I currently charge per the hour for my services, depending on the type of retouch/manip. work is desired. I carry all transactions through Paypal, as it is the most convenient - let me know in advance if you must work through other means.
I aim first and foremost to present quality. I avoid the "plastic skin" look, and spend a Lot of time on my work to maintain the human qualities that are just so very beautiful. I do what I can to slim down, remove blemishes, relight, adjust tones, clean up discoloration in skin, remove (requested) scars, and overall just clean up that extra little bit that the camera may have caught by accident. My sole aim, however, is to retain the Truth in the beauty of the model or the scene by merely fleshing out those qualities and subduing the others.
Then other times, I just like to have fun and run free with the digi-pen and overactive imagination
I Will Not
work with photos of which the true copyright owner (usually the photog) has not permitted retouching. It's a matter of respect and love of craft as much as it is of legal substance. I also request that the images are of decent quality and high enough resolution for me to enjoy the pixels.
Thanks and Profound Peace to you and your's!
