Strong Island has delivered photography workshops for the last 8 years to well 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.
Everyone is welcome to come along, it doesn’t matter how confident you are with your camera, from total beginner to expert there is lots to discover
Bring your digital or film camera: anything from a digital compact through to an SLR and if you want to shoot 35mm film, cool! Cameraphones are welcome too
We run workshops in a variety of different locations on the south coast
Learn in a group with people of all abilities
Learn lots of new techniques, skills and tips with a professional photographer/
On the walkshops you’ll have the opportunity to discover lots of new camera techniques and skills in fun and interesting ways, these new skills and techniques you can use time and again in the future

Paul has a calm, friendly and approachable manner. He is a natural communicator who is able to share his enthusiasm for, and expertise and knowledge of his craft. These qualities mean he is able to engage with all ages and abilities.
