Processing and printing
I use Adobe Creative Cloud (Lightroom and Photoshop) and the Nik Efex suite to process my images on an Apple iMac (27 inch screen). I offer 1:1 training in using Adobe Lightroom - see tab at the top of this page for more details.

I print my own images with a professional A3+ Epson R3000 printer, using mainly Ilford Galerie Prestige and Fotospeed Smooth Pearl paper, or Permajet Oyster/Ultra Pearl for panoramics.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my images, and to Barbara Konig for taking this picture of me.
