Winter in Constable Country (FULLY BOOKED)

Event info

This workshop, led by Justin Minns, will focus on photographing the Dedham Vale area of outstanding natural beauty, immortalised by the paintings of John Constable. There is much to interest photographers here from the timeless views of the lazily meandering River Stour to picturesque cottages and villages. Depending on the weather we may also visit the coast.

The locations suit a variety of techniques and Justin will provide tuition on composition, camera settings, using filters and anything else essential to getting the best from this area.

Walks are reasonably short (up to 20 minutes) and on flat ground but some areas will be muddy and can be slippery so walking boots or wellies are essential. It may be cold early in the morning so dress accordingly.

Please bring:

Camera & tripod
Graduated filters (optional)
Walking boots or wellies
Warm, waterproof outdoor clothing (layers are best)
Hat and gloves
Flask / food (optional)
Change for car park (approx £5)
We will break for hot drinks at a cafe and end with optional lunch (not included) or people can bring packed lunch.

This will be a category B/C event for up to six people.

Cancellation policy

Cancellation by You

If you wish to cancel your booking PLEASE let the event leader / organiser know with as much notice as possible. If nothing else, this can avoid them delaying the start of the event while they wait for you.

If you have paid for an event, please note that this fee/ticket price is non-refundable unless we are able to sell your place to somebody else. You are welcome to sell your place yourself but, again, PLEASE notify the event leader / organiser in advance of any change.

Cancellation by us

Event leaders are asked to make plans for alternative activities or locations in the case of poor weather and, in most cases, events will proceed despite poor weather unless, in the view of the event leader, the weather will lead to unacceptable safety risks or very little chance of successful photography. It is inevitable, however, that occasionally an event will be cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control.

Occasionally an event may also be cancelled owing to lack of bookings. So if you wish to attend an event, don’t leave it till the last minute to book as it may be too late.

If an event is cancelled we will give you as much notice as we are able and any payment by you to the RPS in respect of the event offered as a full refund. In the case of events cancelled because of lack of interest we will aim to give at least three weeks’ notice wherever possible.

Please note we are NOT able to refund any associated or consequential costs including but not limited to travel, accommodation, insurance premium or other costs incurred by you in order to attend the event.
