On behalf of the Clacton Camera Club a very BIG THANK YOU for coming all this way and giving your lecture and showing so much of your work. I think and hope you could tell by the atmosphere, chatter and enthusiasm of your audience what an excellent evening you gave us. I am sure we will be talking about you and your images for many weeks to come. The evening seemed to go all too quickly, and we have had many phone calls thanking us for the evening, an evening which you made special.

Many thanks for coming along yesterday and speaking to the Croydon Group both in the afternoon and evening. Your talk on Wildlife of the North Downs went down very well and your photographs were superb. I understand we had a record turnout for both meetings! I hope you had a safe journey home and look forward to inviting you back at a future date.

I would like to thank you very much for such an interesting talk entitled ‘Field Techniques in Nature Photography’ and I know members were impressed with the amount of information received on wildlife, as well as all the various tips on taking such wonderful photographs. I particularly like the hares! Many members were enthused about the evening and I was very pleased with the turnout – one of the best.
Margaret Rimmer, Secretary, EPIC (Eynsford Photographic Image Club)
Robert is Regional Judge for the WWT (Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust) Photography Competition.
Aside from giving talks, Robert is also available to judge photography competitions. Robert has extensive experience in shooting sport, photojournalism and architecture as well as his specialist areas, wildlife and landscape, and therefore has a broad knowledge of all fields of photography.
Robert himself was once a camera club member and so fully appreciates how important it is to be on one hand critical, but on the other, give constructive advice. He never forgets that there is very likely to be a budding photographer out there entering their first competition and what Robert does not want to do, is knock the confidence out of a promising individual. Something he himself has witnessed and, indeed, when much younger, was on the end of!
Hi, just wanted to say how inspirational your judging was at the club last night. It's been a long time since I witnessed a judge (at our club) not scared to say when a print wasn't quite up to scratch. If only that horse’s mouth was four inches above the stable door! How will we all learn and improve our skills if we are not criticised. What a breath of fresh air your comments were, real technical help and 'colourful ' advice which made me want to come home and do better! Thanks and good luck to you,
Jennifer, Gateway Camera Club Member
