Professional Research & Retouching

The gallery of images you see before you showcase just a small sample of the kind of work I have done in my professional career up until now as a photo researcher and editor. This gallery encompasses my various photo research, retouching, colorization and writing skills that I have done for various clients ranging from magazine and book publications, to DVD packaging, to promotional TV spots. All of this work has been done over the past 16 years on PCs and using the basic elements of Photoshop.
