what will happen

At this Welshot Photographic Academy Evening, you will be recreating some of the world’s most iconic album covers.  From Bruce Springsteen (The Boss) to Ziggy Stardust (Bowie), join us for an Evening of enjoyment and learning – helping you to gain new techniques and skills with your camera and photography in a fun and interactive format.  

Our models will be Male, and Female and we will be using Mains Studio Flash for this event.  The shoot will be an inside outside event and will be sure to provide you with many photographs to enhance your portfolio. All photographic lighting equipment will be supplied by Welshot as well as props.         

Ideas, inspiration and a basic “Storyline” will be provided, in the Welshot Forum, before the event to help you get the most from the day.  This will be an online version of a mood/vision board.  You will be encouraged, once you have shot the specially set-up scene to mix it up a little with your own thoughts and ideas.

Come and join us and the Welshot Team at the Crowne Plaza in Chester and be prepared to make and create some stunning images, learn a thing or three, have some fun and make some new friends.

Beginners are welcome and actively encouraged at Welshot with all help, guidance and support given.

Supper is included.
