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.


All you have to do is bring along your camera to take part. It can be anything from a digital compact through to an SLR and if you want to shoot 35mm film, cool! If you don’t have your own camera we have a selection of digital compacts you are free to borrow for the workshop (please let us know in advance). We can even offer 35mm SLRs for you to use if you like. Even if you just bring along your cameraphone you’ll learn loads that’ll make a big difference to your mobile photography.


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.


We will explore the beach in Eastney that sits where the entrance to Langstone Harbour meets The Solent. We'll start of meeting at the entrance to the public carpark that is next to the public slipway before you get to the Eastney Cruising Association on Ferry Road (see HERE) and begin exploring the shoreline south to the concrete pier. We'll take photos along the pier as it juts out in to the harbour entrance before making our way down on to the beach. We'll photography under and around the pier and the other concrete structures on the low tide beach before walking down and exploring around the old fortifications.

Expect to see a busy harbour with many different types of boats, view out in to The Solent, concrete textures worn by the sea and nature, low tide beach and much more.

Meet at:

The entrance to the public carpark by the public slipway, which is the right hand turning on Ferry Road, past Southsea Marina on the left (as you travel out to Eastney point) and before the Eastney Cruising Association entrance on the right. Parking is free. The nearest bus stop is right by the turning to the carpark, route 16.

Notes:

This walk is not very wheelchair accessible, with very poor surfaces and shingle beach.
