Any links To See B4/After Of Pascal's Work?

I read the recent article in The New Yorker about our friend master retoucher Pascal at Box Studios NYC. There doesn't seem to be any of his work, especially any before/after work he's done. He has explained that he is of the secret "dark arts" (black ops) as he puts it. His clients don't want any revelations of what might have been retouched in their images. So it seems anyway. His site doesn't show us much.

I am curious if there is any work we could examine that Pascal has done himself, or is he like the great OZ, not letting anyone see behind the curtain.

If you have any links to any of Pascal's work, please hook us in

Thanx steve

Re: Any links To See B4/After Of Pascal's Work?

i believe there is none. a big successful studio like that doesn't need to show the work. most of us (in some way) have to show "before/after" for prospective clients otherwise no one will hire us

some said box studio responsible for annie leibovitz celebrity disney dream photos (http://thedisneyblog.com/2008/01/24/more-annie-leib). if that's the case, there are lots of mistakes (perspective, atmospheric perspective, depth of field etc.) i am seeing...

I actually found one at some point, let me see if I can't find it again. It was of a light haired woman laying sideways, if I remember with her back to the camera. Crunching a deadline right now , so give me a little bit.

Was the work considered to be extraordinary, or is it just like any of those before and after pictures from these NY studios?

anyone could have done it if I hadn't known it was him. I'm not saying he isn't the man, but that sample wasn't special.

I wonder if he used other parts from the shoot (specially the face) to manipulate the picture, or he just used his retouching skills.

Here is a closer look to the picture:

Before:

After:
http://i.models.com/feed/uploads/105...7_orig_pd1.jpg

He did make her butt look a little bit flat, but that how it was in the original picture anyway.

her butt does look flat. i think it's the lighting. he should have added more shadows and highlights to make it appear a little rounder.
