Photography Talk with Simon Gaddes

A Quiet Life Talk by Simon Gaddes at The Steel Rooms

A Quiet Focus Photography Talk with Simon Gaddes

Date: Saturday 4th November

Time: 1.45pm – A 60 – 90 minute talk

Cost: £5 per person or included in £10 cost of monthly photo hub

More about Simon

Simon goes back to basics and uses a single camera and lens when it comes to capturing his subjects, his own tiny little revolt against the complex, modern photography world. He specialises in close up work with a little landscape and portraiture thrown in, making images of subjects that we may ordinarily pass by, in conditions that are momentary and unique. True to his image making philosophy there is little desktop post production in Simon’s work, time is spent making the image not at a PC screen at his Retford home.
Simon’s informal talk will cover his development and practical approach to subjects with his own images shown throughout.

Look at some of his previous work here in his Quiet Life Photographs.
