MarkGaler.com has been helping photographers for nearly a decade. Starting life as a very basic iWeb site to announce talks and seminars Mark was delivering around Australia. It gradually expanded to include resources for Mark’s numerous publications, eventually growing into a blog where he could share thoughts and tips about Image Capture and Post production image editing. Since then it has steadily grown thanks to the support of the thousands of visitors we receive each month.

The blog allows Mark to share insights and tutorials about products, without having to wait to write a book about the exiting developments in hardware and software that are changing the world of creative photography. It’s also a great way for him to stay connected with his many clients, professional colleagues, and students across the world.

The site has gradually become a resource for people to learn about image capture and image editing through easy step-by-step tutorials. Now, with the amazing range of learning resources, Photoshop actions and Lightroom Presets available on the site, users can quickly create stunning images—this gives Mark a lot of satisfaction, and is an offshoot of his love of sharing.

Since 2012, Mark has been joined by his co-author Dr. Abhijit Chattaraj along with Dorothy and Teagan as contributors to the team.


A seasoned professional photographer, educator, and author, Mark has also been a contributing editor for Australian Photography and Digital magazine, an Adobe Influencer and Photoshop Guru.

Mark published his 30th book with Focal Press in 2015, has served as a Senior Lecturer and Program Director of the BA Photography course at RMIT University in Melbourne, and is the Sony Imaging Ambassador for Australia.


Abhijit is an award-winning film and image maker. He combines his love of image-making with his his background in technology and gadgets.

He has co-authored two books with Mark on retouching using Adobe Photoshop Elements for Focal Press.

Abhijit helps maintain and manage the site and works closely with Mark in creating content for the site and our ever growing YouTube channel.
