Hello, I am a photo retoucher (if it isn't obvious by now).
I am also a photographer:
I believe in the democratization of education. When I first began retouching, YouTube did not exist. Now that it does, I've seen a lot of tutorials, all scattered around, and most of them are not precise, progressive, or very informative. The only great resources for learning photoshop are not free. Enters No Pixels Harmed.
No Pixels Harmed is the name of my YouTube shows aimed at teaching photographers the craft of retouching, without hurting innocent pixels in the process.
My goal is to leave this world a more creative place, while Photoshop is just one of the barriers photographers have to cross. I hope I can pour some asphalt in your road.
For commissioned work, feel free to contact me for rates.
I do very selective TFP. With the purpose of Photoshop Video tutorials in mind, these are my guidelines/considerations for TFP:
- I am interested in images that present a problem that would be useful to teach in the show
-I need written permission from the copyright owner (usually the photographer) to use them in the show. That normally includes a display of the "raw" image, before any alterations.
-Images have to be PG-13
-I cannot guarantee that the images will be used on the show at all (if you are looking at it as a way to get exposure)
-If I use the image I will credit the Copyright Owner in the video description (unless he/she wants to remain anonymous)
-The Copyright Owner keeps all original copyright, I only want permission to use it.
Otherwise, my rates are fairly reasonable and I do offer bulk discount.
