Norman Rockwell was an American author, painter and illustrator. His works have a broad popular appeal in the United States for their reflection of American culture. Rockwell is most famous for the cover illustrations of everyday life he created for The Saturday Evening Post magazine over nearly five decades. This talk will show just some of the hundreds of his works (approximately 50 images) and an explanation on why he painted them. This is an image based lecture with a narrative on most of the pictures and will be projected onto a screen.Views: 104 | Enquiries: 0
I am a 69 year old retired Quality Engineer who worked for a large engineering company who made transducers for all types of industries. I am university trained and have been taking photographs for over 40 years and have gained wide-ranging experience on how pictures work. I am a relaxed type of photographer who loves trying all the different categories of photography that are available. I love to help people who are struggling with the basic fundaments of picture taking. I am approachable and have an easy-going attitude to explaining how camera’s and photos work. My aim is to turn people who take snaps into good photographers. About my talks: Firstly I charge a token payment, and have not increased my fees for the four years I have been conducting lectures, I do this not for the money but for the love of photography. I offer a range of talks from helping people understand their cameras; this covers basics photography right through to getting the best out of visiting and photographing different cities and places. I also have a range of fun talks on photographs I have taken over the years. All the talks are photography based and come with up to 100 images per talk, time permitting. I supply my own laptop, screen and projector though I am happy to use in-house equipment when it is available. I conduct lectures to Camera Clubs, U3A groups, Rotary Clubs, PROBUS groups, WI groups, Gardening Groups and General Hobby Groups, manly in the East Midlands. Usually my talks last between 50 and 60 minutes and I also have a longer version for organisations who like a break during the event. However I can tailor any talk to last as long as required.
