I have been a retoucher for over twenty five years. Originally, I was a hand - retoucher working with transparencies on a light-box using bleaches and dyes, then progressed to working digitally when the transition from conventional retouching to digital took place.

I have worked in both major colour labs and repro houses with top creative photographers, graphic designers and ad agencies in the UK. My work has appeared in most leading fashion, beauty and style related publications and on billboards across the country.


Before starting my own company in 2004, I had successful working relationships with advertising agencies such as AMV BBDO, BMP, Redwood, McCann Erickson, Emap,  Winkreative, Ogilvy & Mather, J Walter Thomson, Bates, Burrows and Saatchi & Saatchi. 


Advertising campaigns have included Renault, Marks & Spencer, Deutsche Bank, BT, Volvo, The BBC, Sainsbury’s, Douwe Egberts, MFI, Clarks and Guinness.

I work with the latest edition of Photoshop (CC 2021) on a powerful Mac Pro with 32 GB of memory viewing on a fully calibrated Eizo colorEdge CG277 screen.


Working from my studio at home and using a file transfer system enables me to be available to my clients remotely at all times and to work with customers all over the world!
