'On The Streets' talk presented at Braunton Camera Club

"Thank you so much again from all our members, your talk was not only inspiring but a real education too.  Most talks are not as informative as yours so we all have lots to think about and go and put into action on the streets.  Vicky is really fired up and that's so good to see, Di loves her characters and is always chatting to someone when we are out with her so it was good for her to see that she could take it a step further."

'On The Streets' talk presented at Whitby Photographic Society

"Hi Alf, I just wanted to say thanks so much for your talk tonight. I really enjoyed it, it was great, and thanks so much for all your advice. You have so inspired me to go out with my camera this weekend, if only for a couple of hours. I love the idea of a project too. The cute couple's story was great. Let us know the next time you come to Whitby - maybe we could tie it in with either a walkabout or perhaps some real-life presentation. Helen"

"HUGE thanks to Alf Myers Alf Myers for a thoroughly entertaining evening of street photography last night on Camversation! I can't believe it was nearly three hours as I was glued the whole time. If you have any desire to share great street work with your clubs, then I'd highly recommend him to you.

It's no exaggeration to say I've received over twenty messages this morning complimenting the evening.

Thanks again for your wonderful talk Alf and the support from everyone else. A great crowd."

Palace Shield Annual Dinner -

I had the pleasure of being the photographer at the Palace Shield Annual Dinner the other week. There were lots of local cricket club members in attendance who were there celebrating their season and hoping to bring home another award or trophy. One of the members had an article published in the Blackpool Gazette -

"Just a note to thank you on behalf of the committee for coming to our club to deliver your Street Photography talk.  It was very well received and created much interest amongst members, not least because your style of delivery quickly got them thinking and asking questions -- we don't always enjoy such involvement with our lecturers.  A very enjoyable evening, thank you once again."

"Just a quick word of thanks for your talk on Thursday. It is clear that all our members appreciated it and one has even posted his thanks on our facebook page - which is unusual even when people like a talk. It dealt with a number of issues around street photography very sympathetically and illustrated what can be done without intruding into people's lives in any negative way. So thank you."

'On The Streets' talk presented at Blackburn District Camera Club - 

"This mail is to acknowledge once more your talk you gave yesterday evening to Blackburn District Camera Club.

It was full of great content and gave us lots to think about.

Personally, it has inspired me to have a go - particularly on my frequent visits to London, although what I mainly see is the tube between Euston and Southgate stations. Maybe it will encourage me to take a later train back and do more before returning to Blackburn.

I know, through talking to people after the meeting, that many of our members were very impressed with all that you spoke about and the pictures you shared with us.

I wish you all the best and much enjoyment in any of your future photography endeavours.

Thanks once again, Nan"

Thanks again"

The wedding of the now Nancy and Andy Phillips - 

"I always think one of the best reviews/comments you can receive is by your fellow photographers. It's totally humbling and at the same time a big heart/mind boost. We (myself & my hubby) picked Alf for our Wedding Photographer. I'm a Wedding Photographer, hubby is a Landscape Photographer and we both came out with the same name when asked. Always a good sign, haha!!

On the day, Alf was prompt, smart, polite, quirky and quietly funny. He is also the master of Black & White photography and off the wall scenes. If you want boring, go look at the multitudes of photographers who blend into a generic greyness of weddings-vile-ville. If you want different, then pick Alf.

I love that our whole wedding is in mono. You only get one chance with Wedding Photography, don't scrimp. Don't pick a wedding photographer because your best mate recommended them. Go check out a full days wedding by who takes your fancy. Go with your gut, go with your good feelings. dare to be different!!!!!

Many thanks Alf!!!!! xxx "

'On The Streets' talk presented at Eden Valley Camera Club - 

"Thank you so much for your presentation to our Club on Monday.

You pitched it just right for our members!!

Starting with suggestions on how to go about taking street photography, what to consider, the legal aspects etc- were really helpful and very much appreciated.

Think the only comment I would make about that half ( but think you said you already have plans to do this??) is that if you could add some photos in with that first half to illustrate examples- it would help to make it seem less heavy in terms of just absorbing facts on the screen.

The feedback from members has been very positive – it went down better than I had expected as hadn’t been sure how many would be interested in that type of photography- but think you converted some that maybe wouldn’t have tried it before!!

But they all enjoyed seeing your different images and I am certain more inspired to give it more of a go that have done before.

Ness texted me to say she “thought the subject was really interesting and that Alf was good and so passionate about what he does and gave good advice too” – so that says it all!!!"
