Hey Folks,

So how was your weekend?

Today I want to say a huge thanks to everyone that came to my Live Shoot & Retouching Seminar in Notting Hill, London on Saturday for the L.P.M.G [Link]; I had a blast!

It was great to see so many people there and to meet some many who I’ve got to know through social media like Facebook and Twitter but never actually met…cool stuff πŸ™‚

The 4 hour long seminar held at The Tabernacle Theatre saw me discussing the stories behind some of my pictures including how and why the images were lit a certain way, with Photoshop in mind; some on location shots and some studio based shots for compositing.

There was also a live photo shoot where I was joined by my Buddy Dave Clayton who dressed as The Editor followed by a complete retouch and then in the latter part of the day a whole host of quick fire Photoshop Tips, Tricks and Techniques.

On Stage with my great friend Dave Clayton aka ‘The Editor’ and top fellow Miguel Campos.

Always a good time when catching up with top travel photographer and great guy Richard Curtis [Link]. Was chuffed to bits that Richard joined me on stage for a short period and who as Adobe UK’s Digital Imaging Product Manager gave folks an overview of what Adobe Creative Week LIVE [Link] which runs from 9th – 13th July is all about and in which we’re both involved…can’t wait! πŸ™‚

Again, thanks to everyone who came along and made it such a fun event, and thanks too, to Alex Laberge who organised the event and whom I first met when I was Scott Kelby’s Guest Retoucher when he came over to London earlier this year with his Light It, Shoot It, Retouch It tour.
