It's unfortunate that u reaped the ugly end of ur comments, hopefully u will b a little more careful about what u spew in here. We twist images not so much facts, well knowingly anywayz.

$125 per hour for freelance agency work in Orlando. That's the low end. The agency charges the client $185-200.

Fun, somewhat volatile thread.

Cheers,

bp

wow, i thought this was about "rates". anyhoo...I've seen freelance rates range low as $20 per hour to $120 per hour. This mostly depends on retoucher experience and client demand. Some photographers are going with their printing labs which are something like $8 per facial retouch head. sheez! I've even heard rumor of new software that automatically does facial retouch - not too accurate - but labs like Miller's Imaging only charging $3 per image. whats a freelancer to do ?

Re: Photo Retoucher Rates!?

I'd never trust a program that does automatic fixing.

$3 a retouch..I mean how much work would a lab really put in an image for that amount, that's not trusting either.


It seems more high end and high demand retouchers are the ones that make it in this dark world...lol

There is no other market in this day and age. Everyone has a computer, a digital camera and photoshop. It's only those that have the finest skills that are going to get paid, now and in the future.

Re: Photo Retoucher Rates!?

I know for sure that there will always be people asking for to much money than they deserve.But who decides what deserves each.I am one of the best photographers in Romania.I am not making more than 30-35 K a year.For me (learning 15 years and spending more than 100k for equipment ) watching you talking about 80k beeing not so much.WAKE UP people.There are many much more dificult jobs than retouching and earning much less.I see that everyone compares with New York, Los Angeles, London,,,,what about rest of the world??? I need also a retoucher but i live in Bucharest.That means i'm already dead???????
