Roving Academy Evenings are PERFECT for the beginner just starting out on their photographic journey.

Welshot is coming to Conwy…  And to Llandudno, Rhos on Sea, St Asaph, Colwyn Bay, Abergele, Liverpool, Manchester and other surrounding areas…

The Welshot Photographic Academy, “Roving” Academy Evenings will be in a different North Wales (and across the Border) location every Month covering a number of Photographic genres – mainly outside but always with a bit of a challenge for you and your camera.

These Evenings are perfect for the beginner, the photographer who has just picked up a camera and want to learn how to get the best from it in a fun, friendly, non-competitive and fun environment.

Not a beginner?  That’s fine too, each month is designed to help you to think a little differently – help you get out of your photography rut – help you get out of your comfort zone – push you a little to achieve a photographic goal or ambition that you may have.

Basing ourselves at a different location EVERY fourth Tuesday of the Month this is the ideal Academy Evening for those who want to go out and about with a group of like-minded people and all with the guidance, support and tuition from Team Leaders that Welshot has become well-known for.

Depending on the location & venue of the evening will determine where we will eat…  But, never fear there will always be Welshot Chips.

All you need is a willingness to:

  • Have some fun
  • Learn your camera
  • Think outside the box when it comes to taking pictures
  • Eat Chips…We would love to see you at our “Roving” Academy Evening
£35.00 This event is discounted to £28.00 at checkout if you are a Welshot Academy Member
