Photo Illustration,
Twisted Horn Image was created in 1992 using Photoshop 2.5. Yes before layers. If we could do that then, imagine what we could do for you today. We have over 40 years of retouching and color correcting experience including before there was Photoshop using dyes, bleach, brushes and airbrushes and paint.

Services and Process,

In today’s world of photography and advertising, working with a professional and creative photo realistic retouching artist is essential to your vision and business. This process is beneficial for more than just basic technical needs. Creative photo realistic retouching truly plays an important role in creating the final image your clients desire, and reflect the quality that you will to deliver.

•    Agencies

As an independent photo realistic retoucher, We work alongside some of the top advertising photographers and among other creative teams to create the visual trends you see today. The diverse opportunities and projects we have experienced allow us to bring a sense of contemporary style, refinement, and unique vision to any project as well as a network within the industry of other professional retouchers and digital artist to collaborate with for those larger projects.

•   Photographers

It is imperative that you separate yourself from the pack by working closely with a photo realistic retoucher. One who not only has the ability to fulfill the technical needs required, but one who will provide a fresh and creative approach. It is especially important to work with someone that has experience with all types of retouching, food, products, jewelry, people, cars, houshold,…  You need someone to trust, feel comfortable and communicate well with. Our photography clients are busy out doing what they love, making photographs. We are ready to work alongside the creative team to ensure that a project achieves the needs of the client, in a timely and efficient manner. Through experience, We have achieved the delicate balance necessary through a level of understanding when it comes to the client’s needs. Keeping these standards through maintaining the vision, personal style and aesthetic of the photographer’s body of work, while carefully creating the final image to match the fresh and current trends in advertising, as well as the client’s outward perception of their brand, is what separates our work from others in the field.


•    Photographic Compositing

Crafting a detailed, unique single image from multiple images, where the final product presents itself as both reliable and cohesive, is our passion. In this process, We pay close attention to detail down to each individual pixel, while blending and correcting lighting, delivering the ultimate goal of a fresh and clear, unified image. We work meticulously delivering a final result that fits perfectly, while never cutting corners.

•    Specialty Retouching

Projects involving beauty, cars, product, architecture retouching and other subject matter can require special understanding of what is needed as well as the way light interacts with the materials. We have worked on projects involving a wide range of subject matter. If needed we can always provide more samples of work that fall within your specific needs.

•    Photographic Detail Creation

A tedious task but one that is necessary to fill in gaps in an image when source material is not available  Creating detail is sometimes done in composites but occasionally can be needed to solve problems in a single image. To create detail at a photographic level requires good old fashion retouching techniques combined with a myriad of Photoshop tricks to give it that photographic feel.

•    Quick Turnaround

When you are up against a deadline and it just has to be done we will make it happen. We have hundreds, thousands of projects that have been completed start to finish overnight or over the weekend. Some due to short photography to press dates others due to last minute changes to a project. Whatever it is we will work to make it happen, just contact us by phone as opposed to email as soon as possible so we can plan on freeing up time for you.

•    Photographer’s Portfolio Retouching and Pricing

As a photographer to get the type of work you want you have to show that type of work in your portfolio and that should involve working and collaborating with a retoucher.

•   Pre-Production Creative

The best results always come when everyone works together; I prefer working together from the start with the photographer and or the agency team to expand upon ideas as well as strategy to get the best results.
