Re: I know I should not complain.....

Well, yes I have been doing it a long time... Since 1972 in London. But only been here in Canada 2 years...

Do I get paid for it? Why would I do it if I did not get paid? Yes I get paid, and I am not cheap either.

Re: I know I should not complain.....

Hahaha. I am just trying to get into this work, but honestly I find pretty women with perfect hair/teeth/make-up soooo boring too! Honestly, I have passion as a painter, an artist and lover of fine art and photography. Retouching just seems to be a more interesting field for me to work in then my present graphic design so I am trying to get my foot in the door here. As far as retouch work I see that I really admire, I am much more interested in artistic retouching that I see on modern fine art photographs, especially of people with interesting features or still life done in very nuanced and painterly way... that is where the real artist's eye comes into play!

Cheers,
Amy

I am still airbrushing.. I love that too... But it does not pay the $125 an hour I get for my retouching.
