I use Photoshop professionally for almost every aspect of my work; for example many of the images and concept designs in my projects page are created using it. All my speaker promotion images are created from scratch using PS. I have wide experience of image manipulation for Film/TV graphics and images to suit model projects or unusual distortion situations; such as fitting a graphic on to a contoured surface. The following are examples of retouching and design for various projects. If you require any graphics use in Film/TV or web advice please get in touch.
Website image Optimisation/Online Brand design:
A year spent as account handler and Creative Lead for a music website company in Manchester (SONY MUSIC sites mainly) opened my eyes to image optimisation for web use and this is a subject I remain heavily involved with. A key interest is web site usability and navigation.
Graphic branding, cross platform design (flyers/stickers/Livery) and aesthetic development:
The Film Place
The Film place is one of the earliest Digital cinemas in the UK and is a collaboration with The Buckingham University. I created the look and design for a brand that could work in local paper adverts, online and for tickets and signage. Logo design also;
Paul O’Grady Show
Numerous and various graphics for live action props:

RHINO Concept animated GIF:
A simple animation showing original image and the processes required to create this effective live media Augmented Reality piece.
AV unit demo animated GIF:
A tripod shot in-situ stop frame, useful for showing clients and website visitors design and build points.
Paris snap edit:
A family snap with far too much going on in the background! I removed the excess tourists and trued up the perspective. Increasing the flag stone area allowed proper centring of subjects, my wife and child.
Shark catch edit: A friend had caught this terrific specimen but was put off the image by all the bright red blood! A little tinkering later and it is a much rarer beast. Party invite/ELLE cover:

Tingewick Beer Festival Logo:
Having been heavily involved with the Festival in 2007 I adapted my original logo to suit a round format allowing wider use and design variety.
WiiWimbledon charity tournament:
The first ever collective tournament using the terrific Wii device. I helped Blue sky this and developed the flyers and web forms as a contribution:
