Thank you so much for your ‘Shackleton’ talk last night. It was good to meet you and I have had lots of e-mails and telephone calls from Members asking me to say A VERY BIG THANK YOU for the fantastic presentation and your incredible images – they all thoroughly enjoyed it. I have been looking on your website and picked a couple of talks to bring to the Committee for the future.
Thank you for taking our U3A group to Venice and its wonderful Carnival this afternoon. Your presentation was both interesting and beautiful and much appreciated by your audience. I look forward to your next visit to us.
Brian’s ‘Stinkers, Pintados and Mollymocks’ talk to RSPB Shropshire Local Group, was a superb event. His wonderful photos showing the magnificent albatross and petrels in their unique Southern Ocean environment, combined with his knowledge, anecdotes and enthusiasm, made it an evening to remember.
Dear Brian, thank you for coming to St. Saviour’s, on Friday evening – St Andrews Night – to give your appropriately titled presentation ‘Recollections of a Scot in Antarctica’. A thoroughly excellent and informative evening enjoyed by all and on which we raised a good sum for the church.
Marlborough College’s Memorial Hall Festival 2018 has been many things but perhaps one of the most persuasive aspects has been it’s variety of events. Brian Anderson’s brilliant illustrated talk which traced Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated attempt to cross Antarctica and the amazing icebound drama that followed between 1914 -17, was a great example of that variety and utterly fascinating with it.
Brian has a wonderfully engaging and personable method of presentation and he sweeps you along with his enthusiasm and wit. To support his story he offered original expedition photographs by Frank Hurley alongside his own stunning wildlife and landscape images from his icebreaker visits to Antarctica, most notably to the Weddell Sea, Elephant Island and Grytviken in South Georgia, key locations on Shackleton’s expedition.
Altogether then, a most absorbing and intriguing contribution by Brian to our wonderful Festival.
Superb talk on Monday Brian. Really enjoyed your Falkland Islands presentation and your fabulous wildlife images. Will hopefully see you at a future talk with us.
I’m in North Uist still going North. Here for the third time so I already have many photos. However the light is always different and inspired by your MCSS 2018 course I’m enjoying my camera again. Thanks Brian.
Thank you Brian for your very interesting Photography Composition course and for the information slides. I have now to work at improving my photo taking. I also enjoyed your North Pole lecture and the beautiful photos you picked to go with it in the impressive Marlborough College Memorial Hall.
Oh and thank you for the 133 photos you circulated – a great assortment fof our course images showing shape, line, form, patterns, colour, texture, and especially for taking time to improve some of them through cropping and tweaking and even adding an absent person to a photo!l
Thanks Brian. I enjoyed your MCSS 2018 course, ‘An Eye For A Picture’ a lot; it has made me look differently at things with my camera since. I am a slow learner so hope to catch up one day with all the tips and techniques you gave us.
I thoroughly enjoyed Brian’s ‘Exploring Photo Genres’ course at Marlborough College Summer School 2018. He inspired me to look and do things with my camera I would never otherwise have done. He has a wealth of practical experience.
