Gethin Coles has been photographing for 30 years; professionally for 12 years. He has a degree in film and video and worked as a freelance cameraman - using both 16 and 35mm film and video - in London before moving to Australia in 2001. He has been specialising in Architectural and Real Estate photography since then. He has wide knowledge of the photographic process - covering film formats from 35 mm through to 6x7 roll fim, and as a lighting cameraman and occasional "gaffer" experince with controlling and lighting a scene. He has extensive experience with digital technology - both in SLR cameras (he uses Canon Cameras and lenses) - and with computer technology. This means digital photo manipulation and retouching using the industry standard - Adobe photoshop. In fact his photoshop experience dates back to 1995. This enables him to control the light and enhance the mood of a scene - but to bring out the best of what the lens sees - without overtly (and illegally!!) distorting or manipulating the truth of a scene.
