    Re: Freelance rates.

    Freelance rates for onsite within an ad agency, I'd say 800 euros a day, but don't know if you want to adjust that for dollars, so around 1000 US.

    If you want a yearly rate, you obivously go discounted. So Be nice and end up around 120.000.

    Also if you ever need some remote retouching, let me know

    80 is good for senior fashion/portrait retoucher. Not so sure that is adequate in advertising world, as it involves much broader skill set.

    Thanks Greg,
    $80K a year is far too low for me.... They are giving me more than that at the moment, I need to push for more, if they want me here that much.

    for straight up Senior Retouching I know that some of the Big Agencies pay 80k and up a year for full time.

    When I said large, I meant one of the leading worldwide agencies. I knocked 3D on the head years ago....

    Maybe it's more about what kind of clients they're dealing with. Them being large, doesn't mean that pay per project is the best, as large means more people. For advertising work with 3D involved at a senior level at least 120 a year, but that can be much less for an employee.

    that is a tough question to answer Jeff. They vary from place to place and I think it depends on if they "like" you. Let me ask around.

    started a topic Freelance rates.

    Freelance rates.

    Hey Guys, not posted for ages now..

    Quick question, aimed at senior creative retouchers regarding freelance rates for "on site" clients.

    My work comes in from all over the world.. So much so, that I now have 3 retouchers working on my overflow. Thanks to Retouch Pro, I found these 3 guys.

    A while ago I was offered a contract at a large ad agency in Toronto... I took it on thinking they would need me 1 or 2 days a week. Huh!! They want me every day! That is fine, Been here for two years now. It has been tight time wise, what with all my other clients, but so far, so good.

    Problem is, I think I may be underselling myself at the agency. Third year contract will be offered to me next month, so have to review my rates. Anyone know what the going rate is at hi end agency for on site retouching? Thanks

    I have a few questions for myself, and fellow retoucher friends, that we've had trouble finding answers on. Retouchpro.com seems like the place to go for discussion.

    What would be a reasonable price range for a professionally inexperienced retoucher to charge for NYC freelance projects in which the images are used for photographer portfolios, web, or exhibition prints? Is it best to charge per project or per image?

Retouchers offer basic rates when it comes to images used for portfolio only..but once it gets into Advertisement/Publishing it's a different story with their rates and much higher. So for Advertisement, Editorial, and etc. what should the Retouchers rates...

    Hi everyone,


    I figured to sign up on this website after I made another post (on a different web source) that didn't receive much feedback on and hoping to get great advice here. I'm pasting my post below.
