About me

Got a photo that needs to be brighter in one part, but not in another? Need to be separated from the background in one of your favorite shots? Need to remove a few spots or some wild hair? Got a bulge in the wrong place? How about a thick arm or shoulder? I can probably fix it. (and yes, of course I can fix blemishes)

I'm no Pascal Dangin, but then neither is anyone else on MM. I can probably help improve your images, and I offer a very good value. Try me. You'll see.


I can probably edit your photos in half the time you can, and the finished product will most likely be better. (For those of you who are good with retouching in Photoshop or GIMP that statement obviously doesn't apply to you!) Why not pay a little to save a lot? (a lot of time and frustration) . . . and when your photos are finished you'll have better photos to show people and book more paid work.

My rates are low (and negotiable). Why not give it a try, and see how much improvement you can have in your photos? Ask your photographer if you're worried they don't want you to edit your photos. Often photographers like to see what retouchers can do with their photos. Just make sure you let the photographer know that you're planning to add the retoucher's name in the credits section below the photo. They like that you do this, because often photographers don't want people to get a misconception that they do work any way except for the way they deliver their photos.

Below is my price list with "package" and "a-la-cart" pricing. It is there to make things simple and easy to understand, but if it is confusing, or if you have questions, please feel free to call me at any time to discuss my pricing, services, or any other details: 305-791-3551

To send me images for discussion or to receive a quote just e-mail them or a link to where they are available for me to download them. Use this e-mail address: photofixer@sbkart.com

Please ask for work you don't see on the menu. As an expert image chef, I can cook up almost anything!


Just call 305-791-3551.

I take payment in the form of cash, prepaid credit cards, high speed memory cards (Micro-SD Class 10 or CF 400x or faster only), small external USB 2 or USB 3 hard drives of 500 GB or greater capacity (Western Digital or Toshiba only - Western Digital My Passport for Mac preferred), lenses in Sony, Nikon, or Sigma mount, old trunks and other "props" for photo shoots, interesting hats, cool shoes, sexy swimwear, lacy lingerie, Chinese fans or parasols/umbrellas, interesting canes, costumes and period garments, such as Victorian era dresses, etc. Please call me at 305-791-3551 to discuss items you might have to trade for my services, or if you would prefer to buy something for me, rather than take the risk that cash or a prepaid credit card might get "lost" in the mail. Sometimes buying stuff for me as payment is a much better way to go, because you can get special deals on things or you have lots of "points" with which you can buy specific items that I value more than you do. Generally I use NewEgg.com and BandHphotovideo.com to determine the value of an item, because those are the sites from which I do most of my electronic purchasing. For items like shoes and "props" for photo shoots, we will have to discuss their value. It is difficult to determine the value of some items. I like to use KEH.com, AllOfCraigs.com, and eBay.com to determine values for items that are used.

Again, please call to discuss alternative forms of payment for my services . . . 305-791-3551

Why don't I take PayPal? That's a long story, but let's just say I'm unhappy with them and the banking industry in general. Checks suck. Credit is unreliable. Cash is king.

I have been specializing in "realistic edits" over the past few years, because I have wanted my photos to look untouched and "totally real" . . . something many photo retouchers don't seem to do.

Magazine layouts, Yellow Pages advertisements, and brochure designs published. I've designed lot of fliers too. I'm not bad with comp. cards either. Let's make your comp card sizzle!

I was a free-lance Web designer for a few years, which is where I learned most of my Photoshop skills (resizing, compression, using layers, adjusting exposure, contrast, color, sharpness, typesetting, drawing, erasing, selecting, warping, rotation, feathering, etc.), before I started to get into heavy retouching and image manipulation for advertising. Now, since I'm a photographer too, I do the majority of my own photo fixes and manipulation.
