The number one question Mike gets asked is: “How much for a session”? – which is answered in our FAQ.
However, the next most asked question is: “Do you do Photoshop?” Here, Mike talks you through his answer…
“Yes. Yes I do.
However, most fly-by-night part time “photographers” these days have Photoshop…so why am I different?
The difference between the Craigslist weekend warrior and me, is that I’ve been digitally manipulating my work for over 20 years – longer, in fact, than Photoshop has been around! I was trained on big old industrial computers called “Scitex”. Back before digital cameras and the internet put digital tools in everyone’s hands and made all of us ‘photographers’ I was scanning my own film and altering reality from behind a computer. Over the course of 25+ years as a retoucher, I have worked for Europe’s largest magazine publisher, advertising agencies, and on projects for clients such as Abercrombie and Fitch, Banana Republic, Adidas, Nike, Apple, MINI USA and Converse.”
