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…

Gordon Hickie comes of age – Sixty!

I was invited to join Kit Greveson and James Greveson Hickie to help celebrate Gordon Hickie's sixtieth birthday party in a school gym in North London on Sunday 14th September. Due to being too busy sorting myself out and diabolical traffic I arrived late.
Fortunately for a change, the weather was fine and bright, with the sun streaming through the high windows for much of the time.

The room was crowded with small groups of chatting friends and families, so I grabbed some food and sat down to eat something before grabbing my camera to try to capture some of the jollity.

In the main I was taking photos of the band members and those friends of Kit and Gordon that I knew or that I knew were family, and anything photogenic that caught my eye. I was fully aware that most people were taking their own pictures, so really that was all I was doing, the only difference being that my lens was less intrusive (though conspicuous of itself!) as I was generally further away.

I have put up this gallery so others can share the moments I saw and captured. I hope that they give you as much pleasure as I got from taking them.

Gordon is currently the Director of Photography for Holby City, with shows like Silent Witness to his name, and feature films such as Leon the Pig Farmer and Clockwork Mice.
