Event info

A journey through infrared photography with Simon Weir


This will be an online talk with up to 100 places.  

Ticket sales will close on 19th July to allow time to process bookings and send the video link to participants.  A link to join the talk will be emailed to participants shortly after this.

For almost 20 years Simon Weir has been travelling the world photographing in infrared. His black and white landscape images, captured entirely with light humans cannot see, have a sense of drama that goes beyond conventional photography and reveal hidden connections with their locations.

In this presentation Simon will explore the 100 year history of infrared photography, look at the science behind infrared imaging and camera conversion, and will take you on a journey across the globe in infrared.

Whether you have experimented in infrared yourself or always thought this technique was not for you be sure to attend this unique webinar and discover the fantastic world of infrared photography.

Simon Weir is a professional photographer and film maker and a regularly gives workshops and lectures to RPS groups and camera clubs around the UK. His work has been published internationally in magazines and online, and featured by both Nikon and Fujifilm in the UK.

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 postponed or cancelled for this or another reason beyond the RPS’s control. If an event is postponed we will transfer your booking to the rearranged event, with the option of a refund if the rescheduled date is not suitable for you.

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.
