Photography Walkshop - People on Hayling Island Beach
Sat 27 May 2017, 10:00 – 12:00 BST
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.
This workshop takes place on the eastern beach of Hayling Island that forms one side of the entrance of Chichester Harbour and focuses on taking photos of people. We'll have a model with us as we walk down the shoreline and shoot a series of photos using different techniques, compositions and model poses. The location will provide a backdrop of the harbour, the Solent and the passing yachts and boats.
By the RNLI station on Hayling Island. Parking is available on side roads on the approach to the beach. There is parking next to and around the RNLI station but this is for their use.
This walk sadly not wheelchair accessible, due to the loose shingle beach we will be spending the majority of the walkshop on.
