About this event

Overview

These are small (max 3 photographers) workshops designed to help individuals with their individual questions and astrophotography needs. As a small group Roger will address individuals questions while also having the benefit that group collaboration brings to light shared experiences, questions and solutions.

The workshops are a fun, light hearted evening in the comfortable surrounds of Perth Observatory, with a dedication to results for the participants.

Group Size

These workshops are tailored to the small number of individuals in the group.

  • Minimum group size: 1 photographer
  • Maximum group size: 3 photographers

The workshop will proceed with only one booking.

Locaiton

Cloudy Scenario

A decision will be made regarding weather when the 48 hour forcast is available and this decision will be communicated to all registered participants via the email address used in booking.

It is at the descretion of Roger Groom the organiser of this event to decide if the event will proceed or be cancelled due to weather. By booking you accept this.

Guidelines for go/no-go based on weather:

  • If the forcast for cloud is 70% or less cloud cover and no rain is forcast the event will proceed. Some cloud makes for fantastic nightscape photographs and does not detract from the workshop experience.
  • If the forcast for cloud is above 70% cloud cover or rain is forcast with greater than 40% chance for the whole period of the event window the event will be cancelled.
  • If a severe weather warning is issued for the time and place of the event, the event will be cancelled.

In the case of cloud the event will be rescheduled or cancelled dependent on participant availability. Initially an attempt will be made to reschedule the event to a nearby evening which suits the most participants, availability of Perth observatory and Roger Groom. If no rescheduled evening is suitable participants can be transferred to a future event or refunds will be made.
