I have recently prepared a talk devised specifically for Camera Clubs. The talk is called ‘Me and My Mono’ and lasts approximately 2 hours which allows for a short interval. The first half is an eclectic mix of monochrome images from a variety of genres taken over a number of years; from the time I switched from ‘colour’ to ‘black and white’ right up until the current day. The second half of the presentation is about my approach to photographic projects both short and long term and the results and satisfaction that can be enjoyed by making bodies of work.
A comment from Richard J Veitch BA BSc(Hons) CEng MIET & Chairman Horndean Camera Club. (Jan 2019)
Alan’s presentation “Me and My Mono” demonstrated his passion for his photography and the craft with which he delivers his images. He talks with great confidence about how he developed his personal style and interacted knowledgeably and with great humour with his audience. He also replied to questions about his technique clearly and fully. I can wholeheartedly recommend Alan Frost ARPS to deliver an informative and entertaining talk.
And a comment from Alan Fitzgerald the Chairman of Middleton Camera Club. (Feb 2019)
‘Thank you for your very stimulating presentation on Monday. It is the first time for ages that we have had such a refreshing talk and all the more so because it enabled us to have a very good insight into the advantages of using monochrome for certain situations which many of us would only have taken in colour. The feedback I have received so far has been very, very positive and I know that some members have already been out into the field to try out ideas in black and white, inspired by your talk.’

“Personally I have to say that I honestly felt that your talk was one of the best and most inspirational that I have seen in my 15 or so years with the club. Indeed as we started out time away as soon as I took my camera out of the bag I was trying to find images that would work in monochrome.”
A comment from Jim Pascoe BA(Hons) in photography, ABIPP, ARPS – Chairman of Highcliffe and Infinity Camera Club. (Nov 2021)
“What a superb evening – one of the very best I’ve attended over my 23 years in the club world. It is rare to find a photographer who has a clear idea to communicate with their pictures, and even rarer that they can then articulate those thoughts to an audience. You excelled on both counts.”
If speaking in Dorset, Hampshire or West Sussex I charge £100 plus travel expenses. If your club is further away please contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
