About MeAbout Me -
I work freelance as a retoucher, before which I worked for The Shoemakers Elves retouching company in Old Street, London. I have a Degree in Fine Art & History of Art from Goldsmiths University London, an A level in Photography as well as a & City & Guilds, a passion for the arts and fashion and experience in fashion design - I make steel boned corsets. So I'm eclectic in my interests but predominantly an artist drawn to create beautiful things and get involved in exciting projects.
I previously worked as a high-end fashion retoucher on fashion, advertising and editorial images that have appeared in Harpers, Elle, Vogue etc - see the tear sheets in my portfolio for a few of my published images.
What I Currently Do -
I currently work as Arts Editor for Candid Magazine - http://CandidOnline.com as well as shooting fashion editorial and photo journalism. I'm still available freelance as a retoucher (see below) for paying clients if my schedule permits. I also run my own little side business centred around my passion for corset making.
I'm available to freelance remotely or in person at a location in/around London at a rate of £20 per hr or £250 per image for a high-end fashion retouch - obviously this is generic and price will depend on the images and what you want done. Email me with images and project details/level of retouching required for a print by print quote.
I am extremely hard working and professional and have a knack for delivering the clients desired result even if they're unsure what they want or how to explain the brief fully.
As well as paid work I'm also open to collaborations on very select (1or 2 a year) artistic projects: -
* It has to take my breath away/be something too exciting to turn down working on
* You're planning something crazy/exotic that's different to what anyone else has done
* If you're a corsetry/lingerie photographer with a good portfolio and would like to photograph my corsetry I will retouch all photos free - Clothing designer MM profile for my corsetry portfolio - http://www.modelmayhem.com/ScarlettCorsets
CreditsI have worked on images for New Look, Reebok, Italian GQ, Easy Living, Harpers Bazaar, Kurt Geiger, Net-A-Porter, Lindex, the British Hair Awards, Candid Magazine and IO Donna amongst others.
