About Me

Hi! Thank you for visiting my profile!

[b]Rates:[/b] All photographers want to see per image rates but most retouchers are reluctant to make quotes until they see the images. There's a reason for this! All jobs are wildly different. However, I can offer some "per image" rates as guidelines:

[b]Head Shots/Portraits[/b] - Primary focus on bringing out the most of a model's unique personality and style. Preserving and enhancing the subject's individuality while perfecting the overall image. $20/image

[b]Editorial Fashion[/b] - Special attention paid to composition, color and high-end (no blur) skin retouching. Emphasis on clothing, accessories and building a cohesive style and story. $30/image

[b]Glamour[/b] - Emphasis on full body contouring, hair/makeup enhancement and fine detail skin work. More glossy than editorial fashion. Pure fantasy. $45/image

[b]Beauty/Hair[/b] - Pixel by pixel retouch including fine detail high-end skin retouching, contouring and hand painted enhancement of hair and makeup. Thorough perfection. $65/image

[b]Extras[/b] - compositing, complex background swaps or other intense additonal tasks will be billed at $30/hour.

[b]TFP/Trade[/b] - I am always striving to improve my portfolio so will always be open to working on a tfp/trade basis. If you have source images that could give me a real opportunity to improve my portfolio, if your nice and you're not in a big hurry, please don't be shy and shoot me a message.

[b]Please keep in mind[/b] - Photoshop is a powerful tool but there are some things that just cannot be fixed. Images that are out of focus or more than 1.5 stops off proper exposure will not be accepted.

[b]Deadlines[/b] - Some people thrive under extreme pressure and deadlines. I'm not one of them. When asked to meet unreasonable deadlines, my work suffers and so do I. If you are the kind of person that is always in a hurry, we're probably not a good match. If you're looking for someone who's steady and reliable and strives for high quality over speed, let's talk...

[b]About me:[/b] I am a trained photographer with a special affection for photoshop and retouching. As a photographer, I'm most attracted to beauty, fashion and glamour but, as a person, I love the outdoors and small town living. To pursue my passion in photography would mean living in a big city so I've chosen to pursue retouching because it allows me to work in the genres I find most interesting without having to live someplace I don't want to live. Through retouching, I can experience other photographers' visions and passions and enjoy amazing collaborations while still enjoying a peaceful life in the country...
