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.


We will be exploring the open access areas of Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, looking at the recently restored and upgraded Boathouse 4, the old, historic buildings, the views of HMS Warrior, HMS Victory, HMS M.33 and more. Expect to see capture lots of Portsmouth’s naval history, hidden reminders of the dockyard’s working history and views of the basin and harbour.

Meet at:

Outside Victory Gate, entrance to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard on The Hard. There is parking (paid) around the Dockyard in different carparks such as Admiralty Road and The Harbour Carpark on Havant Street. For buses the new Hard Interchange bus station is only 2 minutes away. The nearest train station is Portsmouth Harbour, only 5 minutes away. The Gosport Ferry is also only 5 minutes away too.
