About The Event

Portsdown Hill is located to the north of Portsmouth and is a chalk down that rises to 390 feet at its highest point. It runs from Havant in the East to Fareham in the west. The hill is jointly owned by Portsmouth City Council, Fareham Borough Council and the Ministry of Defence. Portsdown Hill has been a site of human occupation since prehistoric times. Burial sites have been found from neolithic, bronze age, iron age and saxon times.

2 Hour Photo Walk from the Mill Lane Car Park, west along the hills and chalk pit of Portsdown Hill. We will be meeting at the Mill Lane Car Park, just west of Fort Widley.

What's included;

  • Guidance provided throughout the walk, on both a one to one and group basis (depending on numbers), to maximise your potential.

Essential Gear;

  • Camera and lenses - doesn't matter what you have. I can work with most camera manufacturers (I use Canon and Sony - So I will know more about them). If you have a Long lens (Somewhere in the 70mm-200mm range), that would be beneficial for this trip.
  • Tripod - Definitely essential. most landscape images will require long exposure, You'll need something to stand it on to leave running.
  • Food or means to buy food (This is not supplied) - snacks and water.
  • Bring a torch - after the sun has gone down, it will get dark fast and the walk back may be hazardous.

Not so essential gear;

  • Off camera shutter release - this is beneficial (essential if you have to go over 30 sec exposure) as it is getting dark, you will need to up your shutter time.
  • Filters - If you have any, bring them. If it's not dark enough and you want a long exposure, Bring an ND.

Anything else is a bonus.

Parking is free in the car park.
