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.

Thanks to everyone who came along to yesterday's workshop on post-production for portrait & wedding photographers - it was great to have so many people travelling from all over the UK to Cambridge for the day.

I'll be putting another post-production workshop on early in 2011, so please get in touch if you'd like me to let you know when the date is announced.


Reminder: professional photography talk at Apple Store in Soho, New York

Posted in Seminars at 15:13 on 22/10/2010

I'm heading out to New York next week with Light Blue Software and Apple have kindly invited me to give a talk at one of their biggest stores while I'm out there. On Friday 29 October at eight PM, I'll be giving a talk about running a photography business on a Mac at the Apple Store in Soho.

Many thanks to Apple for being so supportive - it's not every day that you're described as a "preeminent UK wedding photographer"!

If anyone's got any questions about the talk, please get in touch.


Last chance to book November's post-production workshop

Posted in Seminars at 08:28 on 15/10/2010

November is creeping up on us, which means that the post-production workshop I'm hosting in Cambridge on 8 November is nearly here. Booking closes on Friday 22 October, so get in touch now if you'd like to come along.

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

"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."

Thanks to everyone who came along to my first talk at the Apple Store on Regent St, London last night - it was great to have such a large and enthusiastic audience.
