Commissioning photography


I am a multi-award winning freelance commercial photographer, located on the borders of Middlesex, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Hertfordshire and working principally in Greater London and the South East of England. I started working as a self employed photographer in 1997 and my work includes the following

I work both in the studio and on location with an extensive range of photographic lighting. The British Institute of Professional Photography (B.I.P.P.) is the qualifying body for professional photographers in the UK, and I qualified as a member in 1997, having previously been a student member.

The bulleted list above is also a series of links to pages about the different types of photography that I do and there are galleries of photos in various categories, showing some of the images I have made.

Image editing

 

I undertake most kinds of image editing and photographic enhancement work using Adobe Photoshop and other leading professional software. I can do RAW conversions using several RAW converters. Also image restoration of old or damaged photos.

This image (below) is a fairly straightforward composite of three images. A picture of Windsor from the Eaton bridge - in need of something extra - and two firework shots. Although the fireworks were originally on a black background they are placed in the coloured sky without the black showing. In the final image a moon was also added even though, in reality, you can't have a full moon in the same direction as a sunset or sunrise (but of course in Photoshop all things are possible). To see more please use the "Image editing" link at the top of the page.

Tuition


I offer tuition for both individuals and groups in practical photography techniques and image editing using both Adobe Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. I am a qualified teacher and have over 10 years experience teaching for several local authorities and private institutions. I am happy to provide private or corporate training for both individuals and groups. My students often remark that I have a lot of patience, but of course I wouldn't want to comment.

As well as private tuition I offer some courses through Missenden Abbey, based in Great Missenden. For more details and to book please contact the Abbey on 01296 383 582.
