Location images from my portfolio

A photograph is a moment frozen in time, forever.  It allows the viewer to study every aspect of it.  For that reason, every photograph you see in every magazine and advertisement has had some work done.

The photo packages I offer include simple retouching on a select number of images.  If you would like more images retouched or have images of your own that you want to have printed and need them cleaned up, then retouching is the way to go.

Retouched images are Photoshopped, ready to print or post on-line with a fine tuned contrast, color, and softened blemishes. The retouching is subtle but makes a big difference.  Most simple retouches can be done in about a half hour while fixing more extensive issues will take quite a bit longer.

Retouching rate is $80 per hour (billed on the half hour)
