Hello, I am a professional photographer and welcome to gophototraining, our 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 proven professional advice and creative inspiration from.

So if like me, you are passionate about your photography, you may well find like so many before, that one of our events can really make a difference to your picture taking.

Alongside, our news section keeps you updated on the latest products and other manufacturer announcements.

Thank you for the amazing feedback we get. The countless positive comments from people who have come on a course previously, are very much appreciated. Not just the content, but about our style also.

If you don’t know me, you may like therefore to have a little read about my background on the appropriate pages.

These I hope will explain why we undertake such events. Often in conjunction with or on behalf of some of the worlds leading imaging companies.

All are based around my professional skill set and decades of professional shooting experience with film and digital capture.

We aim too demystify even the complex and make events easy to follow and enjoyable, no matter your starting point.

We have courses across the board, covering the needs of those beginning their photographic journey as a hobby, to the professional wishing to add to, or simply reaffirm their existing skill set.

My very best wishes and good photography,

John Clements.
