Ray Massey London still life photographers

"Having emerged from technical and creative backgrounds, 'Visual Engineering' best describes what I do.

I consider myself fortunate to have mastered an understanding of organic photography, "getting it right in camera" before embracing the digital medium.

I believe that photography and retouching are inextricably part of the same process of image creation and like to merge both disciplines early in the process, often encouraging the re-toucher to be involved in the shoot as Digi-Op.

Wherever possible I like to oversee the job to the end to ensure that creative and client achieve the result they imagined."
