I have over 14 years of experience working with photoshop. I spent my first 8 years in an advertising agency as a graphic designer/production artist. The last 5.5+ years as an art director with one of the worlds largest footwear companies (wolverine world wide). As much as I love my day job, I still very much enjoy retouching photos in my free time.
My current rate is $35 per hour. However I will offer a discount of $25 per hour if I can use the before and after photos in my portfolio. If you are a photographer who I feel has a great portfolio and who's looking to build a relationship with a retoucher, I might be willing to do a test image for you. Feel free to send me a message. Please note, I do not give away work for free so I will watermark/resize the test image.
