About Me

"...whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." - 1 Corinthians 10:31

Thanks for visiting my profile.

If you ever need any retouching done, please, send a photo to me and I'll take a look at it! Message me for details! I never use blur. That stuff is for beginners and, let's face it, it makes your photos look like crap from the 90's.

I have been working in Photoshop for over 5 years and absolutely love it. I am passionate about photography and retouching and spend most of my time bettering myself at it. I hope to better my own technical skill while helping others on this site.

Allow me to explain my pricing a little bit:

I charge $10 an hour. This, to me, is a fair pricing because each image needs a unique touch, so to charge a flat rate when some images needs less or more work just isn't fair to myself or you. The layout below is a rough guide to each images needs and the cost reflected in them. Not every image will take a full hour to retouch. Some take less, and some take more. So charging per hour keeps your cost down and reflects a fair way for us to interact.

Basic Retouch: $5. What is included in this is blemish removals (acne, moles, scars, scabs, etc.) changing exposure, enhancing contrast, and color correction. After that, I usually sharpen the image a little. Usually this is reserved best for headshots, senior photos, etc. This look is quick and keeps the image more natural.

High End Retouching: $10. For this, I do all of the previous enhancements listed with a few extra. I contour the body (using the liqufiy tool) to smooth out bumps, enhance the figure, etc. I also spend more time on dodging and burning with the skin to enhance that. Usually this is Reserved more for fashion images, commercial images, things like that.

Background replacement: $15. I do all of the previous Retouches mentioned along with cutting the model out of the background. Then I place the Model onto another background, manipulate the color to ensure everything fits, manipulate to exposure and sharpness to ensure that, etc.

Manipulations: $30-$45. Manipulations, to me, are any images that require background removal and heavy amounts of photoshop compositing and manipulation. Again, this package also includes high end retouching and can be catered to the style you desire.

What I offer is a higher quality for a lower price. It saddens me to look through profiles and see before/afters that don't show a huge difference. If you are sending your beloved images to a retoucher, you deserve the best quality you can get. Not some simple contrast/brightness adjustment. Send your photos to me and I will not only adjust contrast/brightness, but also clean the skin, smooth the skin, enhance the contrast on the skin, correct the color, enhance the eyes and hair, contour the body, and whatever else you may request. Don't settle for less! I offer a lower price because I love what I do. I enjoy working with you and I hope you will feel the same after!

God bless!
