He provides several lectures, including an enthralling evening with his print lecture, "Beyond Divine Light", combining his early "career" in photography and his passion for church photography. Having started with a 5x4 view camera, Clive now uses a combination of tilt-shift lenses, HDR and detailed attention to every part of his images.
