London based retoucher with experience in fashion, portrait, editorial and lifestyle imagery, built through a valuable collaboration with photographers, MUA's and art directors of different styles. The experience gained working with a diverse range of creatives gave me a solid understanding of the best ways to work efficiently under pressure and the requirements of the photography and creative industry. My formal training at Certitec London, combined with different workshops (both in class and online) has given me a solid theoretical knowledge on lighting and colour management, apart from a practical understanding of efficient and non-destructive retouching workflows.Locked Pro Plan feature
