what will happen

Welshot events give you an opportunity to create fantastic images and upload them to your computer – but what do you do with them then.  Someone once said that the digital age has created the most photographed generation who will leave the least memories for their descendants. 

This event is designed to help you understand how to turn your photographs into beautiful coffee table books that your family will treasure.

In the morning, you will join Eifion on a tour of historic Chester taking images that you will use in the afternoon to create a test book.

Post the event, there will be a thread on the forum for you to ask any questions as you create your own works of art

You will need to have some post processing software and if you do not have Lightroom you will need to download Blurb Bookwright here http://www.blurb.com/bookwright

what to expect at an full day academy workshop

Our full day events are more extensive and intensive (in detail and length) than our Academy Evenings but they are still a place where you will meet other Welshotters and designed to help you learn in a fun, creative and inspiring environment.  In most cases it does not matter what camera you use or what skill level you are, there will always be someone on hand to help you get the best from YOUR camera. However, if you are unsure please do not hesitate to contact us on lee@welshotimaging.co.uk or phone 01248719126 and we will do all we can to help you.
