Project Description:
We are seeking an experienced and very proficient person to perform retouching and custom art editing on a regular ongoing basis.

We are a professional photography studio, who specialise in custom art portraits of pregnant ladies, newborn babies and babies up to 1year old.

Approximately 20 images will need to be retouched from each photo shoot. The photos should be retouched so that the "look" from each shoot remains consistent. (One picture should be the same brightness/exposure as another from the same picture set) An initial example for each sequence/prop set up from the shoot will be given for you to match. The images are taken in RAW, will be uploaded to a Dropbox account and you will be required to edit them and save them as JPG's. The successful candidate must be able to edit photos, take feedback well and upload the edited images within 72hours.
Each upload will be treated as a separate project for which which we will pay a fixed price, once the images have been edited to the required standard. For the right candidate there will be ongoing work of 3-4 projects per week, containing approximately 20 images each.

Candidate must:

• Have in-depth knowledge of the latest version of Adobe Photoshop. And be willing to purchase the following Actions, to ensure consistency with our existing editing style.
