Nope, that's not how things work in the real world. Especially today. No way a retoucher is in on some sort of percentage. Hell, 95% of the time the retoucher gets no credit at all. You know, here's a photo by Annie Lebowitz. Yeah, it does look heavily retouched, doesn't it? Who did the retouching? Beats me. Annie's a great photograher, though, isn't she?
Just expect a nice little flat or hourly rate and a pat on the butt.

AFrazier,

You need to stop replying to threads and spreading your misinformation and general bullshit. Worse is when you post an example. stop.

Generally no credit. The world hasn't woken up yet to exactly how much is now done. There would be some damn rich retouchers out there with a percentage

"there is a contract involved for each photographer ..."

I wasn't talking about retouching anymore. Someone said I was mistaken. I said okay.

There are copyrights on photographs for photographers.

Completely unnecessary. I haven't argued the point. I was mistaken. I said so. I merely explained why I thought it might be that way and reiterated that I was mistaken. There was no call for you to speak to me that way.

BUT ... I've never actually tried to work for another company before. I do retouching privately through my own business (If Only Photos), and I've never researched the law concerning copyright issues on the subject. Perhaps I should.
I quoted the wrong part.

Again, I was explaining why I posted what I did, and emphasized that I've never researched it, and that it was an assumption on my part that it might work similar to other industries. I didn't just shoot someone's dog here. This is a web forum. Lighten up.

Re: Photo Retoucher Rates!?

One (maybe more) posters on this thread got bent out of shape because I posted bad information because I, admittedly, didn't really know what I was talking about.
But I said as much, as I recall. Apologies were made. All was well. Then posts went on criticizing the original post as though the issue had never been resolved.
So I am trying to clear up the confusion. I don't much care for ugly comments. People make mistakes.
