Speaker for your event - smartphone photography

Finally, a presentation topic everyone will learn and rave about!

Mike James was a guest speaker at the Victorian Small Business Festival

Finding a quality and unique speaker and topic is difficult in the social media space. They all start to sound the same! You want something unique that will have people talking about long after your event.

Everyone has a phone – and they love taking photos in their professional and personal lives.

We all share the frustration of not knowing how to easily make them look amazing and stand out.

Taking incredible images is so much more than the tap of the screen. I will show your attendees the hidden features, practical jargon-free techniques, apps and how to edit the image to create WOW photos that they are proud to post and share.

The skills learned are life-long and will be associated with your event when your attendees are confidently capturing memories and creating stories.

A little bit about me

Delivering hundreds of in-person workshops, I have combined twenty years of experience in photography and mentoring to be able to deliver extraordinary value, in an engaged and intelligent way.

Well aware of how brutal it is to sit in front of an ‘expert’ keynote speaker who reads their presentation - my style is very dynamic, passionate and inclusive of the audience. 

My infectious enthusiasm comes from being on a mission to help your attendees become more photography literate; priding myself on avoiding any technical jargon – leaving you and your audience educated, inspired and ready to create stunning images. Read more about my why and motivations.
