7 June 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - South London Photographic Society
I would like to thank you very much for your very intersting talk last night. The feed back has been superb. The maps showing us where to go and the images taken at these places were excellent! I thought it was a brilliant idea to include some bird song of some of the species shown. It brings the image to life. For us in London, visiting some of the locations, such as the Rutland Water Nature Reserve will mean an overnight stay (or two) but will be well worth the effort. Now that lockdown is easing, my shutter finger is itching to go so I'm looking at a visit to the Wetlands Centre in Barnes on the banks of the Thames. Perhaps a club outing? Best wishes Den. President SLPS
I couldn't make Monday night so Ive just watched your recording. Excellent presentation adding so much more information with locations & knowledge of your subjects etc Thank you,. Kind regards Pat Couder CPAGB BPE1 QPSA
4 June 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - Reading Camera Club
Many thanks for your entertaining and informative talk for Reading Camera Club yesterday evening, which was very well received by our members and guests. I know the details of the images that you gave were much appreciated by the audience. It was a great demonstration of how local knowledge is so important for finding the best images. I was delighted to see the Grey Wagtail - I saw a bird the other week that was either a Grey or a Yellow Wagtail and I wasn't sure which but having seen your picture am more confident that it was a Grey!

25 May 2021 - "My Lockdown Garden 2020" - Thurrock Camera Club
Firstly I wanted to drop you this quick note to say thank you for your presetnation last night and especially for giving up your time for free to our club. Your presetnation was enjoyed by all of our members that attended and they appreciated both your dedication and enthusiasm to maintaining your hobby while confined during lockdown, both of which were conveyed by your talk. It was great to hear how you were able to attract a good variety of bird species, along with insects to an urban garden and the images presented, along with the details of how they were captured, have certainly inspired a number of our members to revisit the photographic opportunities available to them in the own gardens.
As promised we will be recommending your talk to other local clubs over the coming weeks. Secondly, as mentioned we would be delighted if you would be available to provide a further talk to the club during our centenary season which commences in September. At the moment I only have one open date , being 12th April 2022. I appreciate that this is still a long way off but it would be excellent news if you would be available for that evening to give us your talk "Where I photograph wildlife in the UK" which we would anticipate running via zoom. I welcome your thoughts on whether you might be available for this date. In the meantime thanks again for giving us a very enjoyable evening. Best Regards, David
17 May 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - Blythe Bridge Camera Club
Just wanted to say thank you again for the talk you gave to the members of Blythe Bridge Camera Club last night. It was very well received by our members.

Best regards Alan Lovatt, Treasurer/Vice President, Blythe Bridge Camera Club

Just wanted to say your presentation was excellent. You should publish a book. David john Gloucester camera club member
10 May 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - Coventry Photographic Society
Just minutes before you finished your excellent talk to Coventry PS this evening I had a power failure , which cut me off. I was disappointed because I wanted to congratulate you on a brilliant and comprehensive selection of pictures of wildlife. I was also intrigued by the fact that you used a high ISO in most cases to enable you to obtain a suitable shutter speed. Showing this info was a brilliant idea and extremely interesting and helpful. Congratulations and many thanks - apologies for having to leave slightly earlier because of the wretched power failure. All best wishes. John Morgan (Cov PS)
On behalf of Coventry Photographic Society, I would like to thank you for giving us your lecture ‘Where I photograph wildlife in the UK’, last Monday. It was very well received by our members. I have had many comments appreciating you including information on your camera settings, and locations used. This is particularly helpful to a number of our members who are fairly new to club photography, and the sort of help they have been requesting. As my own primary interest is in nature photography, your lecture was particularly interesting for me, and I was very impressed by the quality of your images. It has been a definite advantage of Zoom that we are able to book photographers outside our normal area. The fact you gave your lecture free of charge was greatly appreciated by our Treasurer! I hope we will be able to see some more of your work in the future. Best wishes, Terry Bailey CPAGB
7 May 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - Brentwood & DistrictPhotographic Club
On behalf of the Brentwood & District Photographic Club I would like to thank you for your great talk last night. We were amazed at the quality and quantity of your presentation and I know that our members were impressed with your work. Our Chair, Julie Hutson contacted me to suggest that as we enjoyed your talk so much perhaps we can offer a donation to you, or your favorite charity, (perhaps RSPB), to show our appreciation.
Many thanks, Phil Ricketts ARPS Programme Secretary
5 May 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - Wellington & District Camera Club
Thank you so much for your hugely informative and professional talk on Wednesday, to Wellington and friends. What a range of birds we saw, and beautifully photographed. I can appreciate how many hours and years it took to assemble this. The bird song as well was lovely to hear.
I am hoping to make a book for the club on this year of zoom, and wonder if I may use your flier/s and a couple of photos in it please? You choose! Thank you again, very much for such a lovely evening.

27 April 2021 - "My Lockdown Garden 2020" - Ryton Camera Club
Can I say a big thank you for a very informative talk last night. Not only were the images superb but your comments and the tech info provided, made for a very entertaining evening. Your self isolation period was put to good use and I am sure provided much entertainment in a "dark" period. Given the opportunity, you like us I am sure would have been travelling but needs must and at lest your time was not wasted as a beautiful period of life has been recorded. Perhaps sometimes we don't stop and enjoy our surroundings enough as we always rush from one thing to the next. We all much appreciated the time and dedication you have put into bringing your garden into our homes.

Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed your presentation last night. So many beautiful images and birds and butterflies that most of us would give our right arm to see, let alone photograph. It was wonderful having such detailed information with regards to both location and settings. I have had numerous calls to ask me to pass on the members thanks.

Malcolm showed us how he setup from start to finish and each image that was shown also showed his camera settings.

A great evening which was thoroughly enjoyed, we look forward to meeting Malcolm later in the year for another of his many talks.... Roy Rogers

On behalf of Focus Photography Club I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Malcolm for an excellent presentation, 'My Lockdown Garden 2020'. A superb presentation that, unlike others, has the images presented in chronological order, starting in early Spring through to Autumn. A classic example of the wildlife that can be attracted to our 'Lockdown' gardens. Again many thanks Malcolm for a superb, stunning and highly recommended presentation.
23 February 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - Market Harborough Photographic Society
Last night at MHPS, we hosted Malcolm Hupman, who gave a talk on his wildlife photography work. The presentation was well put together, with many images well supported by information and helpful detail.
I had previously seen Malcolm deliver a presentation face to face, and it didn't lose much when delivered on Zoom. A very good evening and we will be making a presentation to L&RWT, Osprey Camera fund at Rutland Water, on his behalf.
11 February 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - Ormskirk Camera Club
Thank you so much for your excellent talk last night. Your photos of birds are absolutely stunning and the information you gave was invaluable. Members were really impressed and thank you for inspiring them to get out there and find places around and about. On a personal note I have been to some of the places you mentioned but I will be visiting others when I can get down to see my friend in Market Harborough. Today although cold it is sunny and dry so I’ve found a place local to me called the Wigan Flashes so I’m going to go and have a walk there with my camera. Thank you again for a wonderful talk.

18 January 2021 - "Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK" - Swinton and District Photographic Society
Just a brief message to say for myself and fellow members a huge thank you for your excellent, informative and thoroughly enjoyable presentation to us tonight. As I and others agreed, not only were the selection of images shown to us of a particularly high standard but so were your details and information of the subjects contained and the locations they can be found in. As things stand currently and if the lockdowns continue past May we would have no hesitation whatsoever in requesting you to present another of your talks to us again, subject to your availability of course. My sincere thanks and best wishes. Keep safe. Keith

Thanks Malcolm for a great show. It must have taken hours to produce, every detail from the image sizing, catch lines around the edges, maps, camera setting info and even the bird sounds.. Brilliant..

Just a line to say thank you so much for your brilliant presentation on Friday. Obviously a lot of thought and preparation had gone into this presentation and the photography was superb.

This was just lovely, Thank you for inviting me. Pictures were spectacular but I think it's the story that got to me. How you started with pigeons and ended with the butterflies and house mouse.

I want to thank you for your superb talk on Tuesday. So much information and advice along with your wonderful images. made a truly remarkable evening.

4 January 2021 - “An Australasian Adventure and its Wildlife” - Wrexham and District Photographic Society
We all thoroughly enjoyed – and were inspired – by your Zoom talk last night. Every week I put a report on the WDPS web-site about the previous presentation, and I like to illustrate these with an image. Could you let me have one of your images for this please. We do, of course, acknowledge the photographer. I cannot think which would best represent your talk, but perhaps the huge Wedge Tailed Eagle is the – to most people- one that represents Australia. (Personally I am attracted to the beautifully named Superb Fairy-Wren). Again many thanks.
Peter Emerson, hon. Sec, WDPS.
16 December 2020 - “Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK” - Lutterworth Photographic Society Co-op
Many thanks for such a great night last night. I'm sure you will have gathered that we have quite a few keen wildlife photographers among our members and we were all so impressed with your presentation. Not only were the pictures great, but the detailed information you shared alongside them was quite unique in my experience. This will surely result in many of us visiting those wildlife sites, enjoying the natural world and maybe bringing home a special picture or two as a bonus. I hope we'll see you again soon.

Very many thanks for your talk yesterday evening. It really went very well. I really liked the way you introduced the two starling birds - eating out of your hand ! And I really liked your close-up images. Very detailed and very sharp. So many thanks again. Cheers,.
4 November 2020 - "My Lockdown Garden" - Corby Photographic Club
We were really delighted with your “ My Lockdown Garden” presentation. Not only were the photos amazing but we also learnt a great deal about some of the habits of your bird life. Harry recognised a lot of the birds you showed but not the detail that you went into. It was very evident that you must have spent many, many hours putting it together and “ your presenter’s voice” was most professional. Well done.
Harry and Jan Chisholm (Sydney Australia)
Thank you for a very enjoyable evening last night.

I am just putting the programme together for next year so hopefully will be in touch to ask you for a return visit."

"Firstly, I would just like to say that I very much enjoyed your presentation last night and liked your use of maps detailing your various stages of your tour.
Considering you were not on a focused photography tour you came back with some quality images with a good variety of species.
18 September 2020 - “Where I Photograph Wildlife in the UK” - Leicester and Leicestershire Photographic Society
"I am very pleased that I was able to listen and watch in to your talk on Friday night to LLPS as it was absolutely marvellous.
I thought all your images were stunning-so clear and bright and it is a great thrill to see smaller birds as I find a lot of bird photographers show the bigger species. And your clear well paced talk was ideal. "

I have also had 2 emails already from members saying how much they enjoyed it, So many many thanks for such a wonderful night.
