  • Retouching Rates; covers & per-image

    Hi Guys, What are the going rate-ranges for retouching for these items listed below. I’m a Senior Retoucher (in-house and recently gone solo), have worked the covers of many major top-shelf magazines, my skill level is at the master level and rates should reflect this. Below was an email inquiry excerpt from a prospective client. Im assuming they are asking this as there are set rate-ranges for these items specifically within editorial work. -T.I.A.

    How much do you charge:
    -for cover?
    -per image?

    Dear All,

    I am trying to see if I can afford to get a retoucher on my team. I am a photographer, who has been retouching her own work up until now. Well, it is not what I like to do....I am paranoidal and obsessed about retouching, and mess with it way too much...Then I get my models...
