Strong Island has delivered photography workshops for the last 10 years to literally thousands of people of all ages and abilities, all 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.

ALL ABILITIES

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

ALL CAMERAS

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

DIFFERENT LOCATIONS

We run workshops in a variety of different locations on the south coast

LEARN TOGETHER

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

Composition

Try lots of new compositional techniques including Rule of Thirds, Leading Lines, Natural Framing, Layering, etc.

Perspectives

Discover new ways to see what is around you, finding new ways of capturing the location and the things you find on your walkshop

Take Control

Switch off automatic and take more control of your camera with aperture and shutter speed explored to creative effect with Depth of Field, Long Exposures & more

Themes & Narratives

Explore particular creative themes (such as B&W, textures, etc) and learn how to create narrative to your images with what you include, leave out and tips on building atmosphere

I owe a lot to photo walkshops, consistently improving my photography and understanding of how to get the best out of a camera. It’s led to some great experiences and opened up some exciting opportunities for me. Also getting to hang out with other photographers and meeting some new friends along the way is always a bonus.

Mike

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.

Chichester Harbour Conservancy

Thank you for hosting these regular 2 hours of getting away from the hustle and bustle of what life throws at us… what better way to get away from it all by doing a top hobby in often newly discovered environments and getting very professional photography tuition and advice mixed into the bargain?
