Fareham - Nature

Exploring Nature 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.

Join us to get outside and celebrate nature this Global Wellbeing Day! Come and explore and improve your nature photography skills.

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 out in a wild corner of Fareham. You’ll complete an inspiring walk along the creek to practice your new photography skills looking at the shoreline, woodland, nature and what we find along the way. We will end the walk out past the creek’s bend before 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 summer flowers and plants, woodland trees, the creek that leads to the harbour, birds and 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 the area around Fareham Marina (find out more HERE).
