Over the past several years I've been asked to give a variety of talks on various topics.  Below are some of the talks in my library. I'm available with sufficient notice to speak.  My radius is about 100 miles from Stamford.  

 

In addition, I'm a certified PPA Instructor.  I offer PPA-sponsored full-day workshops at least twice a year.  Currently, I'm offering a 6-hour course combination of night photography and an introduction to astrophotography.  Please contact me if you have an interest in this.  The next full-day course is scheduled for September 11, 2021.  Please email me at [email protected] for information.
