Welcome, my name is James. I'm here to make your life easier and to make your work look great. Based in New York with passport at the ready. Thanks for visiting!

What I Do

Being a retoucher and a digital tech means that I know how important it is to correctly capture a photographer's images the first time, so that as your retoucher I can spend more time making your pictures look amazing and less time fixing mistakes made on the set. My tools: Capture One, Lightroom, Photoshop, digital backs and DSLR tethering.


Who I Am

Born and raised in England, I first moved to Los Angeles and then New York in pursuit of a career in the photography industry. In 2009 I attended the full-time program in New York at the International Center of Photography and discovered my passion for photo technology and the art of retouching. Since then I have worked as a retoucher and digital tech for Harpers Bazaar, Elle UK, Glamour, New York Magazine, Wallpaper* and many others.


My Work

Here are some examples of my retouching taken from various clients within the last three years. I specialize in editorial and fashion portraiture with an emphasis on natural looking hair and skin, and interior design/architecture . Sometimes things on the set can't be moved or altered, and that's where my ability as a retoucher really kicks in. Like magic, it will be gone (or shrunk, or moved...!)

Say Hello.

Don't be shy.
