Free Photo Retouching Opportunity for Models & Non-Models

When it comes to retouching and modeling photos, it's easy for retouchers to get carried away. We've all seen examples of extreme results where the model doesn't even look real. The role of retouching is a big one in the modeling industry and while appearing flawless is the goal, you don't want to go overboard.

Magazines, ads, catalogs and other publications do call for a high level of retouching most times. But for those of you getting photos done for things like your headshot, comp/zed card and general modeling portfolio, you don't want to appear like an airbrushed creation.

Not all photographers stick to the minimum when touching up photos for models. The best headshots and comp cards are those where you can't really tell any extensive retouching has been done.

For those of you that have modeling images that are in need of subtle retouching that gets the job done and still keeps you looking picture-perfect, I wanted to post about an opportunity to have this service done for free. Yes, you read right: free of charge, free 99, no money, nada, zip, ziltch, no strings attached.

How did I come across this opportunity, you ask? Well, I was contacted via email by Jeff Wood, who is building up his business offering editing and touching up people's photos. He provided me with his before and after images to showcase his skills and I felt this would be a great way for you models out there, especially freelance male and female models, to have the chance to get pictures retouched free of charge.

Below are samples of Jeff's work:

To take advantage of this free service, please email Jeff directly at: beautifulphotoedit@gmail.com. His official website is still under construction but soon as it's up and running, I'll be sure to update this post with a link. I do not work with or for Jeff so please send all questions to his email and not mine--I have no answers, lol.

Please note, you do NOT have to be a model to get your photos retouched! Of course this is an ideal opportunity for models of all experience levels but even if you're not interested in modeling and just have some nice pictures that you'd like polished, contact Jeff and he'll take care of you.
