The Guild has some exceptional trainers and puts on great value workshops as well as offering bespoke on-line critiques and mentoring sessions relating to both the craft of photography and the business related side! We also encourage self-development and mutual support in our private groups to create a community approach to helping each other which proves very effective.
Image Critiques are undertaken on the images of your choice with one of our experienced national judges on a 121 basis either online, via Skype, phone or in person. This can be of great value to understand what is required when entering national competitions, submitting for assessment processes or simply for personal development.
Personal Mentoring goes further than the critique process. It does not focus on a particular skill, task or goal. Rather, it is an ongoing process to support and encourage you to manage your own learning in order to maximise your potential, develop your skills and become the photographer or photographic business you aspire to be! If you commit to this you will linked to an experienced Guild Panel member and will work with them over time on a 121 basis either online, via Skype, phone or in person.
Workshops and Special Events are undertaken around the country, ranging from FREE Photowalks through to Mock Weddings, workshops and seminars by some of the best known names in the industry. We also run some workshops in Europe for those who want to travel, and we can also arrange 'bespoke' workshops wherever you wish. Members can choose a subject and location and pull together a few interested attendees we will provide the trainer.
Discounted Private Training is also available. Several of our Panel run private training and offer preferential rates to Guild members.
As you would imagine, in some instances there is a cost for the above. Where they do apply they are kept as low as possible.
