Whether taking and making photographs just for me or for other people, my photographs undergo digital post-processing which ensures that the final
|image is of the highest quality of visual, and tonal, acuity e.g. sharpness, clarity, detail, colour hue and balance, composition …
I also restore damaged physical photos almost to their original condition. e.g. old photographic prints, black and white or colour which have been damaged by natural, man-made, or environmental causes, age or sheer neglect. I begin a restoration by making an electronic photocopy of the original. Using a variety of sophisticated digital editing tools and techniques, I work on the copy to repair visible damage such as tears, creases and scratches and remove dirt, stains, fading, colour casts and evidence of age. I can even reconstruct and replace bits of a photo that have been torn or are missing completely.
Before finally quitting the commercial rat-race to pursue a creative lifestyle in photography, I worked in advertising, marketing services, public relations and website development. Prior to that, I served in the British Royal Navy. I live in Herefordshire in England.
