However you like to learn, why not enjoy my free tutorials?

When I have time, this is where I’ll post tips, tricks and videos. Firstly, some videos of Photoshop tutorials, overviews of photoshoots and editing sessions using Lightroom and Photoshop. I will add more when I can! I hope if you find these useful, you might consider sharing them.

Just ask me!

If there is a specific Photoshop issue you regularly struggle with, please get in touch. Accordingly, I’ll reciprocate the effort and do my best to break it down for you so it makes sense.

As you may have noticed, there are usually several different ways to achieve the same result in Photoshop. To some extent, which one you use depends on your preference. Because no way is the right way or the wrong way. Although some may be quicker than others! The important thing is to find what works for you, not to mention what is easy to remember and replicable.

Always please yourself first.

Regardless of how you get there, what matters always is the final result. If you’re happy with it, it doesn’t matter how you arrived. Nor does it matter if no one else likes it, to be frank. As long as it makes you happy. But I can probably get you there with less trial and error.

If you book onto a course with me, you will hear me say (quite often) that there are key ways to improve a photograph, in terms of making it a more potent or compelling image in the eyes of the viewer. But ultimately, aim to please yourself.

I’m also available to process your images, or edit and touch up your work in Photoshop. Just get in touch for details.

Apologies for links to Shaneyoungweddings.co.uk and other websites at the end of some videos. I no longer shoot weddings and have removed those websites.
