Listen, I .... just have to say this. If you're going to advertise yourself in the English speaking world, please work on your grammar and syntax.

And, why are you soliciting here? We're retouchers. We do it ourselves. Now, if you did tax prep, I'd be interested.......

Huh, 15-30$ in US? Photoshop~700, tablet~300, computer, monitor lets say~1500-3500$,
Color management~300, plus printer. We are looking at 2500-4500$ initial investment for work from home (not considering rent yet and education expense) now think how many images you can finish a day? I mean high quality job not quick fixes....

We know that high-quality job is not so quick...
We put own money to begin the business. You think the prices should be higher? The majority of photographers considers even these prices high.
P.S. And how much is Your price (if it isn't secret)?

Re: Photo Retoucher looking for a cooperation!

Hi Retouching,

As DiamondsDr47 points out, the English in you post is wanting. I'd clarify that by disclosing who and where you are so there is utter tranparency. For such a request to have a chance of working, the post needs to reassure the photographer or retoucher that you are honest, won't vanish or contact their clients directly. Cloaked as you are with a pseuodnym, I personally would never send off the results of my hard work for someone, somewhere over the internet to retouch for me. Either I'd do it myself or hire someone with a face, address and reputation.

The price is not the issue, it's the "glue" for a relationship that is missing and that is believability and trust! I'm new to this forum, but if I myself wanted to get people to use my services, I'd first contribute here and become known. Use your real name and show enough work and ability to work with others so that you will naturally get ranked as "a trustworthy person worth dealing with".

Good luck!

Asher

All this guy does is try to sell his really bad retouching services. Maybe if he asked for help and critiques, he may get better. Then maybe a photographer will use him. I feel sorry for any photographer that would let this guy edit there photos.

This is obviously an off-shore company/identity who thinks by soliciting here on the cheap they may acquire work. You can't blame them.
After all this is an international site.
I was put in my place here while complaining about the price of gas in the US by a person in the UK who was paying three times as much ( of course the currency exchange is 2 1/2 to 1 in their favor - hey I'm a retoucher not a math genius). I traveled to the UK in Dec O7 and while outraged at the price of gas - I had a fun time driving on the other side of the road.... Sorry I digress. Anyway the point being is that there are people from all over the world on this site and not only your work - but the ease of usage for the employer is the issue. Professional photographers don't have the time to deal with language barriers and time zone problems..... hey if you can't pick up the phone.....
Anyway sorry for rambling but I usually win the project based: 1. on my talent; 2. on my location or ease of use.
Bottom line: these people don't really affect most of our business.
Only my 2 cents.

Nancy,

A skilled retoucher with a phone that works will get work but not behond a curtain. My advice to him/her is to come out and get an identity or it's a waste of time.

Re: Photo Retoucher looking for a cooperation!

I still don't get why people advertise on this site to sell their retouching services. Now, a photographer coming here to find a retoucher makes sense, but not the other way around.

But I don't get a lot of things, either. Like, why in the world do people retouch little kids to look like dolls. But, hey, seems to be some sort of market for it.
