I graduated from a Professional Photography program but spent the las 12 years as an Art Director working in Advertising agencies and design studios. Doing retouching and heavy compositing back when working a photoshop document in CMYK was plain crazy is actually what allowed me to migrate to the agency world. It is quite unsusual for an Art Director but I've been doing my own photoshop all along. I am now operating as a freelancer and am offering my services for projetcs ranging from basic retouching to heavy compositing or all out photo-illustration.
Having worked at pretty much every step of the creative process, I can confidently promise an efficient workflow, a professional attitude and kick-ass results. Untill this profile is up to date, you can PM me for rates or other pertinent details.
Being new here, and lacking recent work in the fashion industry, I'll be open to projects on a TF basis. My retouching portfolio does'nt reflect all my actual imaging capabilities but you can get a look at my Art Director's book at http://pinterest.com/lebeaujonathan/ . That will give you an idea of my standards.
Even though my book is in dire need of new work, I'm being very selective about projects I invest time in. But if you've got outstanding work and are looking for a collaboration, here's what I'm looking for as far as TF is concerned.
#1 - A top notch photographer producing high quality work with a kick ass team who needs straightforward retouching or heavy manipulation.
#2 - A special project that's more conceptual or needs heavy manipulation or compositing.
In any case, just hit me and we'll see if we can make magic.
