*** I'm looking for new photographer clients as well as models to shoot for my portfolio. ***
Need retouching? It's PFM.
I am not a retoucher as much as I am a photographic digital artist. Whether its taking the photos or doing something creative with photos, my goal is imagery that is meaningful and pleasing to look at. It is not often that an image is perfect right off the camera, and most people have cameras anyway, which essentially makes everyone a photographer to some degree. However, being a photographic artist requires doing something the average Joe with an iPhone can't do.
For photographers, though I understand your desire to do your own editing, I can alleviate hours of your time by doing your editing work for you. This time can be spent doing anything from being with family to doing more shooting. I can learn your style, and even use your actions only on your photos. At an average of $2/shot for most edits, it's worth letting me take over this part of the artistic process. You can also just have me do the basic editing, and you can still do all the fun artistic stuff.
Besides basic editing, I also do background changes, head swaps, RAW conversions, fantasy editing, fixing backdrops, tattoo removal/enhancing, braces removals, and I'm always willing to tackle something I've never done before. So hit me with your worst shot.
For those models in the Spokane area, we can get together any time of the year for trade on location photography. I can get whatever shots you need and can give you creative shots that most photographers won't give you. You are also encouraged to bring whoever you want with you and I will never try to get you to do anything you are not completely comfortable with.
For models anywhere, I have an open casting call of sorts for TFI photos. Have a friend who is not a photographer snap some shots of you with any image capturing device that creates pics that are 5MP or better. Take 1-10 shots, any genre, plain background, and pose, then send the pics to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do something creative with the shots, you can also give ideas if you want, and I will send at least one of the shots back. Make sure no one is going to have issues with copyrights if I altar the images and make them my own. I believe a photograph is art, which does not happen when someone pushes a button. Anyone can do that. Distance photography is a new Idea that I want to try, and see what happens.
In addition to Photoshop, I use Lightroom, Portraiture, and various Topaz plugins to accomplish my artistic magic. Files are generally transferred through Dropbox and payments are through Paypal to make the process quick and easy. I will always do a few test shots for free as well. Models, all copyrighted photos I edit must have written permission from the photographer to edit his/her work.
