Professional Photography – Retouching – Web Design – Consultancy
The site contains lots of information about our Professional Photography, Retouching, Web Design and Consultancy services. It also has many professional and personal photography folios, as well as many images highlighting my retouching.
There are also extensive articles, packed with technical and creative ideas. These are updated regularly.
The site is fully responsive, and will function on desktop, tablet and mobile devices, however, there’s no doubt that the images look better when displayed larger, and my preference is to always view on a desktop device where possible.
With the rise of social media, and especially photographers’ groups on Facebook, many aspiring photographers send me messages and emails asking for advice. I often write articles that try to assist up and coming photographers, in an attempt to pass on some of the knowledge that has been hard fought for, or gifted to me, over the last 40 years.
I will be constantly updating the site with useful information.

“The Inverse Square Law” – YouTube Masterclasses – Caveat Emptor – Recently, I’ve been trawling YouTube, looking at the advice that is available to people who are looking to improve their photography. There’s some great information out there, but there’s also a raft of hollow tutorials, and the usefulness varies greatly.
I stumbled upon a video that was an interview with a well-known, online photo educator. The discussion was interesting and thoughtful. It contained many aspects of photographic technique and kit. In passing, the discussion touched upon the “Inverse Square Law” (ISL), and the importance of understanding it, as it applies to lighting for photography.
I thought that was interesting, as I hadn’t looked at it since college, so I thought I’d brush up, and do some research, by looking at some tutorials on YouTube with fresh eyes…
I am minimising my social media footprint – getting the monkey off my back…
So, I’ve started a blog… So what?
I want to try to put down some thoughts and ideas that may help others. I won’t be calling it a blog. I will uses the term “Articles”.
I have now been shooting for a while and have picked up some valuable experience along with lots of tips and tricks. Those of you that know me, know that I may have an opinion or two, on the subject of photography 😉
Why am I minimising my social media footprint?
Well, social media platforms are great. In principle, they allow creatives and content makers to share information quickly and effectively, however, they are fraught with many small issues, that when grouped together become a “really big Issue”.
They can impose “community standards” that are frankly ludicrous, and they can impose penalties and bans with impunity.
On balance, I think it’s better for me to have a smaller audience who are actively engaged, rather than to take a broad, scatter gun approach to ideas and discussions that are judged by anonymous administrators.
I will promote this website and my articles using social media, but the content will remain on a platform that I control.
Feel free to comment and engage. I will be moderating the comments, but I will not edit or amend any comments that are negative, as long as they are in good faith, and contribute to the subject at hand.
Note: Inflammatory or abusive language will not be tolerated, and your comments will simply not appear.
Welcome to my new Blog/Vlog – from this point blogs become Articles… Ready, Steady, Go!
So, this is where I’ll post all of my comms from this point. I will reference this blog on Social media. It will be full of info, tips and reviews, and also stuff and nonsense. You can sign up and become a member of the blog. BY doing this you’ll have access to some advanced features.
Update: Well, a lot has happened since the launch, including a global pandemic.
I really hope that you, your families and friends have faired well during this difficult period for the whole world.
I’ve been locked away recreating this new website, as well as hoing my retouching skills.
In fact what you are viewing is the second iteration of the site as it was converted to a different platform over the first 6 months of 2021.
I am slowly adding the historic information…
A lrage preporotion of my career is pre digital so there’s still lots to do.
If you enjoy the image do come back as I will be reviewing and adding more as I time allows.
In spite of the good news that Lockodwn will finally end in the UK soon and the fact that I’m “double Jabbed” I’m baning on restrictions carrying on for quite a few months yet. So I must get on…
Busy, busy, busy.
I hope you like the new blog format (Articles) – Colin
