I am a professional photographer and welcome to gophototraining, a site designed to support my photography workshop and seminar activities in and around the UK. In short, it is a one stop shop to see where there are courses to go and obtain some professional advice and creative inspiration. So if like me, you are passionate about your photography, please enjoy the content that will grow as time passes.

Thank you for the amazing feedback we get, it has prompted the idea for this site. The countless positive comments from people who come on a course are very much appreciated. If you don’t know me you may like to have a little read about my background on the appropriate pages. These I hope will explain why I undertake such events, often in conjunction with or on behalf of some of the worlds leading imaging companies.

Using all my experiences, we aim too demystify and make events easy to follow and enjoyable, no matter your starting point. We have courses across the board, covering the needs of those starting their photographic journey, to the professional wishing to add to their existing skill set.

My very best wishes and good photography,

John Clements.
