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.

Look, Mum, I'm on the Apple website!

Posted in Seminars at 12:09 on 06/09/2010

Not that I'm excited about it or anything, but this is a quick reminder that I'm giving a talk at Apple's Regent St store in London next week.

Running a photography business on a Mac

Apple's Regent St Store, London, Monday 13 September, 19:00-21:00

Apple have invited me to speak at their flagship store on Regent St which, considering that I've been a Mac user since I was 12, is very exciting. I'll be talking about the fundamentals of setting up a wedding photography business and running it from your Mac, and there'll be plenty of time for questions if there's anything else you want to ask me about.

The seminar is free and there's no need to pre-register, but space is limited so please turn up early if you want to make sure you get a seat.

I'm also doing a full day post-production course here in Cambridge in November, which you can find out more about here.

New professional photography seminars at the Apple Store, Regent St, and Cambridge

Posted in Seminars at 13:40 on 20/08/2010

This year has been fantastically busy so far, both for my wedding photography business and Light Blue Software, but I'm finding some time to do some more teaching in the Autumn. I'm very excited to announce two new seminars.

Delivering the goods: post-production for wedding & portrait photographers

Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, Monday 8 November

Digital capture has given photographers an enormous amount of creative control over their work, but this means that taking great pictures is only the first step towards delivering fantastic results. This intensive one-day course covers everything you need to polish your portrait & wedding images to a standard that will delight your clients. 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 Fitzwilliam College in Cambridge which, unlike most of the Cambridge colleges, is easy to get to by car. Lunch and refreshments are provided.

Feedback from previous seminars

"Many thanks for all the effort you put into the post production seminar it was without doubt the best seminar I've been on (and I've been on quite a few). The volume of information was excellent and the day was so well structured."

"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."

"I really enjoyed meeting you and also got a lot from the seminar...I'll be setting myself homework!"

Booking tickets

Tickets are priced at £90. To find out more about the workshop or to book tickets, please contact me directly.

SWPP conference and trade show

Posted in Seminars at 20:08 on 13/01/2010

Apologies for the lack of posts over the last couple of weeks - 2010 has got off to a hectic start for me! With a wedding in India, a major new release coming up from Light Blue Software and the forthcoming SWPP trade show, it's been a busy time.

Once again, the wonderfully talented children's photographer Helen Bartlett is going to be presenting a masterclass at this year's SWPP conference. She'll be speaking about her approach to photographing children on location on Saturday afternoon, 15:00-17:00.

I'll be manning the Light Blue Software stand and demoing Light Blue: Photo throughout the trade show, so do please come and say hello if you're visiting.

Post-production seminar disc available

Posted in Seminars at 08:10 on 10/11/2009

Earlier this year, I presented a series of post-production seminars for Calumet. The seminar taught the post-production skills you need to finish your portrait & wedding photographs to a professional standard and was accompanied by a disc containing:

A detailed guide covering black & white conversions, practical portrait retouching and creating special effects.

A set of Photoshop actions that automate the techniques described in the handout.

I'm not planning to repeat the post-production course, but I've had a lot of interest from photographers who missed it so I'm making the disc available separately. It's available for a limited period for £35 and you can order your copy from this page.
