Owner of Rephocus Imaging. All deviations on this page are my own personal work, not those of clients.

I like to draw, I like to take photos, I like to mess about in Photoshop.

I have a serious passion for photography, although I reckon I like the pursuit of images and the process of going out taking photos as much as, if not more than, the creation of the final image.

Further passions of mine are the retouching, recreation, manipulation and restoration of photographs. They may not have turned out right first time, they may have been damaged through age, the shot may have been ruined by people walking into the frame - but that doesn't mean they're beyond saving. I believe that any image has the potential to be amazing, as long as basic technical skills are observed.

Prince / Purple Rain
Been working on this when able to, since the day I heard the news. When I was considering a reference pic, I knew I wanted one from the epic 2007 Halftime Show at the Super Bowl - and Theo Wargo / Getty's incredible shot captured the essence of the show perfectly. 

Photoshop w/ Wacom Intuos Pro, ~20 hours. Light effects: Knoll Light Factory.

It was with great interest that I viewed a recent video posted by Buzzfeed in which four women reacted to being given a professional photoshoot, and extreme makeover via Photoshop. Their unanimous reaction was that they preferred the original "before" photographs, straight out of the camera, showing them as they'd appear in the mirror. My immediate reaction was "Great, more power to them"; after all, a woman who is confident in herself is far more attractive than one who is self-conscious, insecure and obsessed about how she appears to other people.
