Mono Moods is a digital mono presentation showing a large selection of my mono photography.  It is a genre that I find particularly satisfying, principally because, from my own point of view, I have to work harder at it. For me the process of envisioning a mono image is one of reductionism, reducing the image to it’s most simple and fundamental constituents and the epitome of this is the mono minimalist image. An important influence on my own image making has been Michael Kenna who’s work I find captivating and very emotive.


Creating an image from one or two elements can be challenging because each element has to work perfectly. But it can be very rewarding!

The talk covers a number of genres including landscape, seascape, long exposure, architecture and Infrared with a particular emphasis on long exposure photography.

I will also share my techniques, vision, camera setting and use of filters. This talk also includes a 20 minute Photoshop demonstration from the raw file to the finished image to show a 'before' and 'after'.

Cancellation policy

Cancellation by You

If you wish to cancel your booking PLEASE let the event leader / organiser know with as much notice as possible. If nothing else, this can avoid them delaying the start of the event while they wait for you.

Cancellation by us

Event leaders are asked to make plans for alternative activities or locations in the case of poor weather and, in most cases, events will proceed despite poor weather unless, in the view of the event leader, the weather will lead to unacceptable safety risks or very little chance of successful photography. It is inevitable, however, that occasionally an event will be postponed or cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control. If an event is postponed we will transfer your booking to the rearranged event, with the option of a refund if the rescheduled date is not suitable for you.

Occasionally an event may also be cancelled owing to lack of bookings. So if you wish to attend an event, don’t leave it till the last minute to book as it may be too late.

If an event is cancelled we will give you as much notice as we are able and any payment by you to the RPS in respect of the event offered as a full refund. In the case of events cancelled because of lack of interest we will aim to give at least three weeks’ notice wherever possible.

Please note we are NOT able to refund any associated or consequential costs including but not limited to travel, accommodation, insurance premium or other costs incurred by you in order to attend the event.
