Established in 2005
We've been passing on our photography knowledge and skills since 2005 and we've earned a reputation for enjoyable, high quality, affordable workshops.
We want you to be able to capture the images that are important to you, in photographs you can be proud of. To help you to achieve this, we have a high-quality range of workshops (not a walkabout with a camera) that offer great value for money with:
- a maximum 10 students per tutor (and smaller groups on many of our specialist workshops)
- enthusiastic, professional, experienced tutors, approved to our high standard
- a mixture of classroom and hands-on photography with detailed handouts and assignments to take home
- beautiful venues for the maximum photographic opportunities
How it all began
I started running one-day photography workshops back in 2004, when digital cameras were beginning to take over from film (hence the name Going Digital), following a couple of years teaching digital photography at local colleges, because many of my students had busy lives and didn't have time to attend regular courses or wish to gain a qualification.
National Trust properties were my first choice because they make ideal venues and the Trust's local learning officers were kind enough to sit in and approve the standard of tuition of our early workshops, not to mention giving us lots of good advice on the best things to photograph at their venues.
Since then the business has grown apace and I have been joined by other enthusiastic photographers and skilled trainers to form the GD team and we have shown tens of thousands of students how to take better photographs. I'm especially proud that a number of our team began their photographic journey on GD workshops and have gone on first to assist on our workshops, the take on the role of tutor, alongside successful careers as professional photographers.
Enjoy your photography!
Group photography courses aren't for everyone and many people value the opportunity to receive individually tailored tuition to help them achieve their objectives. We're pleased to offer private one-to-one days so that you can learn good photography techniques at your own pace and for more experienced photographers we have a range of experience days where you can fine-tune your skills with a day's hands-on photography with one of our talented tutors.
