Gavin Hoey has been a freelance photographer since 2001 and has been sharing his extensive knowledge and skill across the internet, facebook and many magazines. He has produced over 1000 free video tutorials in conjunction with Adorama and we were very lucky to book him, as he is now fully booked for presentations until 2020.
The first part of the evening was called Camera Alchemy and included demonstrations on bending light, bubble photography, pouring water, basic flash skills and studio portraits. It was a fascinating night with a very appreciative audience who were provided with many ideas to improve their photography and experiment with new ideas. It was a great pleasure to learn from someone with such a wealth of knowledge who was also happy to share what he has learnt in an accessible and entertaining manner. He and his wife Sam made a great team, as she provided and assisted him in setting up props and ensured the evening went as smoothly as possible. It wasn't so much a presentation as a show and we were all thoroughly entertained.
Gavin's model for the evening was our club Treasurer, Mick Meaney, and pictured here are the very impressive results!
