Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $13

For the past 6 years I've been focusing on processing and retouching photographs (Weddings, Portraits, Commercial & Travel). I have become very proficient in retouching, dropping backgrounds, layering effects, digital painting, HDR, and processing large numbers of files to meet deadlines. This just complements my 8 years of experience in doing Graphic Design, Logo Design, Typesetting, Publication Layouts, Photo Album Designs and 3D Illustration. I love creative challenges and making sure you have what you envision.
