What Will Happen

Would you like to get more from your camera?  Would you like to know what all those buttons, settings, dials and knobs do?  Lost your mojo when it comes to your photography?  In a bit of a creative funk and want to be inspired and motivated – then this Welshot Photographic Mini-Module with a Masterclass is the right event for you.

This event is ideal for the complete beginner or the more experienced photographer.

At the Museum are a variety of subjects for you to photograph from Canal boats, Porters row cottages, Blacksmiths forge, Locks and Historic boats.

There are plenty of exhibits to challenge both yourself and your camera, both undercover and outdoors. The challenge for today is for you to use your camera off the auto settings.

Please Note:  Mini Modules do not include food or refreshments and if applicable they are delegates own responsibility. 


The Welshot Mini-Module (with Masterclasses) events are a mixture of Academy Evenings and Full Day Events – Four to five hours in length and usually outside. 

They are designed so delegates can meet-up with other photographers in a safe environment in many different locations to learn how to get the best from their camera but also have the flexibility to be creative.

A variety of photographic genres will be covered, and each event will have a photo-walkabout, were you are free to roam but still feel the benefit of the Welshot guidance, support and tuition if needed as well as being in an inspiring, fun, creative, safe and secure group environment.

Each event will have a dedicated Mini-Masterclass which covers a genre usually lasting about one to two hours. 

These events will range in price – from £28.00 to £50.00 for Welshot Members and some you will even be able to use your Academy Evening vouchers to book your place.

Non-Members are also welcome to attend, you just pay a little more.
