Reconstructing the Past

By |November 7th, 2011|

The way we restore photographs today is quite different to the way images were restored before computers, but the concept remains the same.  Some restorations are purely objective;  the image has obvious damage with an obvious restoration solution.  Spots, tears and scratches are repaired, mould and stains removed and sometimes, the ‘jigsaw’ is pieced back […]

Photo Restoration and Retouching Books I LOVE!

By |October 28th, 2011|

Apart form one short  course back in 2000, I am completely self taught when it comes to Photoshop. I learnt from necessity when I was teaching in high schools, staying just one step ahead of my tech savvy students. It wasn’t until I started my business and in particular restoring photographs that I realised how […]

Digital Photography: It’s Child’s play

There are some amazing wedding photographers out there.  I am not one of them. 😕

Early in my career I worked as a portrait photographer and whilst I still shoot some portraits, I find myself mostly in front of the computer screen editing images for other photographers or photographing products.  But when my niece rang and asked for a […]

A touch of colour to brighten your day

By |October 12th, 2011|

I don’t remember when I first fell in love with photography but I do know it was at a very early age.

There are a few photos that I remember fondly from my childhood.  One of them is my parents’ wedding photograph which originally hung on the lounge room wall of the family home but was […]

Li’l Miss Chelsea

By |January 25th, 2011|

I was looking forward  to Christmas just past.  A chance to travel ‘home’ to the farm in beautiful Nowendoc, NSW where I grew up; to breathe the fresh mountain air, to see my family,  and to meet the newest member of our family,  Li’l Miss Chelsea.

I just couldn’t resist the chance to photograph this very […]

It pays to sit up the front!

By |January 22nd, 2011|

Last May, at very late notice I was asked to fill in for a speaker who had fallen ill, at the VAFHO State Conference in Yarrawonga.  I made my journey to Yarrawonga early in the morning and proceeded to set up in the large room which had been allocated for my presentation. There was still […]

A website makeover

By |December 6th, 2010|

I’m not the only one who has had a website makeover of late.  Some of my wonderful clients have realised the value of having great images on their websites and have sent their photographs to me for a little bit of sprucing up.   It’s amazing the difference that edited images can make to the appearance […]
