« I became one of Gillian's students when she was teaching at a local college here in the UK. She was so very supportive and has such skill and knowledge within the artistic field. Gillian is very approachable and no question was ever too trivial! As a more 'mature' student, I had never worked at degree-level before but, under Gillian's tuition, I was encouraged to go on to complete my BA Photography and gained a 1st Class degree! I would highly recommend Gillian as a tutor - she has a passion to see her students thrive and succeed and, for me personally, she helped me gain such knowledge and confidence in my work. Fantastic tutor - highly recommended! »

Methodology

I encourage a student to find their own creative voice through experimentation, problem solving, observational drawing/photographic exercises and project development. I put an emphasis upon developing a students strengths, both practical and theoretical. I find that critiques and analysis of others art are also important learning tools.

Experience

I have over ten years experience of high school art and photography teaching,
and am just completing a Master's degree in Illustration (2020) I have taught both AP Studio Art and AP Art History and A level Art and Design. I have been teaching online for the past year.

Gillian started me on my journey as my tutor at a local college teaching me photography. she has a very calm manner and is exceptionally knowledgeable. in fact my early beginnings with Gilligan's teaching has culminated into my having a multi award winning photography buisness. I can highly recommend her

For the past nine years or so I’ve been on an amazing photography journey including my passion for wedding photography and meeting and learning from some of the finest international wedding photographers and I’m so pleased to say that my journey began with Gillian.

Gillian is the most wonderful of tutors who always makes learning interesting and fun. Gillian has great patience and is able to explain both the fundamentals and more complex issues with ease whilst ensuring that the student fully grasps the concepts. I know from personal experience that Gillian encourages students to learn through expanding their own ideas which she supports with meaningful and supportive critique.

I will be forever grateful to Gillian for her encouragement in the early part of my photography journey and it’s so pleasing that to this day she remains supportive and is a follower of my work.

I have no hesitation in recommending Gillian as a trustworthy and highly skilled educator.

Brilliant tutor, patient and encouraging. I suffer with mental health problems but Gillian made me feel at ease and welcome, without her encouragement and support I would not have gone on to do A level photography and pass it. Gillan gave me the confidence and faith in myself that I needed I now submit work to be used on books and have 10 covers.

I met Gillian about 7 or 8 years ago when she was my photography tutor at College. I enrolled in her classes knowing nothing about my camera or how to take photos and she taught me so much, she was very patient and honest in her constructive criticisms – and I still do photography! We have remained friends (from a distance these days) and I wish her all the best of luck in her online tutoring.

Gillian was a tutor of mine during my photography degree at university. She was a great tutor with her knowledge and love for the subject which she passed onto us all. With Gillian having knowledge in many fields within the arts her support, ideas and knowledge helped a great deal!! Thank you so much
