If you have a question that isn’t covered on this page, please click on the button to the right to contact me directly. I’d be happy to answer your questions.
How much do you charge?
Depends on the work required. I charge on a ‘per image’ or ‘per job’ basis. Please send me a small JPEG or PDF with retouching instructions and I’ll be happy to provide you with a quote.
How long does it take?
Depends on the retouching required and the scope of the job. Typically images can be turned around within 24 hours. In a RUSH!? Talk to me..
How long have you been retouching?
Over 30 years!
Is there anything you can't retouch?
Working with so many subjects over the years I am comfortable retouching any image.
Do you have a particular 'style' of retouching?
No, images shouldn’t look retouched.
Have you always worked on your own?
I have been on my own for several years. Prior to that I worked in the pre-press industry retouching.
What is your training?
I took a five year apprenticeship in colour and pre-press. I have a creative, artistic background which lends itself well to retouching. I started in the 1980’s working on a mainframe retouching computer system called a: ‘HELL Chromacom system’ They were big, difficult to learn and expensive! Took months to learn the cryptic German commands. I also worked with PC’s, Silicon Graphics and Mac computers. Software programs included, Alias Eclipse and Barco Creator. I was exposed to retouching thousands of images for the biggest photographers and ad agencies in town. Tight deadlines, feedback and working with real pros made me the retoucher I am today.
No, only me!
Do you only work locally?
I work with people from all over the world. There are no limits.
Do you teach?
I used to teach new retouchers on various retouching software programs when I was in the pre-press industry, but I no longer teach.
