An online talk by Lucinda Grange with up to 100 places.
The image above is a genuine self portrait by English adventure photographer Lucinda Grange sitting on one of the eagles that adorn one of New York City's most well known buildings; the Chrysler.

Lucinda has travelled the world, scaling some of the tallest and most iconic structures and buildings. Amongst her list of climbs is the Great Pyramid, Firth of Forth Rail Bridge and the Tyne Bridge in Newcastle. Her work has been published by the BBC, New York Post, The Independent and The Guardian and exhibited in the Museum of London and the National Football Museum to name but a few. Lucinda's approach to photography utilises high points within the landscape with beauty, fragility and fear all present and tangible within her work. It has been said that her images 'challenge the viewer to reconsider the environment they find themselves in.'

In this fascinating talk Lucinda will discuss her motivations and inspiration as well as stories of gaining access to these high places (usually without permission) and, of course, the photographic challenges and techniques involved in creating her images.

- 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.
