The Requests That A Magazine Retoucher Gets Will Shock You


"Sometimes you’re doing something for a celebrity almost like you feel like you’re doing them a favor. You’re not being asked, but you know that’s a very popular person and you know that they should be presented in the best possible light. So you feel like, OK, I’m going to tuck in this person’s stomach and I’m going to take a few pounds off their hips. You kind of feel like you should do this for them as a person that people really like. [Maybe] it’s a red carpet picture that someone took at an awkward angle and you just feel kind of responsible. I actually retouched a picture of Martha Stewart even though nobody asked me to, but I felt like I had to do it because it was just such a horribly taken picture. There is a professional courtesy that you do a little when you’re not asked."

Fascinating read. It still blows my mind things that photographers/retouched get asked to alter. Of course I edit but I always, always try to get what I want right in camera and consciously keep any retouching very natural.

Taking Back Sunday - London - February 2014

I had the pleasure of shooting some portraits with the gentlemen of Taking Back Sunday for DIY at the end of February. After seeing the guys had dressed up as Marvel superheroes for their Halloween show, I couldn’t resist shooting them in front of this awesome wall of comic books! 

Hurray! I have a new blog! This will be where I post all my new work from now on. I’ll still be using this one for more text heavy updates and behind the scenes type stuff and any oddities, though.
