What Will Happen

Lighthouses and Long Exposure Photography. The Talacre sand dunes form the backdrop to the beach at Point of Ayr, in Flintshire, North Wales and makes for a perfect location for the photographer who loves seascapes, lighthouses and nature. The sand dunes overlook a large expanse of sand and is on the western side of the River Dee which form part of the RSPB nature reserve. Popular with bird watchers and photographers alike – the Natterjack Toad is also a habitat of the sand dunes which have been designated as a site of special scientific interest. If lighthouses are your jam, then Welshot has got you covered too – set, mid-beach, the Point of Ayr Lighthouse which was built in 1776 provides a fantastic photo opportunity, especially if we get a sunset!

As well as lighthouses and long exposure photography with seascapes and sunsets thrown in for good measure, we will, for those who would like a bit of inspiration or want to think a little differently – have a challenge for you – to create a photographic brochure of the RSPB Nature Reserve – For those who want to try their hand at macro and/or clos-up tuition, guidance and support will be given. We will also have a masterclass covering how to capture a variety of long exposures.

The Welshot Team will be at hand throughout this session to assist and help you get the best from your camera, so you can leave at the end of this session with memory cards full of beautiful photographs and great memories.

Please Note: No food or drink is included in the cost of this event and this is a fully outdoor event – please make sure you come dressed appropriately. If Welshot decides to postpone this event due to bad weather conditions you will be given a number of options regarding your booking.

Welshot will be keeping within Welsh Government regulations and recommendations regarding the Coronavirus and Covid 19 Regulations, and we expect our delegates to do the same
