Retouching

 

With 5 years of digital retouching experience in portraiture, still life, and composite images, I have retouched high end retail brands such as Prada, Tom Ford, Gucci, Balenciaga, Louis Vuitton, and more under Holt Renfrew. My work has also been published in Maclean's magazine, Féroce magazine, and Elléments magazine, and there are many freelance photographers who use my services to bring their images to the next level.

Having obtained a diploma in Photography from Algonquin College in Ottawa, Canada, I have on-set experience, professional printing knowledge, and I am a photographer myself. I am also trained in Capture One Pro, and therefore able to handle the RAW files too.

I can work remotely or travel within the GTA as an on-site Retoucher or Digital Technician for your photoshoot.
