Got lots of pictures … (but need a tweak?)

We’ve teamed up with a top professional retoucher, who’ll reveal all his Lightroom secrets, 1-to-1.


Half Day Workshop | By Zoom | £100


We’ve all surfed the web, watched a few ‘How To’ videos, bought magazines, books, downloaded free eBooks …. but ended up none the wiser. Retouching tips are either too complicated, too fast or simply teach something that looks in the end, well, not that great.

Sadly, there’s not much time during our fabulous photography holidays to learn the deeper art of retouching, so … we’ve teamed up with Ryan Davies, top professional advertising retoucher for the likes of Puma, BBC, FatFace, Snow & Rock, Conde Nast and Endemol, who’ll show you how, 1-to-1.

He’ll show you all the tricks he uses on all his advertising jobs, whether that’s from his recent assignment for Puma shooting Lewis Hamilton, or on location this year in Thailand, Trinidad & Tobago, and South Africa.

As you might imagine, retouchers of this calibre are £££, but thankfully he’s agreed to a hugely discounted rate of £100 per session.

So, come join us, learn retouching – live – guided – and turn those images sleeping on your PC into trophies!

"Today there is too much retouching, and I don't like it, except on me."

- Carine Roitfeld

What you'll learn ...

Each image needs it’s own recipe to shine, not a few generic styles or plug-ins.

How about actually improving your images, with a 1-to-1 tutor, a program customised exactly to you, at your own pace? Using your images as examples.

On our half-day 1-to-1 retouching workshop, we’ll give you simple, clear instruction at each stage of the process. (There’s no-one else there, so you can tailor the program to suit your exact needs). We’ll try out a range of different styles, and use only your images, so half the job is already done.

At a date and time that suits you both, Ryan will guide you live (even showing you remotely on your own PC) every trick, tip and contemporary style he’s used in 20 years retouching advertising images. He’ll start at a level that suits you best – helping you gently enhance your work so it retains the essence of each picture.

In summary, you’ll get,
  • A half-day live workshop 1-to-1 with a top advertising retoucher
  • Remote access to your PC to show you each technique in detail
  • Using your own images so you end up with a collection with more punch
  • Suitable for all levels of tech skill
