Event description

Description

Through Strong Island Media we have delivered photography workshops over the last 6 years to over two thousand people of all ages and abilities across the south coast. Working with Chichester Harbour Conservancy, University of Portsmouth, Making Space, Hampshire Cultural Trust plus many schools and youth groups. Over time we’ve developed 'Walkshops', where rather than sitting down in a classroom you actively learn different photography skills and techniques out and about with your camera, with support from a professional photographer.


We’ve delivered dozens and dozens of these Walkshops from Worthing through to Bournemouth and as far north as Surrey and from the summer of 2015 we have run a very successful series of summer walkshops in and around Southsea & Portsmouth. We’re blessed with a visually rich and diverse city, with harbours, beaches, woodland, wildlife and lots of heritage to explore through photography. This workshop involves a leisurely 2 hour walk with fun & creative photo activities allowing you to find out much more about your camera and how to get the best out from it in the future. We’ll be looking at composition, perspectives, textures, leading lines, creating narrative and also how to take control of aperture and shutter speed.

Walkshops are 2 hours long and cost £10 either paid either in advance online with PayPal or in person at the start of the workshop (please book online for both). Group size is limited to 15 per workshop. All ages welcome, if under 16 please be accompanied by an adult. Pleae arrive up to 15 minutes early for a prompt start for the walkshop.


With this special photography walkshop we will be shooting our photos with 35mm film. We will explore around Old Portsmouth's The Camber, the historic heart of the city and still a busy marina and sea fishing port. We will be working from the basics of loading the film through to how to operate a manual or semi-automatic camera, manual focusing, using built in light meters, composition and much more.

Please bring a 35mm film camera and enough film for the 2 hour walkshop (recommend 3+ rolls, feel free to bring any brand, monochrome, etc. but please aim for 100-400iso film). Film can be purchased at local camera shops (such as London Camera Exchange) and online, including Amazon, eBay and photography websites. We can lend you a camera if you like but it is first come first served and please get in contact to book one. We have a range of SLRs and then rangefinder cameras. Please bring your own film to load in to the borrowed camera. You will need to develop your films yourself.

Expect to discover the joy of photography with 35mm film looking at the great views of the Camber, light reflecting off the water, fishing boats, rust and rope and much more.
