Please play the YouTube video above. This is an example of the travel Audio Visual shows that I do. I am able to come to your club or organisation to give a talk on travel, history and several other topics. I can offer just Audio Visual shows or slide Illustrated talks or a combination of both. Please see my media page for examples of my photography. I am a member of the I.A.C. (Institute of Amateur Cinematographers, The Film & Video Institute) and am fully licensed to give Audio Visual presentations. 
(MCPS Licence No. 7652 and BPI/Phonographic Performance Licence No. 8002).
I do hope that you enjoy the presentation.
