  • My Welshot Experience – Off-Camera flash

    My Welshot Experience So, why am I standing outside, at night, in a cold and dark Chester?  I’m not looking for shelter though, but am in fact hoping the evening passes less quickly than it usually does as this is a Welshot Imaging Academy Evening.  Tonight’s topic is...

  • Welshot Does Iceland – March 2016 – By Helen Iles

    I’m sitting here on the plane, aisle seat, row 19 re-living the thoughts and images of the last 6 days in Iceland. I’m shattered, I’m dirty but I’m glowing with the memories and images that keep popping up into my head. I have really seriously left a bit of my...

...what we mean to our members

  • Academy Evenings for most of us are straight after a hard day in the office, one thing that Welshot do which is a nice touch is we get a full buffet supper during the evening and ALWAYS with CHIPS…

  • A tailored yet relaxed approach to teaching you how to use YOUR camera in a fun, friendly and affordable environment which instils the confidence to take the pictures you want to take.

    Yvonne Clowes
  • Welshot gets you out of your comfort zone but gives you the support, guidance and encouragement you need to make it happen. This is regardless of whether or not you are local or a remote Member, the webinars and online sessions are outstanding.

    Steven Riley
  • Customer obsession is a phrase companies like to use these days – Welshot lives this ethos, not because the words sound good but because they naturally feel this way all the time.

    Gill McGowan
  • Welshotters don’t preach, they are passionate and willing to help as much as they are able.

    Patrick Yates
  • It is about working as a group, Members, Team Leaders and Welshot itself, we all learn and help each other

… why we are different

  • If it’s not fun then we are not doing it right
  • We motivate, support, guide, help and challenge but we will never judge by camera or skill level
  • We are non – competitive. We hold challenges to get you thinking creatively but it’s not about coming 1st, 2nd or 3rd and winning trophies
  • Egos are left in the car park it is about our Members photography, not that of any one person or our Team Leaders
  • We work for our Members
    it’s about them, their needs and desires
  • Our support, guidance and tuition is continual…not just at an event but via email, phone, forum, social media – whatever way our Members need us we will be there for them
  • Our Strategic Partners are chosen very carefully – it’s about what they can do for our Members, not our bank balance and they must offer a Membership Benefit
  • We believe Everyone’s passion is the same
    regardless of type of camera or skill level
  • We bespoke the Membership packages to suit individuals … Once we get to know you we can tweak to your needs and circumstances – all it takes is a phone call
