Talk: Stumbling around in the dark

Event info

An online talk by Robert Harvey ARPS EFIAP CEnv CSci MCIWEM with up to 100 places. 

 

Digital photography enables us to capture the beauty of the night sky in unprecedented detail. In this evening of landscape astrophotography, Robert Harvey shows how to use an ordinary digital single lens reflex camera to make stunning images of stars, planets, earth's moon and the Milky Way, as well as more elusive astronomical phenomena such as meteors and eclipses.

Time permitting, Robert will also discuss photographing the aurora borealis and total solar eclipses.

Professional photographer Robert Harvey holds the Excellence award of the Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique. He is inspired by remote locations such as coasts, mountains and deserts, where untamed land is sculpted by natural elements. HIs photographic schedules are often dictated by sunrise, sunset, moon, tides and weather.

Based in Wiltshire, Robert leads photography tours throughout Britain, as well as overseas. He regularly lectures to specialist photographic audiences around the country and is the author of several books on photography and astronomy including “Photographing the Heavens” (2019), “Night Sky” (2019) and “Photographing Wiltshire” (2020).

 

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

Tickets will go on sale on 1 April.  Ticket sales will close on 10 July 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.
