Hello PP'ers :-)
Thank you for stopping by!
Who I Am
My name is Cam, I'm a Digital Artist & Retoucher from Australia.
Why I'm Here
Although I've been post-processing imagery longer than I care to admit, I've only (fairly) recently joined PP. In doing so, I'm hoping to increase my reach to creatives residing in/around the UK and broader PP Network.
How I Work
Most work, now, is undertaken on a TF* basis. This is an important point.
By TF*, I mean that in exchange for post-processing your shots, I may use two or three of my choice, non-commercially, in my portfolios. That's it.
Techniques I Use
Being somewhat 'old school', 95% of my processing is done by 'hand and eye' using techniques that pre-date contemporary push-button 'filters' and 'presets'.
The downside of this means I'm probably a lot slower than others who simply push buttons. Arguably, the trade-off in time is that I am able to produce better-quality results that are tailored more to your requirements.
I use an array of off-the-shelf software and a handful of custom-build scripts. Ironically, I rarely use Photoshop.
Styles & Levels
My PP Portfolio is not a reflection of the styles and levels I process: it's a minor subset only.
I'm happy to work most styles and most levels. I have a preference to work art-nude and below. I do not process pornography.
I confess that without explicit guidance, I can struggle with achieving the desired outcome for some raw/edgy/gritty styles. Effective communication is key.
My file format beliefs are this:
- RAW formats generally offer greatest flexibility;
- TIFF formats generally are much, much better than JPEG;
- JPEG formats generally limit the scope of what can/cannot be accomplished (easily).
Regardless, the bottom line is to provide the best quality version of your image(s) that you can.
If you deliver RAW or TIFF images for processing, you will receive TIFF and JPEG versions in return.
If you deliver JPEG images for processing, you will receive JPEG (and perhaps TIFF) versions in return.
Other arrangements by negotiation.
You are welcome to transfer your files by whatever means you so choose.
However, every 'client' I work with gets a folder share on a secure Google Drive. Processed images (TIFF's & JPEG's) are posted to the respective client folder share for access/download. These are retained (with access) for 1 month.
Copyright & Attribution
I take both copyright and attribution seriously.
Unless specifically requested not to, I will always attribute both Photographer & Model with any shots I publish. I don't require attribution, but it's always appreciated when provided.
I do not publish before & after images.
In my short time here, I've been lucky enough to receive some FPI accolades :-) Here they are:
Thank you for taking the time to read about me and what I do. If you're a Photographer or Model with one (or one hundred) shots you'd like processed or re-worked, please drop me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
