I am not a photographer, so I'm not familiar with specific requirements like software, but I have had Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 (model # is 20187; not sure if that makes a difference) for several weeks now and it sounds like it will meet your needs, especially given the requirement for a decent keyboard. The island-style keyboard on this feels as good as my ThinkPad X120e, which is a similarly-sized laptop, if somewhat fatter. I personally think the keyboard is much better than the Microsoft Surface's, since it feels like a real notebook keyboard. On the other hand, it's probably a little thicker than the Surface. Specs here say it is about 0.6" high.
I was about to mention the Yoga, fits perfectly into your budget and uses the full version of Windows 8, allowing for proper workflow and good viewing as well. It also means you have access to a good gallery for viewing, and Lightroom for editing (Because it's not RT).

Which Lenovo Yoga has full Windows 8 yet still comes in under £500? The Ideapad with RT is also called the Ideapad Yoga 11, that's the only one I've seen that's in budget. If you can show me one running full Win8 for around £500, and with a days worth of battery life then I'm sold.

Um, yeah, except as stated above I will never own an iDevice. I'm not doubting that they're great devices, I just dislike the company (and I'm not wanting to start a fanboy/flameboy war about it, just stating my personal choice). Thanks anyway.

Have you looked into a Nexus 10?

Actually iPad fails on almost all counts of his requirements.
As for suggestions, I can't give you any, because I love the iPad's and doesn't look like thats what you want, even though, it has the storage, it has the keyboard solutions, it has good office solutions and with the SD card attachment, it has that as well.

The only other thing I can suggest is Surface then, since it has the microSDXC slot, and also USB ports for other connectivity.
