Predators and the quest for the perfect picture with Paul Goldstein

This year Paul Goldstein is hoping to raise over £100,000 to completely rebuild two schools housing 1000 pupils adjacent to his beloved Bandhavgarh National Park in India. Endangered and vulnerable predators matter to Paul, but ever since he saw the first one over 20 years ago, tigers have mattered in particular.

On April 26th (London Marathon) and May 29th (Everest Marathon), the tigers are going to start mattering even more. It will be ten years since Paul ran his first Marathon in his now aged, slightly fabled tiger suit. Despite hundreds of physio sessions, numerous scans, surgery and countless people telling him he should not be doing this, he is confident that both the finish lines and the charity target will be met.

In a series of lectures this year, with a completely new portfolio of images, Paul will be talking predators: tiger, jaguar, bear, cheetah, leopard, lion, puma as well as his customary brutal analysis and dissection of his efforts as he continues, unsuccessfully, on his quest to depress his shutter release on that perfect picture. There will be many PG tips on photographing as well as a lexicon of the many, often hilarious pitfalls of this ongoing photographic pilgrimage.

This is a charity lecture, door proceedings and donations will be going towards the Worth More Alive X Campaign.
