WalkingPix was founded by Gill Golding
Gill is an urban photographer who completed an MA in Photography and Urban Cultures with distinction at Goldsmiths, University of London. Her visual research interests lie in the field of post-industrial cities, particularly with an emphasis on regeneration, gentrification, sustainability and more recently, the hyperreal. Her choice of walking as a research methodology allows her to encounter landscapes through an embodied practice that encourages a critical approach to her work.
Gill is a Visiting Research Fellow at Goldsmiths, is Education Director of the Urban Photographers Association, Organiser of the International Urban Photography Summer School and is a member of the Executive Board of the International Visual Sociology Association. Gill is a former headteacher who has worked in all sectors of education and remains committed to creating education and learning opportunities.

Over the coming months Gill will be organising urban photography workshops that will include using the smartphone, some dslr skills, improving composition and approaching the urban landscape.
All workshops will involve walking because of Gill’s belief that through walking, participants will gain a deeper understanding of urban spaces.
Periodically Gill will also be organising events such as symposia and talks. She will also sometimes invite colleagues to lead workshops.
