We LOVE all things photography, and we love helping YOU get the best out of YOUR camera.

Here’s how we help YOU to get the best out of YOUR Camera:

Welshot Photographic Academy Membership Packages with great benefits!

Welshot Online for those who cannot attend our “In Real Life” events!

Themed photo-shoots and Events designed to keep you shooting!

Valuable Resources to help you learn your camera and make great photos!

I want to learn my camera.

Where do I start with photography?

How do I get myself off auto mode on my DSLR?

How can I learn how to use my camera intuitively without having to memorise or take notes?

How often have you asked yourself those questions?

Are you struggling with your camera? Stuck in ‘Auto’ mode or maybe a complete beginner to photography and want to learn how to use your camera properly. The Welshot Photographic Academy can solve all those problems and help you to use your camera – instead of it siting in a corner gathering dust because you just don’t know where to start.

Maybe you just want to be a part of a friendly, non-competitive community where you can experience and take part in well organised and unique themed photo-shoots while you learn how to get the best out of your camera?

That’s where Welshot comes in. We provide the fun, in the form of our Welshot photographic academy evenings, photography workshops, experience days, software courses and other events all designed to help you use your camera to its full potential.

Can’t get to a Welshot event? We’ve got you covered! Welshot Online is all you need, from our ‘How to…’ resources to our self-study courses all designed to help you from the comfort of your own home.

Kids are sorted too – check out our Welshot 4 Kids Club…

Welshot Academy Members get special stuff – from benefits to discounts – all designed to help YOU get the best out of YOUR camera.
Our Welshot events are renowned for being fun, friendly, and unique. Guaranteed to get you and your camera shooting.

A place to ‘Learn Your Camera’ at HOME but with the same Welshot support designed to get you off ‘Auto’ and using your camera properly.

This is the Welshot 4 Kids Club – from in real life events to fun, online challenges, a hobby that will keep them busy forever!


Learning About Photographic Studio Lighting

Learning About Photographic Studio Lighting

Learning about photographic studio lighting at the Welshot Creative Hub in Llandudno, North Wales is now something we are able to offer – either on a one to one basis or in small groups of two, three or four people. Have you always wanted to learn your butterfly from your Rembrandt, your split lighting from your side lighting or maybe you want to know (and learn) about the different types of modifiers on the market and what they do and how they are used to create the effects you’ve seen others do but not quite mastered yourself. These sessions are completely tailor made to YOU and YOUR needs as a photographer, so whether it’s a one to one you need or you and a group of friends fancy having a different kind of ‘Day Out’ we can help you get to grips with your photographic studio lighting techniques.

A Photographic Adventure with Welshot – Chester Walls

A Photographic Adventure, Welshot Does… Photography Workshops, Courses, Events, Themed Photo-shoots, Mini-Modules and WelshotReward Days – These all describe what the Welshot Photographic Academy is all about. Having fun with your camera, learning a thing or three about how to use your camera, taking great photos and, just generally, hanging out with like-minded people who just love photography. From Liverpool to Chester, from Anglesey to Wirral, from Snowdonia to London – We even have our very own Discover-Experience-Photograph Overseas Adventures where we’ve travelled from Hong Kong to Iceland, from Paris to Venice, from Budapest to Luxembourg and Rome to Krakow. Why not join us on an photographic adventure, grab your camera and come have some fun and get a can full of photos at the same time.

Two Minute Tuesday – P.A.S.M Camera Modes

Two Minute Tuesday - P.A.S.M Camera Modes Whether you have a compact camera, a mirrorless camera, a DSLR or even a smartphone, if it has manual controls, then you will need to understand the different modes available to you which are often referred to P.A.S.M. ...

Welshot Does… Our Next Events…

We are SO excited!

Our Welshot photographic adventures can resume. Well, at least our outdoor photography workshops and events can. The Welshot Photographic Academy is based in Llandudno, North Wales – and as such, we are bound by WELSH laws and regulations when it comes to the Coronavirus and Covid 19 restrictions.

Team Welshot has taken the decision to open up slowly, cautiously and considered and whilst we are working safely within the Welshot Creative Hub, we are yet to resume our indoor themed photo-shoots, workshops and events and concentrate on all our outdoor, on location sessions – until we know for sure it is safe to welcome you and your camera back to our Chester, Liverpool and Anglesey indoor venues for some fun, photography, and, of course, chips!

Welshot Online is a brand new addition to our extensive range of photography courses – all designed to help YOU get the best out of YOUR camera from the comfort of your own sofa. Watch out for our Welshot @ Home Zoom sessions. Members (on all Membership packages) get 20% off the listed price.
