The advent of “Professional Digital Photography” has created a plethora of so called professional photographers who deliver not so professional photographic results. Many events are one off (a wedding cannot be re photographed the next day), or at least incur great expense to re photograph.
I am a bespoke professional photographer. I studied photography in London under the tutelage of an award winning portrait photographer. I still have many fond memories the darkroom, the distinct smell of the 3 chemicals used to print the photo. As a professional and a pragmatist, I have moved into the digital age of photography. The current batch of professional digital photographic cameras combined with powerful photo retouching tools such as Photoshop and Lightroom, give outstanding photographic results, with a very quick turnaround.
My photographic assignments have taken me to many far flung parts of the world, from photographing a classical orchestra on tour in Mexico and China, VIP photoshoots in Dubai and Morocco, and even to South Africa to photograph lions in a sanctuary.
As a photographer, I not only deliver the raw, unedited photos to you the client, I retouch the photos before sending. Here is an example of a stock photo shoot. Most people believe that once the photographer hands over the photos, they are ready for print or web output. Taking the photo is only half the job, they then need to be retouched, for example even if stock photos were taken in a professional photographic studio, the products may need photo retouching, generally the backgrounds need to be masked and cleaned out, portrait photos need to be retouched. Photos need to be prepared for the format that they are going to be used for; web sizes are completely different to print media. I also have my own company that specializes in retouching photos, check it out
