Clients
Do you offer advice on up-coming shoots?
Yes I am always willing to offer advice on any up-coming shoots you may have on any subject. I strongly advise you always talk to a retoucher before a shoot that requires retouching as it could save time and therefore money.

How do I enlist your services?
That’s easy, just make contact either by email or phone. Explain your requirements and email me any supporting images and layout information. I will work on the project and send you work in progress images at key positions. Once you are completely happy with the finish piece and you have signed it off, it will be available at high resolution for you to download.

How much do you cost?
It’s too difficult to price a project without seeing any images or even a brief and besides a very simple pathing job cannot be priced at the same rate as a heavily illustrated and highly creative piece. Please see the article I wrote entitled “How to Price Yourself as a Retoucher”.

Do you offer a discount for quantity?
Yes for large ongoing projects there is always room for negotiation.

How do I get files to you?
I have accounts at Dropbox and yousendit. I also have my own ftp site and will issue you with a username and password. Alternatively if you have your own method for transferring large files I am happy to use it.

What file format do you work in?
I can work in virtually any file format but my preference is for RGB.

Do you do any 3D CGI work?
I work hand in hand with a 3D expert for those impossible to shoot jobs.

Do you have a fully colour controlled system?
Yes

Do you charge usage rights?
The majority of work I do not charge usage rights for. I only charge usage rights for large national or international campaigns of a very creative nature which are highly composited images.

Do you charge for late payments?
Yes there is an interest charge of 1% per week
