Strong Island has delivered photography workshops for 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.

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

Thank you so much for the walkshop on Saturday.  I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to hopefully doing another one soon.

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and picked up some really useful tips. The morning was really relaxing and I’ve consequently been bitten by the bug! I will be booking another walkshop ASAP.
