Hi my name is Caz, I’m a freelance retoucher living and working in London.
I started my career as a freelance Illustrator, working mainly in a digital format. Through exploring different mediums, I found photo retouching, which I quickly progressed with due to my illustration skills and knowledge of Photoshop. I taught myself the basics of photo manipulation while doing some small freelance jobs and short internships at retouching studios, which lead me to an internship at The Forge. Where over the last four years I worked my way up to senior retoucher.
During my time at The Forge I worked on a wide variety of projects including; fashion, still life, advertising, and lifestyle. Working on wide a range of images has shaped me into a confident and versatile retoucher. Alongside my retouching knowledge I also learnt to manage my own work as well as my colleagues and support junior members of staff. A large part of my job included liaising with and managing agencies and photographers.
I have over 14 years of experience with Adobe Photoshop through illustration and as a retoucher. My background as an illustrator gives me an extra edge and eye for detail especially when it comes to colour, anatomy and composition. I use Capture One alongside photoshop to process images ready to work on.
If you are interested in working with me then I’d love to hear from you!
