Food styling and photography, that’s what’s happening at the Welshot Photographic Academy Evening at The Bulkeley Hotel in Beaumaris, Anglesey this Month. You will learn how to use props to style with your food, composition and lighting. From Flat-lay to creative photogenic angles, from bokeh to crisp sharp images – your main aim is to leave having not only learned a thing or three about food photography but have a selection of images worthy of any food magazine.
Our first Walking with Your Camera – A Guided Photo Walk with Helen Iles for 2022 and it’s a Welshot Mini Module with Masterclass – on this photographic event which takes place in the stunning Bodnant Gardens in North Wales we are going to help you get the best from your camera. In our Welshot master-class you will learn the photographic technique of ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and learn how to compose your images. Walking with your camera is about being in the great outdoors and capturing the surroundings in your camera. From long exposures to abstract water compositions to macro and close-up photography, capturing the flora and fauna, this day has it all for the photographer.
Day Two of the Welshot Does… Adventure is about landscape photography in the Peak District. From rocky outcrops, peat covered moorland and stunning limestone dales to quaint villages, country lanes and historic millstone quarries where mill wheels remain abandoned. With woodlands and dramatic panoramas and bubbling streams, this is a day that keep any photographer and their camera busy for hours.

It is now home to a variety of wildlife, and a great place for photographers and their cameras. there is always something to see and photograph, from landscape to macro, flora and fauna and, of course, birds. Your Welshot Masterclass will be learning how to work with composition / light / shutter speeds to capture movement.
Grab your camera, we are off out for a day in Buxton – Photography in the Peak District is the name of the game this Weekend. Join Welshot for a one day adventure with your camera in the barely spoilt town of Buxton, crammed with beautiful buildings from Georgian Crescents to Opera Houses, Pavilion, quaint shops and historic arcades. Buxton is a photographers dream, architecture, beautiful gardens an stunning scenery if you’d like to walk a little. If you’d like to make a Weekend of it then day two will be about getting into the Peak District National Park and capturing the beautiful landscape and scenery near to Buxton.
Welshot Does… The Shortest Night Photographic Adventure – visiting the beautiful landscape of Anglesey and Snowdonia in North Wales, is a firm Welshot favourite and always has our delegates booking on the next years ‘Shortest Night’ adventure before the bacon butties (included) have been eaten at the end of the event. The not so short, night of photography, which is always held as close to the 21st June as possible starts the event with a gourmet picnic (included) by the side of Llyn Padarn (Llanberis Lake) deep in the heart of Snowdonia before moving on for a marathon photographic session visiting numerous locations. Seventeen hours (Yes, we can see the irony!) of photographic fun, friendship and getting creative with your camera will have you shooting everything from star trails to long exposures, from architecture to land and seascapes.

The second Welshot masterclass will help you to get prepared for an evening of Astro photography to ensure your camera is all set up to catch the night sky.

Autumn. Is there anything as nice as being in the open landscape during Autumn? We can think of only one thing better and that’s being out with your camera taking photographs during the Welshot Llangollen & Valle Crucis in Autumn – Mini Module with Masterclass photographic event. Welshot is celebrating all things Autumnal by heading for the picturesque town of Llangollen, in particular the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which is a navigable aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal across the River Dee in northeast Wales. The 18-arched stone and cast iron structure is for use by narrowboats (and walkers) and was completed in 1805 having taken ten years to design and build and will sure to delight any landscape or architectural photographer.
