At Inpho Photography I managed the picture desk for 6 years where I began my education in photo retouching thanks to Billy Stickland and Norman McCloskey. Since then I have worked for various photographers including Cathy Loughran, Derek Speirs and Patrick Bolger. I have worked with the Adobe suite for 20 years and am proficient in Lightroom and Photoshop.

I have designed several photobooks for my client Cathy Loughran Photography and have just published my own book ‘Time To Fly’.
I have created several websites including ones for the set designer Xavier Erra and journalist Teresa Bau. You can view some examples of my work here.
I give private classes in Adobe Lightroom and consider myself an expert after working with this amazing software since it’s inception in 2007.
