Event description

Description

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 special walkshop is in partnership with Pompey in the Community and will give us the opportunity to explore Portsmouth FC's Fratton Park ground. The walkshop will include around the pitch, up in the stands and possibly some not often seen locations. The team will be playing away on this Saturday.

Expect some views of this iconic ground and pitch as well as images of the empty stands, unseen corners and views and much more.

Meet at:

At the Frogmore Road entrance to the ground (by the ticket office). Parking is available on the road. There is a bus stop 2 minutes from the ground on the main road for routes 1, 13 & 19 & 19A. The ground is 10 or so minutes walk from both Fratton train stations.

Notes:

This walk is about 30% wheelchair accessible but access to the stand is quite limited.
