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
