Forth Bridge 2000Px

Bridges and piers of south Fife

Event info

A socially distanced online / on-location workshop for 6 participants.  Tickets will go on sale on 8 January.


A virtual workshop exploring bridges and piers along the south Fife coastline. This approach to location-based landscape workshops offers you all the key creative and technical support you need from a workshop leader whilst enabling you to fully comply with social distancing requirements. It will comprise three elements:

- a detailed online briefing with the workshop leader (via Zoom)

- individual (unaccompanied) on-location photographic shoot at a time to suit you

- follow-up online image review and critique.

Led by professional photographer David Queenan, the workshop is based on locations along the south Fife coastline from North Queensferry to Aberdour. It’s possible to visit all three locations in one day as they’re not too far apart but you may wish to spread your photography over two or more days in order to time your visits to coincide with high tides and sunrise or sunset. All this will be explained in the pre-shoot video seminar that David will give via Zoom.

In the initial video meeting David will provide an introduction to the locations showing examples of his work, discussing practical issues around parking, public facilities, tides and sun positions along with camera techniques that he recommends. This is an interactive session and you can ask David anything you like as he will not only show you examples of his work but help you plan your own visit to the locations.

The locations David has lined up for you are: the Forth Bridges from various viewpoints around North Queensferry, the pier at Carlingnose Point, North Queensferry and the pier at Hawkcraig Point, Aberdour.

After you have completed your location shoot and any image processing, you will meet again online with David and the other participants to share your images and receive feedback from David.

In planning your day(s) out, you should expect to take/wear:
- all your usual camera gear, tripod & filters.
- 6 or 10 stop ND filters are recommended but not essential
- wellies are recommended.
- waterproof trousers, and coats should it rain.
- lunch and refreshments.

Ticket prices for this event include a £2 carbon offsetting charge.  For more information click here.

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.
