Bring your camera if you like and be ready to take a few photos and have some fun!

Please Note:  This event was previously advertised for 3rd October 2019 – It has now been changed to Thursday 6th February 2020. 

You can come and go as you please, there will be no restrictions and there will be a variety of photographic sessions for you to get involved with or just look and watch.  Our whole team will be there and on hand to help you with any questions – from helping you to decide what camera is right for you to capturing an image or two.


Is this event for Me?  If you love photography and would love to get more from your camera, and you’ve never been a Welshot Member or been to a Welshot event before you are very welcome to come to this event and learn what Welshot is all about.

I am a beginner to photography, can I still come?  We’ve designed Welshot just for people like you – it doesn’t matter if you’ve never picked up a camera before – the way we run our sessions with help, guidance and support always on hand will ensure you go home knowing your camera just a little bit better than when you arrived.

I am already a Welshot Member, can I still come?  Hey Welshotters – We’d like to keep this event just to people who have never met us before but would like to see how we can help them – I’m betting there is another Academy Evening or event that would be better for you this month and we’d love to see you there.

We do hope that you will be able to make it, we’d love to meet you.
