How to edit your photos in Lightroom, Photoshop, Photomatix

Technical Workshops

When I joined a camera club back in the day and was encouraged to enter some of my photography into the development class competitions I struggled with my images as the judges picked up a number of observations color tones, blown-out highlights and perhaps if you could have cloned that out and so on. Then I decided I needed to learn how to edit my pictures using photographic software and then an explosion happened, I spent thousands of hours using and learning the art of editing your images. One of my most successful early images was “Clockwork Orange” it won Print of the year in the Print competition at the Sussex Photographic Federation with a maximum score of 60 out of 60 it was the first award I ever won for my photography. So in 2014, I could not even clone out a “no fishing sign in the water” to creating Clockwork Orange and Autumn Shades Leaves of Betrayal.

So a little history above how and why I got into photo editing. I now do a number of workshop showing what can be done in Lightroom, Camera Raw, Photoshop and Photomatix.

Technical workshops include

HDR with Photomatix and Photoshop – combining multiple photos to create an HDR look.

Lightroom and Camera Raw – Basic Editing / Masks / Radial and Graduated filters

I offer several lecturer talks and workshop and am registered with both the Surrey Photographic Association (SPA) and the Sussex Photographic Federation (SxPF).


The presentations are all on Power Point so I will need a screen and projector which can link up to my laptop. If you do not have a projector please let me know so I can hire one. My rates are very reasonable so please contact me directly for more information. I travel all around Surrey, Sussex and parts of Kent.
