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 20 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.


For this walkshop we'll be creating some long exposure photography at night in Old Portsmouth, including boats and views of Portsmouth Harbour and the Spinnaker Tower plus experimenting with light painting.

We'll be going out in the evening so please bring warm and dry clothing. A tripod for your camera is also required and a remote trigger would also be handy, if not then please familiarise yourself with your timer shutter release on your camera. Due to the low light this workshop is probably not so good for cameraphones.

Meet at:

At 'The Point' outside Spice Island Pub in Old Portsmouth. Parking is available on street and also at the East Street carpark. The nearest bus stop is just 5 minutes up the road (route 16). The nearest train station is Portsmouth Harbour, about 20 minutes walk away.

Notes:

About 90% of the walkshop is wheelchair friendly with paths and roads, the last part will be down by The Square Tower and Sally Port and may involve getting on to the beach.
