Love Photography?  Join Us….

…And let us help you get the best from your camera and photography.

To help you get the best from your Photographic Academy Membership we have two packages.

The Enthusiast – for the beginner to the serious amateur photographer

The Advanced – for the more advanced photographer to someone who wants to go to the next level

Each package comes with its own benefits – continually added to and will help you to enjoy your passion of photography.

When you join as a Member you will receive a Welcome Letter, a Membership Manual which explains how to get the best from your membership and a Member Benefits Voucher Booklet all presented in a lovely A4 Conference Folder so you can keep track of what you are yet to use.

If you are considering working as a semi-professional or indeed moving into the professional arena full time – we can provide you with the resources, help, support and guidance on a one to one basis and bespoke to you.

New to Welshot is our very own loyalty reward system – these are called WelshotRewards and you earn them in a multitude of ways – to spend on our WelshotReward Days.

The great thing about these rewards – You don’t have to spend money to earn the rewards and money can’t buy a WelshotReward Day – only rewards can

Common Questions

  • What if my Camera is not the best?

    Who cares – we don’t. We are here to help you get the best from the camera and kit that you have – not the kit you want to have. We make sure you learn all there is to know about your camera so you can use it inside out and back to front – then when and if you want to move on, we can help you with that camera too.

    Are you a Camera Club?

    We are not a Camera Club. We don’t have competitions and all our Academy Evenings are practical and hands on where you are guaranteed to leave the evening having learned a thing or three. You get a full buffet supper (with chips) and at least 2 modules to put your camera through its paces.

    What is the best way to get the most from my Membership?

    • By using all your benefits that you are entitled to
    • By using all the features such as the Forum, Online Training (Webinars), Facebook Groups available to you.
    • By making friends with your fellow Welshotters and joining in and learning from one another
    • By attending Academy Evenings – these are “THE” single best and most affordable way for you to get the best from your membership and the best way for us to get to know you so we can help you over the coming months.
  • When does my Membership start and finish?

    Your Membership starts from the day you join and runs for 12 months from that date.

    How do I take my 1:1 tuition benefit?

    You email Eifion at eifion@welshotimaging.co.uk with a selection of dates to suit you and he will email/phone you to arrange a time. Eifion will also need to have a small consultation with you before-hand so he can arrange the tuition around you and your needs.

    I am a complete beginner – does this matter?

    We love people like you who want to learn. Everyone had to start somewhere and our more experienced Welshotters have been there, done that and are now on hand to help you get the best from your camera in a fun, friendly and affordable and non-competitive environment.
