Some forms of art are uncertain. In Drawing and Painting, you can be the best artist in the world, yet there is still a huge change that whatever you create can turn out to be... not so good. Photoshop is different. When you begin with a beautiful picture, no matter what you do, you end with a beautiful picture. This is why I chose to become a Photo-retoucher. I am a firm believer that anyone can photoshop, however, not everyone can photoshop well. It takes an eye for color, contrast and textures as well as limitless patience. Photo-Editing is probably the thing In life where I am most patient.

IMPORTANT: My gallery here is limited because this website only allows you to upload extremely low resolution images and most of the images I work with are 300-400 DPI.
My website www.ThePhotoVision.com
is currently under construction, but feel free to navigate to it too see the layout design which shows some of my graphic design work.
Note: Keep in mind I am a high-end retoucher and prefer to work on less than 5 images per contract.
