You’ve asked for it and we’ve listened! Breed is expanding in so many great ways, it’s been amazing to watch the company grow and expand based on your requests. We now offer retouching services to our members. If you’ve been following me for a minute, you probably know that I have never learned how to retouch. There are several reasons for this but the biggest one is that I don’t want to spend hours at a computer retouching my work. Although I want to have control over the final image, I have chosen to opt out of learning Adobe Photoshop and assign my work to a retoucher I really trust. So far, it’s worked well for me. I have worked with a lot of retouchers and I have a large pool of resources to choose from so I thought I’d share some of my talented retouchers with my Breed members and offer their services to you!
PROFESSIONAL RETOUCHING: Here’s how it works: Send us your proposal and images to email@example.com We will review your images and what you’d like to have done to them and we will send you back a quote. (pricing ranges $50-100 per image) If you agree to our price, you will upload your raws and your payment and we will get the images back to you within a week. You get 1 revision at not cost from the first round. Any changes or fixes you need will be completed and sent back to you finished. If you need extra work on the images, we will charge a small revision fee.
We have several retouchers on the team. Our lead retoucher is one of my trusted retouchers, Richard Ray Ruiz, has been retouching my work for over 10 years. He has worked on campaigns like Nike and Elyse Walker, just to name a few. He also is our creative director at Breed Magazine & Alice Magazine! He’s a jack of all trades, master of Adobe Creative Suite.
PRIVATE RETOUCHING CLASSES: You’ve asked for it and we are now offering other great news is that Richard now offers private, one-on-one retouching workshops in NYC. You can meet with Richard and spend the day with him while he teaches you how to properly dodge and burn and a ton of other shortcuts to bring your skill set up to pro level. So if you still want to retouch your own work and not assign it to a pro, learn from the best. Email us to sign up for a private workshop.
