About Peter

With 20 years passion and involvement in the printing and publishing industry I have gained a wealth of experience up to a senior level in best practice workflows, photography, retouching, pre-press, printing, colour, IT and graphic design.

In management roles (9 years) I work well with all levels of staff and consistently achieve above my targets.

Thinking outside the square I've designed and implement workflow changes necessary to be efficient, cost effective and accountable from lens to design to print/output. I've also trained, advised and exchanged information with countless photographers, designers, printing and media industry professionals.

With the decline in print media and the mainstream introduction of Digital Photography in 2007 I took on the role of Studio Manager and have developed into a profession photographer.

Prior to leaving full time work in tradition media I self trained in DSLR Video, Website development and hosting to a proficient level.

I'm currently busy freelancing in a wide variety of roles and always happy to hear from new clients big or small.
