I’m delighted to announce that my book is now back in stock since Grumpton saw the error of his ways and returned the books he ‘borrowed’. Learn more.


I was inspired to create this online photography course after one of my students emailed me and asked “Gavin, can you just teach me Photoshop as if I was a complete moron?”. I knew immediately I had a great concept for a series of Photoshop tutorials that would help people overcome the many quirks and annoyances of Photoshop and get them beyond the usual roadblocks to understanding how it all works.

Read What People Say About Fototripper

This course was excellent. Gavin provided detailed information on the technical aspects of beginning landscape photography, covering exposure, focus and other details. Gavin was adept at explaining the basics and provided excellent individual attention. His discussion of composition and photographic expression was also excellent, especially for a beginning course. I would very highly recommend this or similar course. It was illuminating even in the rain.

I came into the course with limited knowledge and a new camera expecting to be overwhelmed by the photography jargon. I was pleasantly surprised with photographers of all levels and great tuition from Gavin. I took my skills from the basic composition of a picture to full advanced camera settings and digital post-processing in the space of 4 days! I would never have been able to do this without the workshop. As an added bonus you are in one of the most beautiful places in the world! I certainly now have the photography bug.

Would recommend Gavin’s workshops to photographers of all levels. Cheers
