 Colin Wisdom

Colin is our new Photoshop/ Lightroom trainer who discovered a love for photography in his teens (just a few years ago!), starting in the traditional route of black & white, self-developing and studied for a GCSE in the subject too. Fast forward a few years and working in I.T. it was inevitable that he would turn to the digital side of photography and did so in 2000. Since then he has  continued to explore photography, never far from being able to grab a photo when he can, be it as a part time wedding/portrait photographer or for his own enjoyment.  He was an easy convert to the digital darkroom and how it has made photography & editing far more accessible to everyone. Colin’s combined IT background and experience in both using and teaching Photoshop and Lightroom only add to what Imber Court Photo training are able to offer our clients.
