I love the support I get from The Guild in all areas of my photography business from training to just chatting with others.

A very friendly and helpful group. Lots of online training and guidance for members and a monthly online competition.

As an amateur/hobbyist, I was worried that I’d be out of my depth, but I needn’t have worried; it’s a very welcoming and supportive community.
