Welcome to my site. Below are some examples of my Post-Processing, Retouching and Restoration work.
I spent twenty-five years as a freelance Illustrator, starting out before the advent of the computer and then transitioning into digital. I’ve also worked as a Graphic Designer, professional Photographer and as a college instructor in Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML and CSS. I have extensive experience in digital Post-Processing, Photo Retouching, Photo Enhancement and Restoration. In 1991, I began using Photoshop 2.0 and have been using it ever since.
I process RAW image files. All digital cameras capture images in a RAW format, but they are often automatically processed by the camera, with varying results. Professional photographers usually hire someone like me to do their post-processing. Having an experienced eye, to process your images, makes a considerable difference in quality. I also do photo-retouching, enhancement and photo restoration. This may be anything from small cosmetic tweaks, to major reconstruction to save a treasured memory.
Most of my clients, for obvious reasons, desire anonymity, which I always provide. Below are some authorized examples of my work. For more information please contact Steve Chalker at 972-414-5353.
If you decide to work with me, I will process your images for whatever look you desire. These images reflect my own personal preference, which might be called a Kodachrome look. You know, nice bright colors, greens of summers, makes you think all the world's a sunny day. But I can also get in sync with your preferred look.
