what will happen

Street Photography – One of those photographic genres that scares most people to death but one of the most rewarding once you have learned how to use your camera and conquered your fear of photographing people – either in a candid way or otherwise. At this Welshot Photographic Academy workshop led by Derek Buick the day will begin by having the “Theory” explained to you with from help setting your camera up to any questions you may have. This Street Photography event will take place in Chester – an ideal and compact location for you to be able to capture a wide range of images.

Leaving the training room, you will be sent out in small groups along with the help, guidance and support of a Welshot team leader to capture your photographs – we may even set a challenge or two to get you thinking creatively, to help you leave your comfort zone and to build your confidence with the genre of street photography

After your first session of photography lunch, which is included, will be served at the Chester Crowne Plaza and there will be time to review images, help with any questions that you need help with and go over any other techniques you would like explained.

Then it is back out for your second and final photographic session before coming back to the hotel for Q&A and a review of images (if you want)

With the help of the Welshot team you will be given all the support, guidance and tuition that you need to help you get the best from your camera – regardless of your skill level so please join us on what promises to be a fun and creative Welshot Academy Event.
