  • New to the board, but not to the business

    Been lurking around here for a month or two, and finally decided to post a "hello." I've been in the graphics industry for 20 years, and spent the last 12 or so as a professional photo retoucher. My website:

    I notice a wide range of skill levels here, and it's nice to see those with higher skills helping others. I've always enjoyed giving Photoshop advice. However, I've had it backfire when clients with some Photoshop knowledge have picked my brain for techniques, then never called me again. Occupational hazard, I suppose.

    Anyway, I'm sure I'll be throwing in my 2 cents here and there.

      Welcome to the sight. Yes, it is a good bunch here and the advise is almost always good and professional. I think that's why it attracts so many users.

      You have a nice website and display some very good work. Congrats on that ! Look forward to seeing more.

        Loved the gallery on your web site. I spend my days taking zits off seniors or fat and wrinkles off brides. An occasional head swap is about as exciting as it gets. I'd love some projects like yours! Thanks for sharing.

          Hi Everybody,
          I have been wondering about the areas of the US where photo restorers find the most work. I live in retirement heaven and it's not great. Thinking of moving to New Orleans. For lots of reasons but wonder about the art and business opportunities there.

          Starting to try and take my business seriously!
          by TPF

          I have a hobby business at that I have been running for about a year now. I have been very happy with the uptake as I only wanted to make enough to buy my toys (phone etc) each year without dipping into the family budget. Mission accomplished....

          Hi everyone!

          I just found this forum this morning and it looks like there is all kinds of interesting stuff to be found here. A little about me... I own my own photo restoration business named Photo Doctor 911. I started out restoring photos as a hobby 5 or 6 years ago and when I was...
