About Me

You need distinctive Professional Retouching.
You need exceptional results and flawless images.
You need someone who has the background and skill to deliver.
You need me.

My name is John Ross, and I specialize in high-end Portrait and Lifestyle Retouching. For more than 20 years I’ve been working in the printing, photography, retouching, marketing, and graphic design fields. In that time, I’ve partnered with top agencies such as Arnold, Alcone, and BBDO, as well as corporations such as Bose, Snuggle and Volkswagon.

My clients trust me to deliver finished products that far exceed expectations, allowing my work to grace the covers of Advanced Photoshop, Connecticut Bride, RoadBike, Bowdoin and Yale Alumni Magazines.

Most recently my work has been featured with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), Advanced Photoshop, Photoshop Creative, and Digital Photographer magazines. I have also written for Retouching Academy, and do live training for RetouchPro, Hartford Adobe, as well as my own studio.

At the Art of Retouching Studio, my size and talent allows me to provide each of my clients with the highest levels of quality and satisfaction. Whether your work requires a delicate revision, press-ready color correction, or complex retouching, I have a solution.

"John was an incredible person to work with. He gave great feedback and advice over the course of the shoot, and he really helped me understand photos from the photographer and retoucher's points of view. He was very professional throughout the shoot and made me feel very comfo...rtable. I truly hope to work with him again soon." more less
