December 2013 update: I'm no longer working as a photographer

In 2009, I launched a company that makes business software for photographers, and now that company is so successful that I've regretfully had to put my photography business on hold indefinitely. You can find out more about this change on my blog.

If you're looking for a photographer, I'm still in touch with many amazing photographers and would be delighted to recommend them to you if you contact me.


New workshop from Tom Catchesides & Helen Bartlett

Posted in Seminars at 13:12 on 03/01/2011

We hope you've had a great Christmas and have had a good start to 2011. Before your diaries get too booked up, Helen and I have just announced that we're putting on our first workshop together in March.

Post-production for portrait & wedding photographers - by Tom Catchesides & Helen Bartlett

Calumet Drummond St, London, Monday 14 March 2011

I'll be teaming up with outstanding children's portrait photographer Helen Bartlett to present an intensive one-day course covering everything you need to polish your portrait & wedding images to a standard that will delight your clients. We'll be teaching you the techniques that we use every day in our own photography businesses. The course will explore:

Setting and exceeding client expectations.

Taking control of your workflow.

Post-production with Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

Practical portrait retouching.

Producing great black & white images from digital.

Presenting finished images to your clients.

The course is suitable for both established pros and those in the process of building a photography business. Some Photoshop experience is necessary, but a catch-up session will make sure that everyone attending the course is familiar with the tools used throughout.

Everyone attending the seminar will receive a disc containing details of the techniques demonstrated, sample files and the Photoshop Actions used during the course.

The workshop is taking place at Calumet's store on Drummond St in London. Lunch and refreshments are provided.

"I really enjoyed your seminar and came away with lots of ideas. I was really impressed with your knowledge and skill and the amount of content you managed to get through in a day was fantastic."

"There was so much to learn and I'm dying to spend time going through it all again!"

"I had a great time yesterday and felt really motivated - thanks again for your enthusiasm and content of the course, I thought it was great."
