WelshotRewards-Day-Welshot-Photographic-Academy-Landscape-Seascape-Three-Lighthouses-Photography-Anglesey-Photography-Workshop

It is a bit of a challenge for Today’s WelshotReward Day – We are going to capture the three main lighthouses on Anglesey – Penmon, Llanddwyn Island and South Stack.  This will be a day of landscape, seascapes, macro and nature photography, make sure you bring your filters if you’d like to give long exposures a shot.  The aim is to be out all day and finish by capturing a a stunning sunset at either South Stack or Llanddwyn Island. Depending on the tides and weather conditions we will make the decision on the day in which order we shoot the last two lighthouses.  

Perfect for the complete beginner – we will guide, support and help you every step of the way and you will get plenty of tuition – group and one to one.

So, charge your battery, grab your camera and come join us for some fun, laughter and photography at the beach.

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!

Learn to capture some stunning images as you get right in close to capture the details – Learn how to use your camera and some simple tricks and techniques if you don’t have a dedicated Macro lens. Props galore, from flowers to miniature men (think railway model stuff here) from a homemade terrarium, that you can easily replicate at home to small toys with tons of detail – this evening of photography will have it all, fun, creativity and inspiration. Welshot will have a variety of lenses and adaptors for you to try. This photographic genres is very satisfying and also gives you the ability to create some great wall art too.
