Which software do you edit your images with and how?
I have optimised my workflow around my tried and tested favourites: Adobe Bridge and Adobe PhotoshopPhotoshop will always be my go-to because of the labour-intensive and precise, detailed retouching work I do so I prefer not to have unnecessary steps in-between the initial review process and the final product.

Do you prefer location or studio?
I am trained and competent in both, but I must admit that a good location just adds so much to a photograph. Working on location lends itself to endless possibilities concept-wise and therefore suits my style best, but I do love the technical aspects of working in studio as well.
