High-end Retoucher of people and anything with fur.

Background includes many years as a NYC art director at some of the top advertising agencies, creating print and broadcast for clients like American Express, UPS, Canon, and Labatt Breweries. This, along with a love for painting and sculpture, enrich my vision as a retoucher. Understanding how light shapes a subject, allows play within a range from subtle and natural, to striking and dramatic, while still maintaining realism.

Retouching is about finishing an image to fulfill a specific creative vision. That can mean many different things. Maybe bringing out the best light, personality and character in people.

Maybe idealizing an image by calling attention to good features and minimizing anything potentially unflattering. Or highlighting what’s raw, real and exposed.

Maybe it's enhancing an image to amplify details, style and attitude. Or keeping it completely natural.

Whatever the creative vision, it’s all about getting the most out of an image. It’s also about being easy to work with and having a completely collaborative attitude to fulfill the vision.

If you need a retoucher, don't hesitate to contact me with the details. I'm very down-to-earth and friendly, so let's discuss it! You can send me a message here, or email me at:
