Fareham Marina

Exploring Fareham Marina in Fareham with The Ashcroft Arts Centre

We are excited to offer three photography walkshops in partnership with Fareham’s The Ashcroft Arts Centre and Hampshire Cultural Trust.

After an introduction to camera controls and focusing, this workshop will be dedicated to learning different photography techniques and tips including composition, creating a narrative, controlling focus & more while exploring around the marina are of Fareham. You’ll complete an inspiring walk by Fareham creek and around the old waterside buildings to practice your new photography skills looking at the shoreline, architecture, signs of the heritage of the town, local nature and what we find along the way. We will end the walk down the creek as it heads out to Portsmouth Harbour.

Young people are welcome to join, if aged up to 16 they will require a parent/guardian to accompany them who doesn’t need to book on the workshop if they aren’t participating.   

Expect to see buildings modern and old, textures, quiet urban corners, waterside views, wildlife and so much more.

This is one of three Fareham workshops, the two others include: looking at the urban environment of Fareham city centre with young people (find out more HERE) and exploring nature along Fareham Creek (find out more HERE).
