Do you do all post-production work yourself?

Yes I do. Every final image I deliver to my clients undergoes digital post-production that I’ve developed over the past twelve years and more. This process involves colour correction, exposure adjustment, black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections.

Many photographers won’t (or don’t know how to) professionally process digital images. This results in their pictures being too dark, having strange skin tones, or other common photography flaws.

I use a fully colour calibrated workflow that ensures colours are always faithfully captured and reproduced.

What photography equipment do you use?

Nearly all photography I shoot now is on my beloved Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital SLR Camera with various prime and telephoto L series lenses. My favourite lens is definitely the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens because it’s a dream for shooting in low light situations without needing to use artificial light. It really is a truly beautiful piece of quality glass.

I’ve had a play with the Canon EF 500mm f4 L IS II USM Lens before, but it’s a little bit out of my price range! For colour management I use a CBL Lens, the ColorMunki and a Spyder Pro. Printing up to A3+ is taken care of thanks to my Canon PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II Printer and Ilford photographic paper.

Did you study photography at university?

Yes I did. I began formally studying photography in the year 2000 at Newcastle-under-Lyme college where I studied A Level Photography and A Level Film Studies alongside A Level English Literature and a City and Guilds in Film and Television.

I went on to study a Foundation course in Art and Design where I earned a distinction before moving to Blackpool in 2003 to get my BA (Hons) Photography degree and Masters in Visual Design as Creative Practice at Blackpool and The Fylde School of Art and Design.

In 2009 I had my first experience of teaching photography when I worked as an Associate Lecturer in Photography at the University of Central Lancashire.

Do you shoot in JPEG, Small Raw, or Large Raw?

I want the photography I shoot for customers and myself to be of the highest possible quality I can achieve with my photographic equipment, therefore I shoot all of my images, regardless of the job, in Large Raw using my trusty Canon 5D Mark II DSLR.

This enables me to make the necessary adjustments in post-production without degrading the image quality and ensures I can really get the most out of the work I shoot.
