Photography Walkshop - Historic Bosham
Sat 18 March 2017, 10:00 – 12:00 GMT
Through Strong Island Media we have delivered photography workshops over the last 4 years to over a 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 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 of these Walkshops from Worthing through to Bournemouth and as far north as Surrey but for the first time we’re now offering them to the budding photographers in Portsmouth. We’re blessed with a visually rich and diverse city, with harbours, beaches, woodland, wildlife and lots of heritage to explore through photography. These workshops throughout the summer will take place at different locations around the city and will involve 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. 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 (from 10am to 12pm) and cost £10 either in advance (booked online) or in person at the start of the workshop. Group size is limited to 15 per workshop. All ages welcome.
Please arrive 15 minutes early so we can start the walkshop at 10am.
Bosham is a beautiful, historic village on at the end of the Bosham Channel of Chichester Harbour. We'll be starting off in the village before making our way down to Holy Trinity Church, one of the oldest churches in Sussex. We'll explore the church grounds before making our way across the common and down to the waterline. From here we can explore the water's edge and over to the channel and sailing club sheds. We'll go back past the old mill and down to the mudflats at low tide. If we're lucky the ice-cream van will be down by the shoreline where we end up.
Expect to see a beautiful historic church, with a churchyard full of character, wide views of the channel, boats and sailors (if the tide is right), boat buildings, wide shore views and much more.
At the main Bosham carpark (pay & display). There is a bus stop right by the carpark.
This walk is about 95% wheelchair accessible, although we may go down on to the shore, which may be wet and uneven.
