  • FREE Retouching for photograhers

    I am a mid-level retoucher looking for images to work on and up my skills.

    My ultimate goals are high-end beauty and jewelry, but am still working on honing these skills.

    I am not a photographer. So I don't have my own images at the moment.

    Would be willing to do some retouching for you for free in exchange to use your images.

        Plus it makes it very difficult for those of us trying to make a living from it when everyone offers to do it for free.

          Seriously? come on... there's plenty of pictures out there and it's VERY common to do T work when starting out.

          If a beginner is serious competition for you, you're not very confident about your skills.

          chill, it's a big world and more importantly a FREE one (well... most of it :p)

                  Depends on the project... but... from 150 to 300 USD per image - why?

                  I have done some Manipulation - non fashion or beauty that were more expensive tho... + 20 hours

                    Ok … I give up. I'm thinking of moving into banking. Apparently I can do a 9 to 6 Monday to Friday, half asleep, sitting in a nice office in Canary Wharf - and get payed £300,000 a year for this! What have I been doing!

                      ok.... might be a language thing... but I don't get it... I'm completely screwing the biz up by undercharging or I'm charging too much?

                        perhaps mark said that you're too good to charge little.

                          In my opinion, you have a better chance of getting the job if you charge less, don;t quote yourself too far down, but maybe 15% less than what they would charge. Remember one thing, Box Studio is a well known name, and people tend to trust names they know. So if you and them are charging the same price, they would feel more comfortable going to them.

                          You should charge as much or more if you can produce something better than they can.
