About Gill Hood

Gill Hood is an amateur landscape photographer based in South Yorkshire. She has returned to photography in recent years in preparation for retirement from a full time career in the NHS and has had the good fortune to be taught by Joe Cornish, Mark Banks and Steve Gosling having attended many one to one and group workshops with them.

With strong family ties to the remote upland areas of the Dales and North York moors together with childhood holidays spent hill walking in the Scottish Highlands, Lakes and North Wales, it is not surprising that when asked what Gill would have done if she had not pursued a medical career, she answered “I would have been a shepherdess working in the Yorkshire Dales, happy in the company of my dog and the landscape"
