Looking to build a portfolio

Hi Everyone,

I've recently finished a photography degree and decided that I prefer working with photoshop than actually taking photos. Over the last couple of months I've done some work experience in the field of retouching and really enjoyed it so would like to start to build up a portfolio so that I can begin to look for work in the field. I currently have no examples of retouching to show my skill level, however I do have two self portraits on my website that I digitally painted for my degree show (from scratch) to show my photoshop abilities. (this is a time lapse of how the painting was made for those of you wondering)

I am specifically looking for high res, high end fashion images that I could retouch in exchange to be able to use in my portfolio. Please contact me at if you'd be willing to help me out.

Kind regards,
