Why not use this time of lockdown to have a professional photographer cast their eye over some of your images?
Others always see strengths and weaknesses in our images that we fail to see ourselves, not least because of emotional connection to our own work, and so a second opinion is almost always helpful. But having that feedback from a professional who is working with images all the time can be truly invaluable.
Sarah Howard is a full time professional landscape photographer and runs Image Seen, offering landscape photography workshops all over the UK as well as in Europe. She is a regular contributor to the photographic press and is currently working on her second book; ‘Photographing the Cotswolds’, part of the FotoVue series of photo location guidebooks.
There will be a number private one-to-one sessions available throughout the day lasting one hour each. Once you have booked a place you will be invited to send up to 15 of your processed landscape images to Sarah who will review your images in advance of your appointment. As an experienced tutor, Sarah will be able to give advice on aspects such as composition, use of light, filters, and any strengths or weaknesses in your image, as well as any feedback on your post production if relevant.
During your review, which will be conducted by live two-way video link using Zoom, Sarah will offer feedback on each of your images individually and, if appropriate, collectively as a body of work.
Participants should note that some images will, inevitably, demand more discussion than others and there is no guarantee that all of your images will be considered during the session. In all probability between 8 and 12 images will be covered.
Following your review, Sarah will send you brief notes of the feedback they gave.
Participants should also note that these reviews are not intended as alternatives to formal distinctions advice available through the RPS and Sarah will not give advice in this regard.
To take part in a review you will need:
• a computer with webcam and microphone
• a reasonable internet connection
• to download and install the Zoom application on your computer. You will not need a Zoom subscription.
A link to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed to you a day or two in advance of your appointment.
When booking you should book one paid ticket appropriate to your RPS membership status and one free ticket to indicate your choice of appointment time. Please do not book more than one appointment time as this will prevent others from making bookings.
All timings are stated at UK times.
Please note: your personal data (name, email address and telephone number) that you supply when booking an event will be passed to the event / workshop leader in order to enable them to:

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.
