I travelled extensively throughout Japan photographing travel guides for Thomas Cook and the AA over many years and getting the chance to see both the popular and less well know aspects of this fasinating country. Let me take you into the fish markets and down side streets, show you stunning modern architecture and the real lives of the Japanese people. Ths is a country that effortlessly blends modernism and traditionalism and is not at all what you actally expect. This fascinating talk is illustrated with the best of my Japanese photography and has plenty of humour to keep you amused.

About Jim Holmes

I am a professional documentary photographer that specialises in worldwide humanitarian and environmental assignments from my base in Chester. I have travelled extensively usually to the less well know corners of the world! I lived in South East Asia for 20 years, in Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia.

I speak on a range of subjects, so take a look at my list please. My talks are informative and humorous, because as we all know, the strangest things happen when you travel...

I have worked in this niche specialisation for 25 years and I recommend a viewing of my website to get a better picture of what I mean: www.jimholmes.co.uk . I am a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and lecture on geographical subjects, as well as my photographic work. My talks are passionate, professional and thought provoking richly illustrated with dynamic images. I can discuss the issues of photography, remote areas travel, environmental and cultural subjects and the history of an area.

Please consider my talks for your future plans. My schedule books up well in advance, although I am sometimes able to step in at short notice if you have a speaker cancellation, it is always worth asking.
