Event info

This workshop focuses on the creative use of shutter speed to add impact to your landscapes. We will be using ND filters to control the shutter speed and looking at the different effects possible.

Workshop leader Justin Minns will provide tuition on composition, camera settings, using filters and anything else essential to getting the best from this technique.

We will have a break for hot drinks / quick lunch at a cafe or people can bring packed lunch.

Please bring / wear:

  • Packed lunch & hot drinks (optional)
  • Loose change for car parks and public toilets
  • Camera, charged batteries, memory card
  • Shutter release cable
  • Tripod
  • 6- and 10-stop neutral density filters (if you have them)
  • Graduated neutral density filters (if you have them)
  • Warm and waterproof clothing suitable for the weather, location and time of year
  • Wellies (ideal) or waterproof walking boots

Venue Information

There are toilets at all locations.

Free parking is available at all locations.

Walks are fairly short and easy; most are 2 minutes from the road on a sandy beach, longest walk is around 20 minutes and there is some clambering on rocks at one location for the best view.  However, this workshop is suitable for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility as there are also views from the beach and the promenade.


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.
