I am a Photographic Retouch Artist with an extensive background in the photographic industry, having begun my career in 1989 as a Photographic Lab Technician at PCL Imaging in Parnell, Auckland. In my early years I was involved in all aspects of photographic laboratory work – both analogue and digital before moving into Digital Imaging and Retouching where I truly found my calling.
Over the years I have earned a reputation for producing high quality work for any application, but in particular for the fashion industry. My lab experience means that I also understand how to prep and handle files correctly which has been invaluable when dealing with professional photographers or any part of the imaging industry.
I have worked closely with many clients over the years and I have unwavering commitment that the final outcome should always respect & preserve the character and style of the photographer’s art. I believe that it is my eye for detail and ability to achieve a far more natural result that enables me to achieve this and to therefore take on almost any project. On top of that I love what I do, I am down to earth and flexible, and have an extremely high work ethic.
I am available as a Freelance Retouch Artist based in Northcote Point, Auckland.
