Hi welcome to Rutlandweb.co.uk, I’m Simon Houghton and I have been working in the Creative world for the last 15 years. I consider myself a Digital Imaging Specialist with skills in many fields from Web Development, Photo Retouching, Photography, Blogging, WordPress and many other areas of Website & Image Creation.
I’ve been building websites since the late 1990’s so I know all sorts of ways of making websites, but recently I focus on WordPress Driven websites that use the Genesis Framework, these are perfect for small business and creative people who want a web presence online that they can control, if they want to, if not I’m always here to help out.
Over the years I’ve created hundreds of affiliate marketing websites like one of my main sites www.toychief.co.uk, over the last year though I’ve been working with local businesses to help them with their web presence.
If you would like to find out more about what I can do to help you with your web project then you can find out more about my Rutland Web Design Service here and you can also take a look at some of the projects I’ve worked on in my Website Portfolio here. I look forward to working with you.
Since finishing my HND in Photography and Digital Imaging in 1998 I’ve been fascinated by the possibilities of Photoshop and the Digital Imaging world. During this time I’ve worked with many Photographers and Printers in both employed and freelance roles.
Most of my Retouching work has been in the Home Decor field, working on images and brochures for the likes of B&Q, Symphony and Mearway to name a few. If you would like to take a look at some of the photographs I’ve worked on please take a look at my Retouching Portfolio here.
I consider myself very capable using both Photoshop and Lightroom to get the very best out of your images. I’m meticulous, professional and I have a very good attention to detail, I’ll keep working on an image until its perfect, but I work quickly and efficiently.
Although Photography has been a passion of mine for many many years, its something that’s been somewhat neglected over the years since I did a HND in Photography. Recently though I’ve got back into it in a big way and have begun to invest in some proper kit.
I would say that at the moment I’m an enthusiastic Amateur but I have intentions to step up to the professional level over the next few years.
Photography is something I love to do and I think I have a good eye for composition, I’m currently trying to find out which style of Photography is right for me and learning and re-learning lots about the Photography world.
If you would like to see some of my images then you can take a look at my Blogs Photography Section or start following me on Flickr.
