    Artistic Photo Retoucher Available For Work

    I have over 10 years experience with Photoshop and 5+ years experience in a commercial portrait studio.

    I've retouched fashion (look books, moods, product photos), portraits, animal portraits, weddings, enlargements and more.

    I am incredibly passionate about photo retouching and love doing all of the fine, finicky, detailed work that most others can't stand.
    I enjoy spending hours upon hours working on a singular project or photo. I like to turn already inspiring photography into an intricate work of art that catches the eye.

    I also offer a product photography and retouching service.

    I have a background in art so I am always interested in new ways to contribute to a project.

    Please contact me any time and I am happy to answer any questions.

About Jess

I am an artistic retoucher who is available for freelance retouching work.

My professional experience in the industry ranges from over 10 years with Adobe Photoshop and over 5 years in a commercial portrait studio. I've worked on fashion shoots, look books, wedding albums, enlargements, family portraits, maternity, high-end art photos, magazines, composites and more.

I enjoy doing all of the intricate, time consuming retouching that most photographers don't have the time to do and love all aspects of art photography as well as the basics such as colour correction.

I am also set up so I can upload/download work in bulk or use postal services.

Please take the time to view my portfolio. I would be happy to discuss any details with you.

Kind regards,

Jessica Stapleton
