Howard Neil Pugh (Marais)
Getty Image Contributing Photographer.
I am a design, space, lifestyle & travel photographer, with Getty images. A role that includes keeping up with current trends, submitting work for Getty Images creative briefs, editing, retouching and uploading images. It also requires correct completion of submission forms for licensing of bespoke images, and attaching signed model and property releases. I have four years experience in social media advertising skills.
I am committed. I value punctuality, integrity, learning & longevity in my chosen careers.
I commenced my lifestyle portfolio photographing the dancers and performers at Sun City, South Africa. Born in Zimbabwe/ Rhodesia.
Photo-shop and stitching together of images for highest definition. My camera of choice is the Nikon D850, with FX lenses. Mirror up photography adds to the image quality I am able to produce with the necessary help from Adobe Photo Shop Creative Cloud .
Photoshop - 6 years - (Adobe Master Class, Creative Cloud) and Lightroom - 6 years. I own the Nikon D 850, 70 - 300 and 24 - 70 mm FX lenses. In combination with Photoshop Creative Cloud, they give me my best studio and/or outdoor images. I have operated Hasselblad 6x6 and RB Mamiya / Pentax 6x7 formats (film only), as well as the Sinar 10x8 and Wista 10x8 (plate / sheet film).
