Touching the Light; a talk by Ken Scott

Event info

An online talk by Ken Scott with up to 100 places.  Tickets will go on sale on 1 September.

Ken Scott is a photographer, adventurer, speaker, and coach from Sussex, England. Ken is still best known for his mountain landscape and light photography, which spans over forty years of walking in Britain, and abroad in Corsica, the Pyrenees, North America and the Alps. Some of his mountain adventures include a crossing of the Pyrenees High Route (HRP) in 2011 and he walked solo around the coast of Britain in 2017.

In recent times Ken’s photographic repertoire has expanded to include a diversity of styles from intimate nature to abstract art, which have developed from the discipline of daily practice. In 2021 Ken will pass 5,000 consecutive days of his “365 Project”, now “project infinity”, making a picture every day.

Ken summarises the essence of his talk as follows:

“I have rarely if ever been anywhere with the sole intention of making photographs. Over nearly forty years I have discovered that if I experience a place fully, then meaningful photographs follow naturally. My photography grew up in the mountains of the UK, where I taught myself to respond to the rhythms of the land and the light, working instinctively with the landscape and intuitively with simple cameras, inspired by the work of the late and great Galen Rowell. My own brand of ‘mountain light’ photography became “Touching the Light”. In this landmark presentation, I share with you some principles and stories for BEING in the landscape, for becoming attuned to light, for going with your own flow as a photographer.”


There will be time for questions and answers at the end of the talk.

Tickets will go on sale on 1 September.  Ticket sales will close two days before the talk 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.

Event times are stated in UK time.

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.
