Our Academy Members are the single most important part of Welshot and they are what matters the most in how we work.
Therefore, it is imperative that we have the right people as part of our Team.
Team Leaders are knowledgeable, skilled and have been working professionally or as a serious photographer for many years.They are willing to pass on their skills and knowledge without a second thought to themselves, and they do so in such a way that makes you feel comfortable, which, in turn helps you to learn quickly and have that “light bulb” moment.
We love those “light bulb” moments – they happen all the time…
We also utilise the talents of our Membership by nurturing and developing 80% of our future Team Leaders – this way it ensures that we have all our Team Leaders singing from the same song sheet in regards to our ethos, how we like to work, how we want our Academy Members to be looked after and treated and how we run the Photographic Academy as a whole.
First and foremost it is about our Members’ needs and egos are left in the car park. We look for Team Leaders who are willing to share, teach, support and guide in a constructive, non-competitive and safe environment. This is of utmost importance to Welshot and they are the ones we bring in to help you get the best from your camera…

What are welshot rewards?
WelshotReward 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 (800 WelshotRewards have been given to EVERY Member to celebrate our 8th Birthday) – it is really easy to let those WelshotRewards build up.
Then all you have to do is decide how you are going to spend them – from now on specifically designed WelshotReward Days can be purchased from the website – no money changes hands (please see any special T’s & C’s specific to each event) and WelshotRewards are deducted from your account automatically.
