Event Details

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. 

 

Staunton Country Park is the free entry parkland to the north of the well known ornamental farm, petting zoo and glasshouses. We will be starting at the main gate and exploring the parkland down to the remains of the old mansion house. These remains include old archways and stairs and views out to the lake further down the valley. We'll discover the old shellhouse before making our way down to the water and forest before using the arched bridge out on to the island. 

Expect to summer flowers and plants, woodland, old ruins, a wide open lake, wildlife and much more.

Meet at:

At the entrance to country park of Staunton, on the north side of Middle Park Way. The Staunton Country Park carpark is on the other side of the road and is pay and display. Buses 21 and 27 stop near the entrance. Havant train station is about 20-30 minutes walk away.

Notes:

This walk is about 70% wheelchair accessible, with good paths around the park but we will be going off the path for some of the walk.

Strong Island Co

Strong Island began in 2008 as a collective of friends with the aim to actively promote the many great things that were happening in arts and culture in Southsea and Portsmouth. In the following years we've created a number of innovative and engaging community arts projects with the aim to share the passion for our city. At the start of 2012 we launched Strong Island Media, a multi discipline creative company that offers a wide variety of education and training in film & photography across the south coast.
