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. Pleae arrive up to 15 minutes early for a prompt start for the walkshop.


We'll be exploring Old Portsmouth, starting off at the Round Tower and then exploring the old battery stations and the top of the Round Tower before making our way down to the Camber and then on to The Point with views over Portsmouth Harbour. We'll then make our way back through Old Portsmouth and if there is time down to Sally Port and on to the Hotwalls beach.

Expect to photograph great views of The Solent and Portsmouth Harbour with lots of yachts and ships, the historic Round Tower and Hotwalls, the fishing boats and craft in The Camber, view of Spinnaker Tower, historic buildings and pathways and then the beach and pier.

Meet at:

At the entrance of the Round Tower. The nearest bus stop is only seconds away (routes 16 & 19). Portsmouth Harbour railway station is about 15-20 minutes walk away.

Notes:
This walk is about 80-90% wheelchair accessible, with good paths around locations, with just the top of the Hotwalls and the beach at the end not accessible as it is loose shingle. Happy to tweak the route.
