Let me ask you a question. What would your business and personal life look like if you were no longer spending every spare moment editing client galleries?
- Would you be able to book those extra five sessions?
- Give a more elevated experience to you clients?
- Start that new podcast you’ve been dreaming of?
- Or simply make space for the weekend again?
I help busy portrait, wedding, and lifestyle photographers gain more time so they can get back to doing what matters most. Outsource your photo editing today.
When you decided to become a professional photographer I bet you never imagined how much time you would spend behind a computer screen editing. Every photographer I work with has come to me because they have hit a point where editing is holding them back from doing the work that will have the biggest impact on the success of their business and personal life.
If you think you are getting to that stage then I am here to help. Hiring a private photo editor has the potential to radically transform your workflow, your business, and your life FOR THE BETTER.
I am a pro film photographer with over 20 years of experience. No two photographers are the same and I pride myself in the fact that I will always provide a bespoke editing service that meets all of your needs; it is never a case of just copying and pasting the latest preset!

I offer a full-service outsourcing service for photographers across the Globe. I keep my pricing structure simple and transparent so you never have to guess how much you are going to spend. Below is a detailed guide of what is included in my editing package.
I’m a Lightroom ninja who loves helping busy professional hybrid and fine-art photographers reclaim their time. I specialize in hybrid photography editing and film emulation for digital photographers.
Editing is my jam and, with over 20 years’ experience working as a film photographer, you can trust me to provide high-quality and consistent edits that match your unique style.
Voted as “Problem Solver of the Year” and “Customer Service Ninja” by work colleagues, I thrive on serving others to the absolute best of my ability. It has been hugely rewarding working with and empowering fellow photographers to reach for and achieve their wildest dreams.
Living the digital nomad life, I split my time between the hills of the Peak District National Park in England, the coast of Central California and the hustle and bustle of New York City.
There are a lot of great photo editors out there offering a very similar service, but what they don’t have is me! When you hire me as your private photo editor, you aren’t getting just another service; you are getting a personalised experience and your biggest cheerleader! An accountability partner who wants you and your business to reach its full potential. Someone who truly understands film and hybrid photo editing. I want to help you propel your business to the next level in a sustainable way.
You can rest assured that I will do my darndest to make sure your photos look their absolute best. I will invest a lot of time and energy in getting to know you, your photography preferences, your unique brand, and your visionary goals. That is why I only work with a handful of photographers every year and never do one-off or temporary editing projects.
Elevating a photographer’s work so that it shines is what makes me happiest. I don’t just edit for you. I edit with you so we can create something beautiful together.
I do not provide test edits. This is because private photo editing is a long-term game. I work extremely closely with clients to truly understand their style and vision. It often takes 3-5 full galleries for an editor to truly get into the groove of a particular editing style.
In my experience test edits do not accurately demonstrate an editor's ability nor the potential for a great working relationship. The best way to find an editor is to chat with a few and find the one your gel with best!
Unlike other private photo editors, I don’t have set turnaround times. Instead, I work with each of my clients to create a bespoke editing schedule that fits their unique business workflow. It is a tried and trusted system that my clients rave about!
Why does it work? Because it helps my clients stay accountable to their agreed editing schedule. It also gives me enough time to edit accurately and consistently. And the best part? We can optimise gallery delivery times so you can provide the best client experience possible. Bye, bye rushed deadlines!
I will use whatever preset you feel works best! In my arsenal I have access to The Archetype Process (formerly C1ick), Mastin Labs, Noble, Refined and Lily James.
Do you use a different preset? Let’s talk. I am always happy to invest in a new preset if it works for you.
Not happy with any of the presets you’ve tried? We can experiment. Usually with the right tweaks, we can make one of the big-name film-emulation presets work!
I work exclusively in Adobe Lightroom Classic 10.0 or later. Unfortunately I am unable to use earlier versions since Adobe and Big Sur only allow me to have one version on my computer.
You will also need a Dropbox account for file transferring.
Simple and supportive is how I run things around here.
I use Lightroom Smart Previews and Dropbox.
To help you out, I have created a suite of videos that will walk you through the entire process. It is as simple as 1.2.3. And rest assured that I can be on hand if you need further support.
My basic Lightroom edit consists of the following actions:
-Film-matching (if applicable)
-Basics Panel adjustments
-Tone Curve adjustments
I am happy to apply filters and brushwork for an additional fee.
Please see my pricing guide for more detailed information.
Cass is a lifesaver! Before I started using Cass for my editing, I felt like my work owned my life. I was photographing many shoots every week, and staying up late nights to edit all my work. I was burnt out from burning the candles at both ends and knew that I needed to get my life back. Enter Cass, one of the best things to happen to my business.
From the very beginning, Cass got to know me on a personal level with my business and workflow and really delved into how I specifically edited my photos for clients. She is so incredibly organized herself with her own systems, and made it really easy for me to schedule my calendar with her online, upload my photos to her for easy editing, and download them myself for easy delivery to my client. She was always diligent about checking in with me about her work and making sure I was happy with the results, which I really appreciated.
Within just a fews weeks of hiring Cass, I felt a literal shift in myself and in my business. My stress was diminished greatly, and I actually had quality time at night with my family. With all of my extra time as well, I was able to work on my business, not just in my business, developing new ideas for marketing and growth that turned into additional work and clients too. Cass truly gave me my life back and time to grow my business, and I will be forever grateful to her. If you have the chance, RUN, don't walk to hire her for your own business- you will be so happy you took the leap!
Like so many creative professionals who are also balancing family life, I was struggling to keep up with my work load. I had hired and really liked previous photo editors through my film lab, but there was never any guarantee of consistency because of employee turnover.
I felt heard and seen when Cass came along. My requests were met with enthusiasm instead of snide remarks and, as my work adjusted and evolved, Cass evolved with it. The time I've gained back has been such a gift.
I feel safe in Cass' hands and know that when a challenging wedding is put into a LR catalog and sent her way, she'll be open and honest about the flexibility and possibilities we can make happen. Her editing system is extremely user-friendly
And there's always a bit of magic that comes back! I can't thank Cass enough for the changes she's made to my workflow.
Working with a private photo editor is a very personal business decision. I want to make sure it is the right decision for both of us.
I choose to work with a very select group of photographers to ensure that I can deliver the best client experience tailored specifically to everyone’s unique style and brand. Because I put a lot of effort into custom-building a bespoke photo editing system for my clients, I am unable to offer short-term or one-off help with editing.
