About me

 

I have a vast experience in technical and creative photo retouching working with Adobe Photoshop (Macintosh OS). As a retoucher I have produced impactful images working for magazine covers, fashion shoots, product and food, advertisement campaigns, and e-commerce among others. This includes high profile work with colour correction, light effects, cropping, manipulation, multiple layer compositions, resizing and illustration. I’m proficient with Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 and Adobe Lightroom   With an artistic background (Fine Arts Faculty) and a great attention to detail I worked directly with photographers and for design and advertising companies as a freelancer as well as part of a team.  Used to work with tight deadlines my problem solving skills and ability to prioritise were noticed and I came to manage a post production department in a design company for five years.   When in 1995 I discovered Adobe Photoshop my illustration skills increased by using all the application's potential. All my illustration work became solely digitally produced.  Exploring the software in depth led me to start working on photography post-production.This is where my illustration skills combined with and enhanced my post production work. Due to my proficiency in Photoshop I was invited in 2005 to create a Photo editing short course for an art school in Lisbon which I taught for three years.   Beyond my enthusiasm for digital I am also an art photographer using analog techniques.  CV FERNANDO MARTINS  171, Stoke Newington High Street Flat 3 N16 0NY London Mob: 07910 767 223 fernandoguerreiromartins@gmail.com Website: http://fernando-martins.com   Photo Retoucher, Photographer and Illustrator • Extensive experience in the magazine, newspaper, advertisement and fashion industries. • Incredible eye for detail and experience in creating powerful images • Able to work independently as well as within a team. •Very strong skills in: -Adobe Photoshop CS6 -Adobe Lightroom • Fluent in: -Portuguese -English -French Education: • 1991-1995 FBAUL (Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Lisbon) in Communication Design, Lisbon, Portugal Work experience: • 2015- Freelance Retoucher in London, UK • 2009-2015- Photo Retoucher coordinator for Up inflight magazine - (TAP), 2009-2016 • 2000-2010- Worked as an illustrator for the following magazines and newspapers in Portugal and in Europe: -Expresso -O Independente - Público -Maxima - Elle - Cosmopolitan -Diário Económico - Exame -Executive Digest -Reader's Digest (Portugal and Netherlands) - Bulles Dingues (France) -Diário de Notícias • 2005-2008-Developed and taught a short course in Photo Editing at AR.CO -Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual (Arts and Visual Communication Centre), Lisbon, Portugal • 1999-2015-Worked as an illustrator and Photo Editor for several graphic design, advertising and media agencies in Portugal and in Europe: -EuroRSCG -Young & Rubicam -Ogilvy -JWT -Blug -Lowe -TBWA -Grey -Born -Ivity -McCann Erickson -Kyoto -NormaJean -Publicis - Fischer  - Adore -Way -Silva Designers • 1996-2001-Photo Retoucher Director at Brandia-Novodesign, Lisbon, Portugal, 1996-2001 More • 2007-Illustrated the packaging for Imaginarium toys worldwide Photo Editor for several advertisement, fashion and artistic photographers •  2010- Published the Book/ Graphic Novel Pop Dell’Arte •  2013- Created the identity design for Las Ficheras, Mexican Restaurant, Lisbon •  2012- Published on the online photography magazine Oito for the themed issue on
