Project Description

We are looking for a retoucher to add to our team! This person will be responsible for retouching of all our studio images - from skin corrections to color adjusts etc. We have a very specific process for editing that requires skills and knowledge in both Lightroom and Photoshop - and both pieces of software will be required. Our studio focuses on natural light, custom Family, Children and High School Senior portraiture, so preference will be given to a retoucher who has experience with these genres. Please include some of your editing work with your application - showing before (SOOC) and after your edit. Because our studio prides itself in delivering finalized printed images - timely editing is crucial. You must be able to turn around a complete session within 1 week of receiving it. You will be paid a fixed amount per image that you edit ($[url removed, login to view]). Each session normally includes up to 15-20 images, but can be anywhere up to 35 images.

You will be asked to answer the following questions when submitting a proposal: Do you have any questions about the job description? Have you taken any Upwork tests and done well on them that you think are relevant to this job? What part of this project most appeals to you? What past project or job have you had that is most like this one and why?

Then when there are candidates that I want to reach out to because I like what I see in their applications - I send something like this: Hello Jason, Thanks for your application. I would be interested in sending you 2-3 images to do test edits. One of which I will send a completed final image so that you can see how a typical final image looks with the before and after. I will intentionally give very little instruction as to these test edits, because I've found that if I give the space for the retoucher to use their own skill, then I'll know how close they will get to the final look I am after. If you're interested, let me know and I'll get those sent to you. Thanks! Emily
