About The Event

Join acclaimed photographer Andy Hornby on an enchanting photography walk through the heart of Portsmouth town centre, as the sun sets and the cityscape transforms into a captivating tapestry of lights and shadows. Immerse yourself in the pulsating energy of the urban landscape and capture the allure of nighttime cityscapes like never before.

This photography walk is designed for both beginners and experienced photographers alike, providing a unique opportunity to explore the art of night photography under the guidance of a true master of the craft. While not a formal workshop, Andy Hornby will be on hand throughout the walk, offering assistance, sharing insights, and providing valuable tips to help you elevate your night photography skills.

As dusk descends, Portsmouth town centre becomes a playground of visual delights. The juxtaposition of architectural marvels, bustling streets, and the interplay of artificial lighting creates a rich canvas for capturing captivating cityscapes. From the iconic landmarks to the hidden gems, you'll have the chance to explore and photograph the unique character of Portsmouth after dark.

Andy Hornby's vast expertise and artistic vision will inspire you to experiment with composition, exposure, and the interplay of light and shadow. As you navigate the streets, he'll be there to answer your questions, offer guidance, and share his techniques for capturing the essence and mood of the cityscape at night.

Capture the vibrant reflections in the glass facades, the streaks of car lights as they zip through the streets, and the warm glow emanating from cafes and shops. Andy's insights will empower you to experiment with different shutter speeds, aperture settings, and white balance adjustments, enabling you to master the technical aspects and unleash your creativity.

This photography walk is more than just a chance to capture stunning images; it's an opportunity to immerse yourself in the dynamic atmosphere of Portsmouth at night and connect with fellow photography enthusiasts. Engage in meaningful discussions, share tips and tricks, and create lasting memories with like-minded individuals who share your passion for capturing the world through a lens.

By the end of this photography walk, you'll have not only a collection of captivating night cityscapes but also a deeper appreciation for the art of nocturnal photography.

Don't miss this chance to wander through Portsmouth town centre, guided by the expertise of Andy Hornby, as you capture the urban magic that comes alive after dark. Join us for an unforgettable photography walk and embark on a visual journey that will forever transform your perception of nighttime cityscapes.

Open to all - Sign up for a FREE ticket, through the link  - This is not a workshop (See other Events for Paid Workshops), so no direct tuition will be given on the photo walk. However, Andy will be on hand to guide you towards great compositions and settings required to get that perfect shot.

What's included;

  • A short trek around the area.
  • 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 wide angle lens, that would be beneficial.
  • Tripod - Definitely essential. Most landscape images will require long exposure, and you'll need something to stand your camera on, to leave running.
  • Food or means to buy food (This is not supplied) - snacks and water.

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 NOT free. There are plenty of car parks and road parking close to the event. 

We will be walking some distance. Please make sure you have good walking shoes and wrap up in case the weather is bad.
