Welcome to my website. It is here that I teach, demonstrate and deliver my imaging knowledge and solutions.
Imaging has been a part of my professional life now for well over thirty years. During this time I have watched from multiple perspectives the transition from analogue through to digital.
I started in the days of film and chemistry. Working in Pre-Press, Graphic Design, Film and Photography. Image quality has been a common feature in all of these fields and so that became my primary field of expertise.
In these fields I have worked as a trainer, a developer, in management and as a consultant. One of my main goals is to create efficient workflows, returning the highest quality results in a cost effective time frame.
I worked as a consultant / presenter for Adobe and Apple, Nikon, Canon, Epson, HP and Xrite for many years. This added a different dimension to my experience which helps to give me a unique perspective.
This perspective is what I bring to this website where I teach my knowledge and philosophy. I am totally independent at this stage of my career in my opinions and views of software and hardware, I have no hidden agenda.
I deliver HD Video pre-recorded tutorials and live webcasts in which I deliver techniques, solutions and answer member's questions in Q&A sessions.
FUSE is my freeview creative news programme in which I review the latest developments in technology and people.
There is so much information avaliable to us all today in our web based lives. Here I just filter out my favourites and offer my impartial opinion.
I also include the funniest movies and jokes found on social media and end every show with a classic tune usually a long forgotten favourite track from the past.
FOCUS is my freeview imaging show. I use it to focus on a single aspect of my imaging world such as Contrast, Sharpening, HDR etc.
I find in my work of travelling and teaching that there is a growing lack of understanding of the basic theory due to a total acceptance that software itself sets the bar in expected quality.
I use this programme to demonstrate my own techniques and theories gathered in over three decades of experience.
"I thought I knew photoshop, I thought I was half decent but watching Guy in action and learning from him I realise that in fact I was a fat, balding, pub team player watching Zidane in action"Marc O’Sullivan OSD Photo Agency
"I’ve seen so many Photoshop tutorials, I really appreciate, when the result is predictable and repeatable. Your way of thinking is the only way I know (now!) which makes that possible. I can only thank you for sharing your skills! I haven’t thought longer than 1 second to pay the web membership fee -by far the best invested money I ever spent in stuff related to Photoshop. Thanks a lot Guy! "Michael, Germany
"Awesome! The most informed trainer I have had to pleasure to meet. I have already used some of his methods in my day to day work and THEY BLOODY WORK ! ! Excellent day ! "Peter, Concept Advertising
"As always... your descriptions and working methods which you have developed over time and regardless on which application you are demonstrating, is quite frankly second to none. The Aperture webinar which has just been broadcast, is another masterpiece in workflow methods. Which will ultimately mean a greater return on any investment for me and all my clients."Max, UK
"Refreshing to be shown a methodology and work-flow instead of the usual tips & tricks and funky toolbars. I have already put many of the things taught in place and am already seeing both improvements in the quality of my work and a significant increase in time-efficiency. "Jannetje, Ireland
"Brilliant concepts explained so well. I now have a really good understanding of what the process is doing and how I can use it with my images. As an ex-wanger this has radically changed my approach to processing my images. Thank you so much. "Cheryl, Belfast
"Thanks very much for this on line seminar, I’ve enjoyed it and the new Range Replacement is stunning!!!!! "Omke, Netherlands
"I don't know why i bothered working for the last 14 years cos every time I watch this Bald Surfing Oakley Nut! I ditch most of what I know and start again! Thanks Again "Adam, UK
"Just watched all of the DVD's !!! I have been trying to learn Photoshop for nearly two years. I have watched hundreds of hours of tutorials and read 20-30 books on how to do things. I now realise that I know nothing, and that I have learnt only how to become a wanger "Colin, UK
"Content was mind blowing – as I do not have any work patterns or competence with PS I am able to start on the right foot. Guy takes all the tech out of it & boils it down to common sense. It took away my frustration "Jim, Australia
"I loved the seminar and even though it was my second time to attend, I still got so much out of it. I wish I had known all of this ten years ago when I started to work on PS- I think of all the stress and many hours of labour that could have been avoided. "Yohti, Australia
"It was fantastic to meet & learn from you. The most informative & enlightening workshop, we have ever done. Midblowingly amazing stuff & we can't wait to implement it into our studio. "Brad and Karva, Brisbane
"It blew my mind. I only went to one session colour to mono where I realized I have wasted years of my life 'wanging sliders' to do things which can take seconds, be repeatable and predictable. Guy said 'you're laughing' - this was because I want those years back - made me feel a bit foolish "Glen Flower. Brisbane
"Guy the courses you presented were bloody fantastic and will certainly change most things I currently do!. I have already run tests comparing your recommendations against what I currently do and in every case (as expected) your way is vastly better. Luckily for me I love change! "Andrew, Hobart
"I’ve seen colleagues ‘go digital’ and suffer loss of time and quality in their business. Guy Gowan isn’t selling yet another magic bullet –his methods are coherent and logical and our investment in training with Guy is saving Photogenic considerable time and money. "Margaret, Photogenic Photographers, Dublin
"A revolution in my head!! "Anastasia, Russia
