what will happen

Frocks on Rocks is back AGAIN!!…  And this time our Annual Photographic Extravaganza for 2017 is in TWO locations.  The Ellesmere Holiday Inn, next to the Manchester Ship Canal and the Ellesmere Port Boat Canal Museum – where the theme for the first on location will be “STEAMPUNK”

After a buffet lunch (included) at the Holiday Inn, Ellesmere Port you will make your way to our second location – The New Brighton Waterfront (Perch Rock Fort car park) – where we will resume our second on location themed models shoot – this time, Mods and Dolls…    

From stunning and handsome models being captured in your camera using off camera flash and natural light – complete with costumes and props this will be an event guaranteed to not only help you learn a new technique of three but will also get you some fantastic images for your photographic portfolio.  

So, grab your camera, charge your batteries, bring extra memory cards because this date is going to be jam packed full of photographic fun for the photographer. 

From a variety of locations, outside and under-cover – not to mention the actual “Rocks” this day will give you, your camera and your portfolio a mixture of styles and opportunities.  You will have all the help, guidance and support you need and want as well as time to yourself to be as creative with your only limitation being your imagination.

Numbers are restricted and are proportionate to Team Leaders and Model(s) – Groups are kept small and there is always a chance for 1:1 shooting time and time with Team Leaders.  All Off Camera Flash (OCF) – lighting equipment and modifiers will be supplied by Welshot

Delegates will be responsible for their own transportation to and from each location but we are sure car sharing will be available.

A detailed schedule along with information will be sent to you on or before 26thJune

PLEASE NOTE:  This is an OUTSIDE Event and we will be shooting outside – while every possible attempt will be to provide undercover protection if needed due to adverse weather conditions we cannot guarantee this.  We may need to change, modify or alter the running order and of the day’s events due to weather conditions.

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.
