If there is something Welshot does well it is variety, and the two days just spent in aforementioned dark room couldn’t have been more different. I am an amateur with no impetus to go professional but if the opportunity arose to make a few coins to cover my GAS (gear acquisition syndrome) then I wouldn’t say no. So the chance to spend a day with one of the few names I know in the photography world was too good to miss.

The Welshot Photographic Academy event on ‘How to Get Published’ left me excited and inspired to consider how I might use the growing catalogue of photographs filling my computer’s hard drive.

At the start of this Welshot event, we were asked what we wanted to get out of it. This started the cogs in my brain whirring as I thought about where I’d like to take my photography, and how I might make some money out of my images. I told the group how I’ve considered making cards and calendars of the local area to sell in my local shops, and that I’d like to improve my travel blog and make some money out of that.
