Event description

Description

Through Strong Island Media we have delivered photography workshops over the last 5 years to over a thousand people of all ages and abilities across the south coast. Working with organisations such as 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.

A Strong Island photo walkshop 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 plus much more. A walkshop is for all ages & abilities, and is a great way to enjoy time with fellow photographers.

All you have to do is bring along your camera to take part. It can be anything from a cameraphone to 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 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 (if under 16, please be accompanied by an adult).

Please arrive 15 minutes early.

Itchenor is an old village that is a hub for sailing right on Chichester Harbour. We will begin the walk by meeting at the Chichester Harbour Conservancy harbour office before exploring down on to the shoreline, looking at the small craft on the shore and the yachts out at the water. We'll make our way down on to the main pontoon and photography the harbour channel before making our way back to the shore and down and through the historic shipyard before making our way through to the shore path and we'll then explore along the harbour edge.

Expect to see a historic village, old boats, a busy channel with yachts, views over the channel and harbour, the old shipyard and much more.

Meet at:

Outside the Chichester Harbour Conservancy harbour office. There is very limited parking outside the office, with the main carpark down a left turn before The Ship pub as you travel through the village to the shore. The carpark is less than 5 minutes walk away from the meeting point and is pay and display. Nearest bus stop is outside The Ship pub a minutes walk away, route 150. Chichester train station is about 20 minutes taxi drive away.

Notes:

This walk is about 80+% wheelchair accessible, with a short section of the walk on the shore, which may be wet and uneven but is fairly solid. The rest will be on shore pathways, etc.
