British fashion and celebrity photographer John Swannell is due to give a talk at the Royal Geographical Society in London on 8 April.

The talk is part of the PhotoVoice Photographers? Lecture Series whose spokesman said: ?John Swannell will talk about his extraordinary life in pictures ? from his subtly lit portraits of the British monarchy to his classically composed nudes and distinctive panoramic rural landscapes?.

Swannell will also be on hand to sign copies of his latest book, Nudes, 1978-2006.

?He has also generously offered himself as a raffle prize ? the lucky winner of which will enjoy a one-off opportunity to spend a day with him in his studio,? add organisers.

Tickets cost £10 in advance and £15 on the door. The event starts at 7pm.

The Royal Geographical Society is located at 1 Kensington Gore, London SW7 2AR.
