Welshot Does… Frocks on Rocks.

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.
