newbie advise

Hi Everyone,

I'm a graphic artist with about 15 years of experience doing motion graphics and VFX in the film and TV industry, and I'd like to get into photo retouching. I'm looking for work that I can do from home and I love Photoshop work. I've done retouching in my jobs, but have never formally marketed myself as a retoucher and don't know exactly how to start. What types of rates to people charge? How do you all approach clients? Any helpful info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Re: newbie advise

hi! you need to produce some kind of online portfolio first then you can consider rates, clients etc.
also, there is a very good forum here with posts from one of the patrons about 'dos' and 'don't' for presenting your work and marketing yourself as a retoucher (can't find the link)
