I am a professional high-end image retoucher and photographer based in Leeds, UK.
I started out in my teenage years as a photographer, where I cut my teeth photographing local bands. I later went on to study a foundation degree in commercial photography, followed by a bachelor’s degree in just photography.

I spent several years working as a wedding and portrait photographer, and gradually moved towards the commercial side of things, the whole while retouching my own photographs. I then spent a few years working as an in-house creative retoucher for a CGI studio, before making the transition to full time freelance in September 2016.

I now spend the majority of my time working on-site with studios or agencies, or remotely at my home studio for independent photographers and designers.



I offer a professional and bespoke retouching service to your business. I understand that every studio, agency and photographer have their own methods and processes when it comes to post production. I am able to join you at your studio and seamlessly integrate into your production workflow. For those who prefer a hands-off approach and are focused mainly on the end results, I can work remotely from my own studio and transfer your retouched files at the end of each day or periodically throughout.

I have worked with a wide and varied client base, in almost every category and niche of the digital imaging industry; from mail order fashion catalogues, to food photography, to CGI and traditionally photographed room sets and product imagery.



For on-site bookings; simply contact me for an up-to-date schedule, or send over the dates you need me for and I will let you know if I am available.

For remote bookings; if you have the images ready, transfer them over along with a brief, and I will get back to you A.S.A.P. with a quote and timeframe for completion. If you need your images completing urgently, call or text me on the number below.
