His desire to produce creative work is one that has driven him from a very young age at the point he first picked up a camera, "Photography is for me simply a creative passion, the ability to use light and form to capture in a single solitary image what I see within my own imagination at that point in time…"

This first retouching session is based at those that do not have much experience with photoshop and its aim is to get you a lot more comfortable with what at times can seem like a bit of dark art that can quickly become quite confusing. Tim will be stripping back the jargon and taking a look at what he views are the essential building blocks to understand so that you can edit your work with confidence and also enjoy that process, being creative, without being too weighed down in complex technical methods.

This class is the second of two that Tim is giving and is based at the intermediate level of retouching. Tim will be taking you through some of his work and giving you the unique ability to see how these images were carted and created from a retouching point of view. He will be working through what is required to have in place when shooting and editing composites so that not only do you understand how these are crafted but also what you need to think of at the point were you are shooting the files for retouching later. We will look at how we effectively blend layers with ease as well as more advanced techniques that Tim had developed himself for his won workflow such as colour matching two separate layers into a single image for a much more authentic and accurate final piece of work.

Inspired Business with Tim Wallace
Seminar Booking Link
Taking nice pictures is not enough to be a successful photographer. It takes a well thought out business strategy and crucially a good understanding of how the process of selling yourself works. Photographer Tim Wallace is an absolute master in this field – he is the driving force and creative mind behind Ambient Life and works internationally with many high end brands. In this business based session he will take you through the thought and work process of building up a successful photography business to achieve a positive global reputation, positioning yourself successfully within your chosen industry. This is something that Tim is very aware of having built a successful business himself and a respected name over recent years from scratch. The seminar will help you to look at how to start making the right informed choices, the questions that you need to ask yourself, and how to set a clear vision for your own path to success rather than just 'hope' things work out for you. You will learn how to think laterally about your brand and direction, style of work and industry sector and how those differ and demand different approaches. Tim will look at how to approach agencies and how to effectively make those first steps and approaches to clients. And most of all and utterly crucially it will be about understanding your position better within the field and how to put yourself and your work across in such a way that your clients understand your benefits to them and not just that you can take nice pictures. It is about becoming a monster in your industry and creating a need for what you do and not just sitting there and waiting for the phone to ring.
