About me

 

I’m an innovative and solutions-driven Creative Retoucher with extensive experience working with a variety of agencies, brands and photographers on a vast array of projects for a diverse set of clients, who are detailed in both my CV (on request) and online portfolio. My work ranges from simple cut-outs/clean-ups, colour-grading including cmyk Litho/Flexo pre press processing right through to creating single images from complex multi-part comps, seamlessly combining photos/renders to form one finished result. I spent ten years managing a photographic/post production studio, where aside from my retouching role, my duties included the scheduling of jobs, lighting, capturing and processing images using Capture One, overseeing junior staff through to the quality control of final images. The experience I gained there gave me the diverse skill set needed to start my own business working across a broad range of fields from advertising (ATL & BTL) television (BBC, Channel Four, Discovery) to editorial (cover/Internal) and Packaging / eCommerce. As a Creative Retoucher I have a meticulous eye for detail. I always strive to work to the highest standard. I’m a skilled problem-solver with an ability to meet tight deadlines without compromising on quality. I’m comfortable creating visuals, taking the lead from an Art Director’s brief or fleshing out a look and feel with minimal guidance whilst also being adept at working under my own initiative. Additionally, using my working knowledge of Cinema 4D and photography, I understand the language of CGI and can comfortably work alongside an operator/photographer in order to obtain the best possible renders/photos for post-CGI retouching. Having created work for prime-time television programmes and cover art for many large publications I believe my strengths lie in the ability to produce exciting and polished custom-made solutions, regardless of budget or difficulty ¬of the brief. I'd welcome the opportunity to show you what I can do. A portfolio of my work can be found at www.rabicano.com which I hope will give you an insight into my range of abilities. Should you require further information, please don't hesitate to contact me. * Small folio with additional work below: https://www.dropbox.com/s/5q312oa64ftmhwj/C%20Rabicano_sm%20folio.pdf?dl=0
