About Erica Derrickson

Are you a photographer who needs help with their retouching workflow? Or perhaps you're an actor or model who just got some new headshots that have not yet reached their highest potential? Maybe you're a bride who wants a tattoo removed from your wedding pictures, or maybe you're just a regular person who needs some retouching on some pictures before you print them or put them online. Whoever you are, I can help you!

My intention is to enhance the quality and beauty of a photograph in a way that honors the original artistic vision without creating an effect that feels artificial or inauthentic. My style is about balance and attention to detail with a focus on maintaining the highest quality of craft that consistently brings out the best in your images each and every time.

I have over 10 years of experience using Adobe Photoshop with a focus on image retouching at the professional level. I specialize in taking your images and using my fancy photoshop skills to transform them into the absolute best they can be.

I have processed images for international luxury magazines, high end wedding photographers, celebrity headshot photographers, as well as for casual clients who just need a little help with their images here and there. I can make your images look like they belong on a magazine spread, I can remove tattoos, pimples, and oily skin, I can design album layouts, I can create awesome funky effects, poster designs, etc. You name it, I’ll make it happen. What do you need? I’m here to help.

My fee for basic portrait/headshot retouching is $25 per image, but I offer a range of services at a range of prices, some as low as $3 per image. The best thing to do is contact me for a quote and let me know a) what services you require and b) how many images you need worked on.

Basic portrait/headshot retouching services include:
- color/contrast/exposure correction
- skin rescue (goodbye pimples, shine, blemishes, tattoos, scars, unruly eyebrows, blond mustaches, shoddy makeup, etc)
- whiten teeth
- optional makeup correction/improvement (seamlessly add color and intensity to eye makeup)
- basic hair flyaway removal
- subtle eye enhancement (and no, not just by making the whites whiter)

Other services include:
- changing background color
- swapping backgrounds
- combining multiple images
- moving/swapping body parts
- extensive facial/beauty retouching
- extreme slimming/body enhancing
- extensive clothing wrinkle removal
- extensive color correction to any or all garments/color matching garments
- drastically changing overall hair color

Aside from retouching, I also offer layout services for album or book design. I can also design business cards, logos, stationary, you name it.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss what direction you are looking to take your images!
