Famed for its Iron Age fort and Bronze Age barrows, Old Winchester Hill provides a fabulous vantage point to watch the sun go down on a summer’s evening. Richard Welch of JustGreatShots Photography will be accompanying us. He will be offering photographic advice to help you capture some memorable pictures. All kinds of camera and levels of experience welcome. Walk suitable for older children. Bring a snack to eat while you snap!

Just Great Shots Photography have been hosting various photography workshops and walkabouts since 2017. Their walkabouts are normally free as only hints and tips are provided along with an enjoyable day out with a camera. Workshops are hosted in small groups or on a true 1-2-1 basis. Workshops cover from beginners to advanced. Most events are at the weekend but during the summer further mid-week events are put on. In 2019 they hosted over 100 events covering Seaford to Portland along the south coast. Themes included wildlife, seascapes, nightscapes, low light, long exposure and much more.
