Digital Photo Retoucher and Compositor

Category: Art / Creative
Description
I provide expert retouching at all levels, ranging from very natural looks to extreme fantasy effects. I also do a lot of photo compositing, where I might change the background of an image, add other elements, take out elements, etc. Once I had to add a window to a corporate group shot behind the people in the shot, make a certain skyline view visible though the window, take out one of the people in the shot, and add two new people.
Relevant Education / Credentials
Extensive course work and independent study of photo retouching and manipulation. Twelve years of extensive experience in Photoshop and related programs.
Years Experience: 12

Web Designer

Category: Internet / Web
Description
I design web sites using HTML, CSS, Flash, and hybrid sites. My sites are search-engine optimized to achieve top rankings from Google and other search engines. Some web designers are primarily developers and concerned mostly with functionality. Some are primarily designers concerned mostly with the looks of the site. In addition to these skills, I think it is even more important to provide effective marketing, so the site works well for the site owner and provides a great return on her investment.
Relevant Education / Credentials
Learned to do Flash sites for my own sites and those of present clients, and then branched out to traditional HTML technology for better search engine results and for compatibility with iPhones and Apple products. We also do site makeovers and ecommerce sites. We especially love working on sites for creative products and services.
Years Experience: 8
