While I haven't used them, you can find a few free apps like WiFi Photo
Transfer which starts a http server on the ipad that you then connect to
and download the photos.

Have you looked at starting your own cloud? While you will have to
install the client app from the apple store, (surely they have an apple
store account), you then connect to your machine - so no third party
"cloud" sign up.

While OwnCloud charges $1 for their app, NextCloud is a free app.
Both server sides are available in ports, so you just have to install
www/nextcloud, install the ios client and sync your files to your machine.
