Hi everyone,

Havent been on here for many years, but this is where it all started for me.

I have gone on to hone my skills to become a senior retoucher, working with some of the biggest and most renowned brands in the fashion industry such as Gucci, Burberry, Armani, and Nike.

Now, I am in a position where I would like to give back to the community that helped me start my journey and share my knowledge and expertise by creating a comprehensive masterclass course on retouching. I am eager to know what specific topics and areas of difficulty you would like to learn and need help with as I design the course.

Additionally, I am considering offering small group sessions over Zoom or a similar platform to provide a more interactive and personalized learning experience. I am open to any suggestions and welcome any ideas that would help make the course even more effective.

I am excited to share my wealth of knowledge and skills to help others excel in retouching and I look forward to hearing your feedback.

If you are curious to see my work (it's understandable from such bold claims!) here are a couple of links:

Many thanks

I would suggest dividing the course into sections, such as: beauty, product, and  commercial--where you dump everything that isn't beauty and products.

Start off with a client brief for each section. The student downloads the photo. Then follows the technique panel to achieve the goal.

Hope that helps you

Ok cool,

Good suggestions so far!

Would anyone be interested to attend a free 1 hour Q&A over zoom?

im based in London, so the time would be within GMT. But if a few people want to join, then we can see what works best for all the time zones!
