TALK: Exploring the infinite

Event info

Exploring the Infinite - Composition as the distribution of feel; an online talk by Alister Benn with up to 100 places.  Tickets will go on sale on 1 July.

There are many ways to approach the art of composition, from rigid templates of aesthetic norms and standards, to emotionally free flowing abstracts with seemingly little order. In this online talk Alister Benn will discuss an alternative approach to composition, where each image becomes not only subjects and light, but feel and emotional articulation. The words feel and mood mean more to a viewer than rock and tree.

Alister Benn is a Scottish landscape photographer, writer and musician. He runs Expressive Photography Ltd. with his wife Ann Kristin. Alister currently lives on the far west of Scotland, but for 15 years lived and worked in south east Asia, China and Tibet.

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

Tickets will go on sale on 1 July.  Ticket sales will close on 7 September 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.
