Welcome to my site. Below are some examples of my Photo Enhancement, 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, a professional Photographer and as a college instructor in Photoshop, Illustrator, HTML and CSS. I have extensive experience in digital Post-Capture Processing, Retouching, Enhancement and Restoration. In 1991, I began using Photoshop 2.0 and have been using updated versions of it ever since.
I improve images. I also process RAW images. Professional photographers often hire someone like me to process their RAW images. All cameras record in RAW format and then most people let the camera convert the images. The problem is, the camera doesn't know what looks best, so having an experienced eye process images, makes a big difference in quality. I also do retouching, enhancement, conversion to black and white and photo restoration. This may be anything from cosmetic tweaks, to a major reconstruction to save a treasured memory.
Most of my clients, desire anonymity, which I always provide. They don't want me showing those dreaded "before" pictures! Below are some authorized examples of my work.

I’ll process your images for whatever look you desire. These images reflect my own personal preference, which could be called a “Golden Hour” look. But I can also get in sync with your preferred look.
