'If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.' - Red Adair I am expirienced high- end photo retoucher, one of the best here in oDesk. I have worked for major Bulgarian companies. I am offering only the very best retouching service and quality. Although a lot of contractors would be tempted to hire cheaper freelancer to do the job, there are some major differences which I would like to point out - First, and foremost, when you are trying to promote your brand, the first thing your clients are going to see are your photos. Think of online stores (clothes, products, technology), billboards (again..), magazines, flyers, brochures, look-books, etc, etc. The first thing that catches your client's eyes is the photo. The photo is the representation of your product and brand. The client doesnt usually see the effort put into making the product, or the time spent on it, or how much technical skill is put into it. He sees only an image of a final product- which is just like all other products he sees daily. If the photo is cheaply done (for example: plastic face, colors which are ok, but not enhanced to "catch the eye", misused techniques, etc) it will represent your brand as cheap. Here is a fast example with a swimwear. Both photos are retouched. The first one is retouch with porcelain skin effect, badly retouched, bad shadows and highlight and bad photo manipulation - you can very clearly see the girl is fakely put into the background. This is cheap work, and make your brand looks cheap. This is what you are usually getting for cheap retouch. Second is professional retouch. 1) http://oi61.tinypic.com/10x5vlz.jpg (bad retouch) 2) http://oi62.tinypic.com/1197yo4.jpg These extra few dollars spent into retouching to hire a professional, will actually bring you a lot more money. Retouching is investment in your brand and your product. -I am familiar with human anatomy, which is essential in retouching. There are incredible amount of retouchers, who doesnt give attention to that, which results in "photoshop fails", even for big companies like Target and Victoria secret. Do you think your average 5$/h knows anatomy? - I am good in color correction. I know how to change and alter colors , so your photo catches the eye. Speaking of colors, here are some examples. - I am speaking English. You would be surprised how many people here have their profiles and cover letters written for them. It looks alright, until you hire the person and start talking with him about the project- then it turns out, he doesnt quiet do what you want, because he can't really understand you. - I am creative, and I can give that extra- something your photo needs to reach the next level. - I am hardworking, reliable, and I always keep deadlines.

Let me briefly tell you a little about myself and my experience, so you know we would be a good fit for each other. Then, if you like, we can arrange a first meeting. About Me: My name is Sokchea Doung. I live in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, which, if you didn't know it, as many people do not, has quite a number of highly technically advanced people like myself. I am an independent, which means you do not have to go through a middle man to work with me as you do through an agency. On a more personal note, I am married with children, and I work through Skype and Gmail with my clients around the world to achieve great results fast.
3D obsessive seeks work to make the screaming stop at night. Expansive experience, my primary passion and focus is pure modelling. I love a challenge, ask me to do something not done before, I dare you! I humbly consider myself an expert in 3DSmax w/Vray, Zbrush and Photoshop. I'm comfortable with many other software packages, but those aforementioned are my real strength. Seems I won the top 25 providers on Odesk again, in fact this month (dec) I came second to an Indonesian chap, who only charges $5ph... at that price he can keep first place I don't want it that bad. ;) Methodology: Whilst I am in your employ I like to stream my desktop so you can look over my shoulder and provide feedback at your leisure. I'm also happy to chat whilst I work, though I need both hands, so it needs to be via headset I'm afraid. Strong, clear, concise communication is absolutely paramount, and that works both ways. Dialogue is great, however summarising all discussion via email/chat is important so we may record an agreed course of action. I work a regular GMT working week, but can be called to my desk via txt, email or whatsap most of the time. Footnote: Top 3 lines that make me chortle... one or more bundled with every other project. "Once I get my funding I'll be able to pay you what you are worth" - Classic Catch-22. It sounds like you need my work to raise the money to pay me. I want to work, not gamble. "There's much more work on the horizon, if you're good I can keep you busy for years" - Classic pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. You can never reach the horizon, so the analogy is quite accurate. with these words said I've received dazzling feedback, client was blown away, jaws were dropped.. yet the 'more work' never transpires. "You're rate seems a higher than others, can you do it for..." - Classic False economy. It may seem high compared to some, unless you consider that I could (and would) do something in one day that it would take someone else (probably a less scrupulous person) a month to do. My rate is based upon my 9 years of experience, top end rig, and the breadth of work I've done. Ultimately I charge for working at full tilt, nose to the grindstone. I don't eek out my hours to con you into paying more. Every minute I log I am proactively working. I don't bill to put the kettle on, or to relieve myself. If you feel I am working on something I wasn't asked to, or that I'm dragging my heels, I'll prove otherwise or refund those hours. Aside from being a decent honest way to work, I find this gets the job done quicker and is more lucrative for me, whilst also keeping my output high. I love what I do, I hope you will too. thanks, Sam
Over the last several years I have developed many websites using a variety of methods. I enjoy the flexibility that CSS/XHTML provides, so that is my medium of choice - all of my work is standards-compliant (XHTML 1.0 strict), and I have also converted many outdated sites into standards-compliant sites with table-free CSS layouts and improved functionality, leading to a better overall user experience. In addition to web coding, I have extensive experience in photography and traditional graphic design. My goal is always to produce sites that are as visually appealing as they are functional. I also have experience working with ColdFusion, Flash, PHP, JavaSript, and related technologies, and can convert PSD files into themes for Wordpress, Joomla, osCommerce, and similar formats, with great attention to detail and retention of full functionality. I believe in keeping 'the big picture' in mind - I incorporate SEO techniques into every project, and plan projects to allow for future expansion and updates.
