Found this place quite by accident. Well I believe good things sometimes happen by accident so maybe this one. I really would rather be working then socializing but this seems like a good way to network with other retouchers and do a bit of give and take. I have been in the professional photography business here in NY for about 35 years. 20 of which I either owned or managed Pro Color Labs...the old way with chemicals and darkrooms. The last 18 or so years I've been doing much of the same work digitally. Re-educated back in the early to mid eighties by Apple and Kodak at a little known joint effort established by those founders in Maine called The Center for Creative Imaging, I entered the photography's new digital world. My work has been published and credited in coffee table books, shown in museums and galleries and been the cover and story work in numerious magazines. A lot of my work is subject to live copyrights and personal agreements with the subjects and cannot be published. This includes forums public or private that could be seen as a breech of copyright.
So with that said...I look forward to an experience.
