The art of retouching involves manipulating attributes of individual pixels in a manner that is both professionally acceptable and visually pleasing, while also maintaining a believability that the subconscious mind will accept.  I strive to improve the image, without ruining the story.

My name is David and I'm a photo retouch artist.  I started out studying photography at The Art Institute of Houston in the early 80's.  I moved to Tulsa and began a career as a commercial photographer, but after I built my second darkroom I found that I liked the darkroom as much, if not more than being behind the camera.  Although I have remained an avid photographer, the computer age came along and my formal training was electronics, so it was a natural progression to get into computer IT and become a geek.

In 2006 I was in a serious car accident and had a long recovery (I made it back to 100% if you don't count the occasional vertigo).  Anyway, I decided I would change my focus and I began learning everything I could about Photoshop and Illustrator.  Just as I had taught myself photography a long time ago, I started teaching myself the art of retouching.  I'm obsessed now and I don't see any end in sight. 

I have great color perception and a wonderful attention to detail.  I see things most don't and my wife hates to shop for clothes without me, she says “because I'm so good with colors."  I say thanks 'hot rod' and spend the day with her anyway. I love her to death. ;o)  BTW, she's a great web designer.  Check her out at http://www.HoosierWebChic.com.

I really want to be a great success with my retouching.  I think it's always been in my blood to make things look as good as possible, some would call that a perfectionist trait.  Maybe so!

Feel free to contact me or send images you would like a quote on to David at PixelPurfect dot com and I'll get back to you. You must be the model and/or the copyright holder or have permission to request the retouch of the unedited image. I don't edit images that have already been retouched.
