is a collection of people images either taken in the studio or outside - Prints or DPIs
Passport, Visa and Backpack:
A collection of AV travelogues with an emphasis on independent travel
From Naked Bike Rides to Tough Guys:
A series of AVs illustrating some of the country's wackier events
AV and Video: How similar - How different:
Looking at the similarities of the two mediums and some of the differences
Video Shows:
These tend to be compiled to suit the individual club.


Normally I just aim the cover my actual door to door costs. These would consist of travel costs be it fuel or rail fares / taxi fares and sometimes a basic meal. As I wish to preserve my "Amateur" status (as far as giving talks is concerned) I do not want to charge for giving the lecture or presentation. Funnily, I quite enjoy it! My only normal exception is when I use my own equipment where I would expect to charge a wear and tear amount. Please check with me beforehand.
