Richard P Walton - Mind Over Camera - Mediterranean Tour 2012

Open to Members and Non-Members alike

Richard will be talking about his approach to photography and how he runs his photography business.

One of the biggest things he has learnt over the last ten years is that photography comes from the mind and it’s our imaginations that are the key to creating interesting images.

There is an artist inside all of us says Richard and he thinks we should be on the constant search for it. Rather than just being a photographer and doing what is expected of us.

Richard will be using his infamous €25 flashgun, showing how he approaches the making of an image, covering both the ideas in his head and the technical side.
