About Background

I solve visual problems. In my long career retouching commercial photography, I've seen it all and “tweaked” it all. I've learned that while some projects require major overhaul of an image, sometimes a subtle change can make a crucial difference in visual impact.

In a time when people often do their own retouching, I still get the "hard jobs" and the ones that aren't perceived as much “fun”. Images that benefit from an experienced eye and a deep bag of tricks.

In addition to enhancing photography, I enjoy creating original graphic designs and illustrations. My skill with images provides freedom and creativity for my approach to design. Anything is possible, and with any design imaginable, I enjoy planning and then creating it – from start to finish.

I would love to help with your design projects! See my Contact page to send files you'd like help with.
