Hello photographer friends and welcome to my photo editing lab! If you’re feeling snowed under with too much in your editing queue, or just tired of spending countless evenings in front of a screen instead of with your family, then you’ve come to the right place. Editing is a very important part of your photography, but when it begins to take up too much of your valuable time, it may be worthwhile outsourcing it to a Lightroom wizard (such as myself). This will enable you to spend your hours more wisely, shooting more photos, posting favourites on Instagram, or doing other things such as having a life.
Starting from £0.25 per image (depending on quantity of images – please enquire for a personalised quote)

I tailor my work for each unique photographer and will craft the editing to match your signature style. You can send me any Lightroom presets you currently use for your edits, and I also have the Mastin Labs Fuji Lightroom preset pack which I can use as a base to achieve the light, airy pastel look if you request. If you’d like, I can also help you to create an editing style which suits your work, or develop your current techniques to bring out the very best in your images.
Lightroom Editing is my favourite part of the whole photography process, and I love being able to help other photographers by taking care of some of their workload for them. I think it’s important to have a personal editor to ensure consistency in what you deliver to your clients, therefore I only work with a select few photographers so you can be sure that it’ll always be me editing your photos.
You don’t need to keep your clients waiting for months during the peak season, as turnaround for weddings sent to me for Lightroom Editing is approximately 5-10 business days (3-5 business days for shorter sessions). Turnaround times can vary, depending on both the quantity of images and where we are in the season, and I will always give you an estimated delivery date upon receiving your catalogue.
I have the latest version of Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, or alternatively Adobe Lightroom 5 if you are not yet using the Cloud applications.
I work on just the Smart Previews in Lightroom so there is no need for transfer of the actual RAW files, but I can only work on photos that were originally shot in RAW format (not JPG). It’s a fairly simple process and I am happy to talk you through it and provide support if you’re new to Lightroom.
I offer a free trial-edit for prospective clients, where you can send over a few images for me to style-match.
I also offer a Photoshop Retouching Service for which there are more details below.
If you have an enquiry about any of my editing services, do get in touch with more information so that I can give you a personalised quote based on your needs. You can contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a chat and to arrange a trial-edit to see if we would be a good match. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
