Becoming a high end Retoucher

*Der Kampf, *Graphic Design, *Personal

Like many others, I sort of fell into retouching, and I didn’t initially have had planned to become a high end retoucher (I like that name like fine art pro photographer XD) for some of the photographers around.

Working on Retouching jobs didn’t come overnight. I started with photographers who were just starting out like me. Slowly, I started working with Pro photographers as an assistant of course. Then I started getting more retouching work from more photographers and finally it kept on growing from there.

The most important aspect was word of mouth. Doing each job well and making sure your clients are happy will be the best form of advertising ever.

However, despite my initial transition from assistant to retoucher it was my last job as teacher in retouching workshops where I taught the art and techniques used by some of the biggest names in the retouching world where I realized that I could actually become a retoucher and make a living out of it.

Actually after approximate seven months of nonstop work I might have found that niche that I was looking for.

  1. Das freut mich für Dich, Alberto.
    Es ist bestimmt ein hartes Brot, aber wenn es dich erfüllt und du zufrieden bist, ist alles gut. Solch Wissen kann man als Fotograf so nebenbei ja auch ganz gut brauchen ;-)
    Alles Gute
