        It depends on how good you are. think of it this way, if you are a chef that cant cook worth a darn, then you will be working at mcdonalds for the rest of your life, and they probably wont even let you cook there. So if you are a crappy retoucher, then be happy with min wage, if your good, you can ask for what you want to get paid, just like me. lol

                    I work as a digital retoucher in Toronto for one of the largest prepress shops/ photo studios in Canada. There is lots of work here in Toronto, you just have to look for it. And we do most of our work for clients in the USA.

                      Well seeing as this is my maiden post to Retouchpro I thought I'd start in the Canadian Blog.

                      Hello fellow Canadian Retouchers. I guess you can add me to the small group here. I work in Toronto as a Retoucher. I do work for some of the Ad Agencies in town here.

                      What Prepress shop do you work at Heretic if you don't mind me asking? Zganie, where are you located? Is everyone keeping busy?

                        I frequently do retouching work for a Photostudio in Montreal.
                        Belgium is about 8000 km from Montreal, so if I can find it from here, you sure can find it from where you live. It might be your neighbour!

                          Sorry I realize this thread is probably long gone by now, but I thought I would add my two cents. I do all the restoration and alteration for Black's web restoration service, and I don't even live in Toronto! Like other threads say, It's just a matter of having the right skills, jumping at the right opportunity, making sure you have the best quality possible, and the best work ethic because people will always return to people who are consistent. (In quality and work ethic obviously)

                                Reps that lack a category for retouchers
                                by Solstice
                                I've noticed that reps don't represent retouchers. I should clarify, I have seen one that does, out of so many that don't include a category for retouchers. Why is that?

                                The categories I've seen are as follows:

                                Retouchers specialized in hotels/interior?
                                by abdul10000
                                Are there any retouchers specialized in hotels/interior out there? By that I mean retouchers who can take raw pictures and turn them into final pictures up to international standards. It seems I am never able to find people specialized, just many retouchers with few interior samples in their portfolio....

                                Hi everybody... I've been looking for work, and I tried using Monster and Career Builder... when you type in the word retoucher, you get nothing... Which leads me to believe that nowadays they are calling retouchers something else which I'm not aware of...

                                Does anyone work for a retouching house? If so, how much do you make? I know it varies, I just would like YOUR feedback. I know in my region freelancers and houses range from 150-250/hr, but I'd like to know what the people within the houses make. Also, if you're a freelance, what do YOU typically charge...
