what will happen

Conceptual Photography Themed Photo-Shoot –  at what is now an annual Welshot event you can expect to think outside of the box and have your creative juices tested to the limit to create some very different images while creating some dark magic.  At the very first themed photo-shoot for 2019 we have an amazing theme planned for you.  

“til death do we part…

and in the light our demons will fight…

until we accept the darkness of night…

where in peace, we will find beauty within the beast”

This day of conceptual photography will have two main set ups, one before and one after lunch.  

Set ups will feature one main model with additional models within the set-up. Costumes include a wedding dress and a black body suit…

At this Welshot Photographic Academy full day event, your perception of the normal will be distorted, and you will see that even in darkness there is beauty.

Provided with models in studio set ups you will have the opportunity to add unique images to your portfolio, something a little ‘odd’ but beautiful at the same time.  And certainly, thought provoking.

Props, ideas, inspiration and a basic “Storyline” will be provided, before the start of the event to help you get the most from the day.  You will also be encouraged, once you have shot the specially set-up scene to mix it up a little with your own thoughts and ideas.

Come and join us and the Welshot Team at the Chester Crowne Plaza and be prepared to make and create some stunning images, learn a thing or three, have some fun and make some new friends.

Beginners are welcome and actively encouraged at Welshot with all help, guidance and support given.

Lunch and refreshments are included.

Numbers are limited to TEN Delegates only.
