1960’s Fashion – is there anything more iconic? At this fashion (1960’s) photography event based at the Chester Crowne Plaza we will be using mains studio flash as well as off camera flash lighting to help you make images that you can be proud of.  Your models will be wearing the flamboyant clothing that this era was known for – from bright, bold prints and make-up to high heeled boots and beehive hairstyles! Shooting in a studio environment as well as using the hotel as your backdrop you will be working in small groups with one to one shooting time with your models.  Backdrops, props and a wide range of clothing will all be supplied by Welshot.  All you have to do is charge your batteries, grab your camera and come make some great photos.


Dresses, Docs & Portrait Photography – Llandudno Photographic Academy Evening

Perfect your portrait photography at this on location shoot at the Welshot Photographic Academy Evening.  Our Models, wearing Dresses and Docs, and using the beautiful Llandudno Bay in North Wales as their backdrop, will be working hard to help you capture some stunning portraiture, using both off camera flash and natural, ambient lighting. We guarantee fun, frolics and frivolity as they pose for the camera, before and after the sun sets on the horizon, then, we’ve got a chance to do some low-light portraiture too!  Think portraits and piers, swishy dresses, stomping boots and biker jackets.  From posed portraits to those candid shots – this portrait photography session will help you learn a thing or three about lighting, hone your already gained skills or just help you to enhance your photographic portfolio. Whatever your reason for attending, we know you will have a lot of fun with like-minded photographers in a safe, non-competitive and fun environment.  We even provide you with a light buffet supper.

Welshot Does… Frocks on Rocks.  This high-fashion photo-shoot has been a long standing annual event at Welshot, and each year, while we may have had a different theme, one thing has always remained the same – The seaside is ALWAYS our location and the 2023 event is no exception. Our theme for 2023 is… Vogue – 1940’s & 1950’s Fashion and our models will be dressed to the nines.   The end of the war saw the return of couture fashion designers like Christian Dior, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Coco Chanel, and Hubert de Givenchy, all of whom had a major impact in the style of the decade and at this Welshot Photo-Shoot our Models will be wearing all manner of clothing from full skirts, cinched waists, sloping shoulders, and high waisted pants, which will create hourglass silhouettes with masculine details – perfect to capture in your camera and a stunning image for your portfolio.  We are however, making one major change – we will be starting the days shooting after lunch and will continue until after the sun has gone down.  By making use of of the afternoon and evening light that Llandudno is famous for, you are going to be capturing our models using that natural glow as well as using off camera flash.

With a nod to the great fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, this Welshot fashion photography workshop in the historic Georgian Quarter of Liverpool will have you shooting cinematic and naturalistic portraits of our Model(s).  If you want to be really authentic, we will help you to look, see and shoot in black and white!  This photographic workshop will help you to develop, build on and hone your own original style of photography, something every photographer strives for.  We will be using natural and ambient lighting as well as off camera flash and you will learn how to balance the light, the models and your surroundings to tell a story.  Your models will be wearing a wide variety of fashion outfits, from power suits to flowing summer dresses with props and accessories to match.
