THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED BECAUSE OF COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS).
A six night stay on the beautiful Isles of Lewis and Harris, led by a Landscape Group member who lives on the island and knows it well. Weather permitting the trip will visit all the usual photographic ‘hot spots’ plus some that very few people know of or visit. Transport will be provided to and from all the photographic locations. This will be at your own risk.
Please note that this is a photographic tour, not a workshop.
Maximum participants : 6
Meals : Breakfasts and packed lunches will be provided from 17 October through to 22 October. Evening meals will be provided from 16 October through to 21 October These are included in the ticket price. All drinks are the responsibility of the attendee.
Clothing and equipment : Waterproof clothing and boots (walking boots preferred to wellingtons), warm layered clothing (this is the Outer Hebrides and you can literally get 4 seasons in one day). Please don’t forget the sun cream!
Challenges and accessibility : The trip will visit several coastal locations and will include rocky terrain. The terrain is not suitable for people of limited mobility. Please also ensure you bring along appropriate bags for carrying your photographic equipment.
Toilet facilities : There are some toilets available at the accommodation, some of the more popular hot-spots, otherwise it’s the nearest bush!
Additional costs : Travel to / from the meeting point in Stornoway is not included in the ticket price, nor is the cost of drinks throughout the trip
Other considerations : We recommend that you don’t book your travel to/from Stornoway until we have confirmed that the trip will go ahead (please see “Cancellation by us”, below). We will do this by 1 June or earlier if possible. Please do not offer lifts unless you have suitable insurance cover, or your passengers accept lifts at their own risk.
This will be a category B event for up to 6 people. These are events where the event leader has a good knowledge of the location but is also willing to offer general technical support and advice to inexperienced photographers. The event leader is NOT expected to be an expert but should be sufficiently experienced to pass on knowledge of the basics.
- 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.
