Welcome

I am Rod Wynne-Powell, and this is my way to pass on snippets either of a technical nature, or related to what I am currently doing or hope to be doing in the near future.

A third-person description follows:

Professional photographer, Lightroom and Photoshop Workflow trainer, Consultant, digital image retoucher, author, and tech-editor for Martin Evening's many 'Photoshop for Photographers' books.

For over twenty years, Rod has had a client list of large and small companies, which reads like the ‘who’s who’ of the imaging, advertising and software industries. He has a background in Commercial/Industrial Photography, was Sales Manager for a leading London-based colour laboratory and has trained many digital photographers on a one-to-one basis, in the UK and Europe.

Still a pre-release tester for Adobe in the US, for Photoshop, he is also very much involved in the taking of a wide range of photographs, as can be seen in the galleries.

See his broad range of training and creative services, available NOW. Take advantage of them and ensure an unfair advantage over your competitors…

Artists' Day at Luton Hoo's Walled Garden

After a lengthy trip back from Durham, and a night's rest, I spent the morning getting myself sorted for the next photographic sortie – another trip just down the road to Luton Hoo Estate, where the middle of the day was designated a day for artists and photographers. Upon my arrival I pulled up to see Charlotte Phillips with a fork in hand busily putting the finishing touches to weeding and tilling a small patch just outside the octagonal wall of the Gardens.

I was determined to capture this moment so that no one could ever accuse her of not getting her hands dirty! Charlotte heads up the project to bring these gardens back into use and restore them to their former glory – a daunting task for which I hope some of my pictures may help to provide evidence of all those volunteers who give of their time to this never-ending onslaught against weather and bugs, and of some of the beauty already to be found from their hard work.

I went quietly around engaging with the artists and photographers to ensure that no one minded my taking their photographs, and tried to capture the spirit of what had turned out to be a glorious summer afternoon. I found myself chatting to several artists and one or two fellow photographers, and the results of this sojourn are also to be found in the Galleries section on the right.

Sunday will see me visiting friends of mine, Kit Greveson and Gordon Hickie, and their son James, to celebrate Gordon's 60th! Gordon is director of photography for Holby City, who also directed Leon the Pig Farmer and Clockwork Mice. I think I see another gallery coming on…

Next weekend another photographer friend of mine Nick Rayner will join me to visit the Goodwood Revival Meeting as a guest of Lord March, so hopefully another gallery of images…
