Online retouching tutuoring.

Online tutoring...

I have been asked by a few people if I could do this. I have always declined.

But lately I have been wondering if this would work.

I guess my question is, how would this work? Anyone have ideas?

It should not be a problem in this day of video conferencing, and on line communication.

Any suggestions would be cool.

As a side note, I have been retouching to all the large agencies, and well known photographers since the early 70's. I teach people how to retouch the correct way. Not how to use photoshop.

Look forward to your suggestions.

Jeff

Re: Online retouching tutuoring.

I think this can be worked out. I will build a website in the next few weeks.


And add conferencing, lessons and such.

I will also work out pricing structures.

Thank you for input. I would like to see more.

Re: Online retouching tutuoring.

The market for beauty and fashion retouching tutoring becomes a little saturated, so it seems. It would be great if you could enlighten us on product (hard surface) retouching. Automotive retouching would be even more interesting to me, but that is very tricky and specific.

Re: Online retouching tutuoring.

I have been retouching autos since the 1970's. And still work with Ford, Jeep, Chrysler, BMW and Bentley.

I also do a ton of product retouching.

There will be group tutorials as well as one on one.

And you are right. Beauty and fashion is covered, But in my opinion, not very well!
I am talking high end here, the top publications, including covers.

It will take a while, I expect to have it up and running by the new year. But first I need to set up a dedicated forum. That will find out needs of you (the client).

It will also have dates and costings, as well as levels.

Looking forward to it.

Jeff

Re: Online retouching tutuoring.

That sounds very interesting, I'm sure you are able to add something worthwhile to this market!

If I could be of any use to you (I'm a web developer eager to learn the ins and outs of retouching) just let me know.

Re: Online retouching tutuoring.

I would be interested, particularly on the product/auto side of it and any advanced color techniques. However if the price for tutorials are high, I will be less inclined... so perhaps the group tutorial is a good idea.

Re: Online retouching tutuoring.

I have not worked out costings yet. But there will be a "one to one" option, a "group option" and a "open class option".

I would definitely be interested. I've paid $60 an hour at one point to fix all my bad habits. I still have a long way to go. Part of it is my patience. Wanting to be one the best so fast. Anyway count me in. You can see about where I am here www.modelmayhem.com/Faze1
