How To Commission Retouching Work

We get a lot of questions, whether we are able to take retouching clients, how much our retouching services cost, if we have a price list for retouching,…
As a professional retouching studio, we do not have a price list, nor will we provide a retouching price-list publicly.  Reason being, we work mostly corporate direct with photographers or ad agencies. Pricing our retouching services comes down to client request, where images are being published, the amount of similar images in a project, quality expectations, and many more.  In short, we price according to a brief on every project. 

Every retouching project is unique!

Therefore we would like to hear from you and talk about the details of your project. Our goal is to keep prices as fair as possible. In order to do so, contact us and send sample images , a brief or information about an upcoming shoot and what you expect from us.
You will receive an estimate for your approval before retouching work is about to start.

Should You Outsource your Retouching?
