About me

I am a very experienced, reliable and trusted photoshop artist, high end Retoucher, conceptual designer and 3D visualiser. I am disciplined, diligent, a true craftsman within photoshop, possessing both technical knowledge and artistic creativity. With 23 years experience in this creative genre of the industry, I live and breathe creative and artistic retouching. I am self motivated, ambitious and cultured whilst being aware of the evolution within the industry having worked for nearly a quarter of a century as a creative retoucher. I am fearless, bold and old school in my working method,with a knowledge and skill set second to none. I am aware of current trends and I am culturally motivated and influenced from every direction whether it's music, fine art, graffiti, media, travel, fashion, philosophy or the arts. I am unique and a valuable asset to any creative environment. I have volunteered with Greater Manchester Police as a special constable. I also train in the martial arts. My ambition is great as is my potential, I've acquired skills, knowledge and techniques, along with my natural artistic and creative nature that are ready to be unleashed on potential opportunities. I am always seeking to progress in my career in the creative world and accept new challenges when they present themselves. I have the means to freelance remotely, to create and produce incredible imagery, by means of high end retouching, image manipulation and composition.
