Welshot Rewards

Welshot Reward Days are something a little bit different – not like your normal “Rewards Scheme” Welshot rewards Academy Members for “Doing Stuff” rather than spending money.  This we believe makes it fair for Everyone – all Members have the same opportunity and are on a level playing field and earning points does not come down to how much money you spend. From writing a blog, entering a forum challenge, supplying us with an image from a Welshot event or just even because we feel like rewarding our Members – it really is as easy as that to let those Welshot Rewards build up.

Member Testimonials

Name: Sarah Horrocks

Location: Llandudno

Camera system: Sony Mirrorless

At the beginning of lockdown, I truly lost interest in my camera and photography in general. With gentle encouragement from Lee and Eifion and viewing lovely images on the Welshot website I learnt how to post on Facebook and started entering the Tuesday night 1 hour challenge graduating from using my phone camera to getting my ’proper’ camera out!  Inspired by what was being posted in the daily challenges I started trying them out. With a different subject each day I felt encouraged to try out new ideas as all were possible to do from the home which was so important in the early days of the pandemic. Lee & Eifion have been on hand throughout to answer any questions and I have had a brilliant 1:1’s with Eifion by Zoom which helped me enormously- no question is ever judged to be stupid!  Since then my macro lens has rarely been off my camera! I know with their encouragement and enthusiasm I have become a better photographer and put the enforced social isolation time to good use. Without rediscovering my mojo for photography in the early weeks of lockdown with the support of Welshot I do not think I would have survived the past months still being relatively sane!

I love the Sunday night Pub Quizzes – with Lee and Eifion chatting with a guest quizmaster it really does feel as though we are all together.  As I am retired, the daily challenges, the Sunday quiz and Tuesday one-hour challenge have all helped me keep track of the days and provide a focus for the days and weeks. 

Welshot is a tremendous photographic community and I have made some wonderful friends – so very glad I joined. I cannot thank Lee and Eifion enough for their continued support, versatility, good humour and resourcefulness during the past months. I look forward to the time I can be back together with all my friends at Welshot events and holidays but applaud Lee & Eifion for their care in planning how we can meet safely again.
