The boroughs are a little cheaper, but not w/out character.

Re: Two Retouching jobs in NYC

Here in London experienced retouchers expect to get anything from 35 to 60k, depending on the type of work you can do. This is effectively 100k in $ - I've heard rumours of a few at the top end getting more than 100k ($202,850 a year). Just about makes it possible to live in this city

Re: Two Retouching jobs in NYC

Hi Mark am from London to the house price are a joke here! Think it's now the most expensive city in the world, New Yorks no far behind tho.

Do you work for Happy Finish? I've seen those guys before sounds like a great setup. I think they are all freelance. Freelancers seem to earn more

Re: Two Retouching jobs in NYC

actually a city in germany was named the priciest city this year, i can't remember where, but they were comparing apmt rentals to manhantan's...and if i remember correctly the average 2 bedroom was about 4k/month.

i live in bk, and dont mind it at all, i actually like getting out of the city after work!

but i guess since i was born and raised in bk, it's the only thing i really know. except for a quick stint in queens and that will never happen again!!

Re: Two Retouching jobs in NYC

After I build up my portfolio I am thinking of moving to new york city, so many more job opportunities...but I will be in such a culture shock. Where I live in now is in the middle of two cornfields but is like 10 min. from the city, fairly small one at that. I always thought Cleveland was busy and congested lol

If you're a freelancer, you spend way too much on space. Talk to your accountant. You are a small business, after all.

Re: Two Retouching jobs in NYC

Yes its all going freelance here these days. Places like Shoemakers and Happy are forming replacing the big retouching houses like Metro (which at one point dominated, in their heyday taking £300 an hour for...to be frank sometimes quite basic retouching). I think its better because its more about talent and skill now hopefully.
