David A Rogers – Group Manager


David A RogersDavid has been working in the photo industry since leaving college a long time ago. Born and raised in England, David studied photography at Blackpool and the Fylde College (Lancaster University) in the northwest of England. Since then he has worked for newspapers, cruiseships, portrait studios, and catalog publishers but it is in the post processing side of photography that he really thrives.

Initially working with C41 (color negative) E6 (color slide) and BW processing and printing, David moved to the digital realm in the late nineties with about the same enthusiasm as most photographers at that time. Progressing with Photoshop, Color Management and PrePress, David added Lightroom and asset management to his knowledge bank, this time with a lot more enthusiasm than most photographers.

He currently works as an independent retoucher, designer, and photographers assistant while teaching Photoshop and Lightroom. As an Adobe Certified Expert and User Group manager David fields many questions from clients, friends and complete strangers.
