Welshot events give you an opportunity to create fantastic images and upload them to your computer – but what do you do with them then. Someone once said that the digital age has created the most photographed generation who will leave the least memories for their descendants.
This event is designed to help you understand how to turn your photographs into beautiful coffee table books that your family will treasure. In the morning, you will join Eifion on a tour of historic Chester taking images that you will use in the afternoon to create a test book.Find out more »
A brand new (to Welshot) photographic experience which mixes walking in the great outdoors with photography. Walking With Your Camera - guided by Helen Iles* has been specifically designed for those photographers who want to get into the beautiful Snowdonia National Park in North Wales to practice their Landscape Photography skills. From landscape to macro (close-up) to natural history photography - what could be better than a gentle stroll, along a river or a lake, and learning how to get the best from your camera. Helen will inspire, motivate and help you get the best from the day and like every Welshot there will be help, support and guidance to help you along the way.
Cwm Idwal - a 3 to 4 hour gentle hill walk taking in one of Snowdonia's hidden gems, famous for its rock formations, plant life and stunning views of the lake. The lake is surrounded by the towering peaks of Glyder Fach, Glyder Fawr, Y Garn and across the valley, Pen Yr Ole Wen.Find out more »

Welshot is TEN and we are CELEBRATING!
Ten years ago the Welshot Photographic Academy was launched in Menai Bridge, Anglesey and since then we've gone on to launch Academy Evenings and Events in Chester, Manchester, Ellesmere Port and Liverpool. We've been everywhere from Hong Kong to Halifax, from Iceland to London, from Budapest to Cambridge - we've covered every photographic genre under the sun, from Mains Studio Flash to all night shoots on Anglesey and Paris, from Macro and Close-Up to capturing water drops - not to mention Landscape, Seascape and Nightscape sessions we've had. All these events have one thing in common - fun has been had, friendships have been made, photos have been created and techniques have been learnt - and all included CHIPS too!Find out more »
Leading on from Focus on Welshot - Celebrating 10 Years - Inspiring Photographers - We continue with Day 2 of our celebrations and today we are concentrating on a variety of specific "Techniques" as well as a number of photographic modules continuing on from yesterday to help you to get the best from your camera. Once again the Welshot Team will be joined by Olympus UK, London Camera Exchange and Permajet Professional Inkjet Media. You will be able to take part in the "Treasure Hunt" (which qualifies you to be entered into a draw to win an Olympus TG Tracker) - Learn about LIVE Composite - a function specific to the Olympus camera systems (cameras will be available for you to use) and join in a Street Walk around Chester - when everything from Street to Architecture to Creative Photography will be covered. If that little lot isn't enough for you there will be various photographic modules from the day before still set up that you will let you get hands-on and create an image or three.Find out more »

Circumnavigating Anglesey and Snowdonia” - starting in Llanberis with a picnic supper in the Evening and finishing at breakfast, both of which are included in the cost of this event. Shooting for nearly 15 hours solid. Most of the 2018 delegates are already pre-booked onto this event so spaces are already limited.Find out more »
Leading on from our previous Post Processing events - these sessions are designed to act as both a "Stand Alone" or "Continued Learning"building on what you have already learnt previously. Welshot events are great for getting those fantastic images – but what do you do with them once you get them off your camera. To help answer that question we are running a post processing day introducing you to the basics of processing and explaining the options you have which will enhance your images.Find out more »
At this Welshot Photographic Academy full day, on location, photo-shoot event the “Editorial Edge” styling (clothing and techniques) will team with the backdrop of the cosmopolitan Georgian Quarter in Liverpool. Think clean tailored lines, beautiful models, in a vibrant urban and sometimes derelict landscape – this is a catwalk stopping combo! Think Peter Lindbergh when he photographed the great models in the Meat Packing Districts of New York in a documentary fashion style.
Come and join us and the Welshot Team in Liverpool and be prepared to make and create some stunning images. learn a thing or three, have some fun and make some new friends.Find out more »
