Royalty, Celebrity and the Press at The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery - The Talk

August 19, 2019  •  1 Comment

Further to my last post, at the weekend I did indeed make it up to The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery where I spoke about my journey to the world of Entertainment photography.

At 1pm Sunday approximately 20 people joined me in the exhibition space of the Assignments 2019 Gallery.

My slide show included over 100 images with subjects including:

  • Childhood Dreams
  • My Journey - From my first published image (The Sunday Times 13th Jan 2008)
  • Access (The Key)
  • Working with "Stars"
  • Camera Shy "Stars"
  • Papping (or not!)
  • Dealing with photographing your idols
  • Dealing with Egos
  • The rocky relationship between celebrities and the press

The talk itself ran for an hour, after which the questions and answer session lasted another 30 minutes with all sorts of interesting points raised.

It was great fun, I really enjoyed it and despite all the hard preparation I would be really happy to do it again should anyone express an interest. If you are, please do not hesitate to contact me!

I even got asked to sign one of the Assignments 2019 books (as I was on the creative team and one of the curators of the exhibition). It is a great book and well worth a look (they are selling fast).

I would like to thank the Potteries & Art Gallery Team who were really helpful.

Thanks Julie really enjoyed the presentation. Shame we only had an hour. Fascinating to hear the technicalities, the behind the scenes stories and the magic moments. And to have my eternal question answered. Is it moment or technicality that makes the image. Will follow you with great interest...... X
