Established in 2005
We've been inspiring photographers by passing on our 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 devised a wide range of workshops 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
We have a simple booking system and our website is fully secure (look for the little padlock in the address bar), so you can be assured that all your personal details will be safe with us.
How it all began
I started running photography workshops back in 2004, when digital cameras were beginning to take over from film (hence the name Going Digital). The one-day format was devised because many of my students had busy lives and didn't have time to attend regular courses or wish to gain a formal qualification.
National Trust properties were my first choice because they make ideal venues with so much to photograph 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, then 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.
