This is an on-location workshop for up to five participants and is wheelchair accessible. Tickets will go on sale on 1 August.
Join workshop leader Philip Bedford to photograph the landscapes of Brighton and Hove, with its iconic traditional seaside landmarks. We’ll tour the seafront searching out opportunities for landscape compositions using long exposures on the seafront features, the colourful seafront beach huts and the famous Palace Pier and West Pier structures of the Victorian era. You may even be lucky enough to capture the famous starling murmurations over the pier at sunset.
Participants should bring plenty of morning snacks/breakfast. We’ll stop for a coffee at a local café around 10.00am and lunch at a local pub/café at around 1.00pm.
Please bring / wear:
- Camera, Tripod and Filters
- Walking Shoes,
- Windbreaker and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions
- Snacks (as above)
- Terrain is generally quite easy. The pebbles on the beach are easy to walk on. There will be lots of walking, expect hiking of around 2-3 miles throughout the day.
- Wheelchair users are welcome to attend this event as shooting is possible from the promenade instead of from the beach. Please notify the workshop leader in advance so that he can plan accordingly.
- There are public toilets scattered across the seafront, carry some change though, some charge a small 20-50p fee. You could also use local cafes if you buy a coffee!
This will be a category C event.. Category C means events that focus on a particular skill or technique (such as long exposures, composition or night photography) and/or on getting the best from a particular location. The event leader will have good location knowledge to ensure that the best is made of the prevailing conditions and will be a skilled landscape photographer able to offer tuition at all levels. These events are usually led by professionals but sometimes by volunteer members of the landscape group.
Ticket prices for this event include a £2 carbon offsetting charge. For more information click here.
If still applicable, the workshop leader will be following safe practices in line with social distancing guidance and will require participants to do the same. Please do not attend if you do not wish to comply. If regulations allow, capacity of this event may be increased to six places.

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.
