Feedback from clubs after A Taste of Africa talk.

I am always interested to receive feedback from people who attend one of my talks, workshops or holidays. This is a selection of the comments I have received which specifically relate to my talk “A Taste of Africa”.

As the subject of countless TV wildlife documentaries Africa needs little introduction. It is a land of the diverse wildlife, big game, big cats, huge landscapes, great people and is high on many photographers’ wish lists. It is a land of adventure and wide open spaces. The cradle of mankind, part of the old world but also a shiny new one just waiting to be explored.
I was fortunate enough to live in East Africa as a boy in the late 50’s and to study large carnivores there in the late 70’s. The region and its wildlife have always held a fascination for me and I have run safaris there ever since. There is absolutely no equal to photographing African Wildlife in its natural surroundings. I now run regular guided trips to many parts of East Africa. Through my photos and video, this talk gives you a taste of some of the wildlife you will see if you visit on an organised safari. As a professional zoologist I will also give you a further appreciation of the wildlife itself. Africa with its unspoilt wilderness, stunning landscapes and amazing sunsets makes it truly a Photographer’s Paradise – we will explore it together.

Feedback from clubs after A Taste of Africa talk – replaced Tanzanian a Photographers Paradise talk – in January 2023

Richard Freail – Chairman Webheath and District Photo Club

“We always look forward to a visit from Bob as his talks are delivered with great knowledge, passion and enthusiasm – and his presentation “Tanzania – A Photographer’s Paradise” did not disappoint. Presented as a ‘virtual tour’ Bob’s knowledge of the subject shone through and his images were outstanding. Thank-you for an excellent evening.”

Daphne Hanson – Secretary Bottisham and Burwell Photographic Club

“Very many thanks for a super talk last night, we all thoroughly enjoyed our virtual tour of Tanzania and meeting the various animals along the way!”

Dave Hunter – Corby Camera Club

“Having watched your presentation on the East African Safari I along with all our members who were present were highly impressed with what we saw. The quality of your work along with the stunning content was one of the best and most informative presentations we have had the pleasure to watch. I am sure that we as a club will be looking to invite you back to give another presentation in our next programme. Thanks for a great evening.”

Nick Hubbard

“Excellent and informative talk at Wellingborough Camera Club. And thank you for your lucid explanation of Canon’s back button auto-focus!”

Richard Appleton

“Always interesting, always passionate and always great images”

Alan Horn

“Last night was the second time I have been to a presentation by you and just as the first one I was so impressed with your knowledge of the country and wildlife and then to be able to present it on screen so professionally. The only problem is that I really need to go on Safari ONE DAY!!!!!”

Many thanks Geri

“On my first night at a camera club, I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction: it was a wonderful trip round Tanzania, thank you, not only for the fabulous photographs but also the many snippets of intriguing information. My only regret is that I wasn’t able to walk out with half your prints under my arm!”

Stuart Davies. Kettering

“Great talk. I did enjoy the “virtual tour” style of talk was great. I also found the explanations about the history of the areas very interesting. Oh, and the pictures were brilliant.”

Sylvia Adams.

“Bob visited Kettering camera club last night to give us his latest talk which was a Virtual Tour of Tanzania. As usual, he gave us so much more.His fabulous images were bought to life with his enthusiastic recollection of every instance when he took them. His knowledge on the subject matter and the geographical area where first class.Very generous in giving his time to come and share so much with us.Sure I can say that all of us left buzzing with Bob’s contagious enthusiasm & will all be getting lottery tickets this weekend so we can join him on one of his magical tours. Thanks so much Bob & hope to see you on a Birds of Prey course soon”

David Bond, Kettering

“Another excellent night, I always look forward to a talk when I see Bob’s on the calendar and certainly wasn’t disappointed – such fabulous images that in some cases took me back to a safari I went on (nothing as focused as Bob’s!)”

Jo Stevenson.

“Bob can I please thank you on behalf of our club. The evening on Tanzania you gave us last week was absolutely fantastic and enjoyed by everyone who attended. We have not had so many positive comments following a presentation for a very long time. Your presentation style was clear and you photos breath taking. For health reason I cannot go on one of your trips although I would very much like to. I do however hope that others from our club will book on your trip in March.
As you know we advertised this as an open event and invited non-members to attend. It was unashamedly a fund raising exercise and having totted up the ticket sale, expenses etc. our treasure informs me that we made £182 for club funds. We have also managed to attract 4 new members to the club so it was a winner all round.
Thank you again we will certainly be asking you back for another presentation next year this time it will be to the club members only but I know it will be eagerly anticipated.”
