There's a few things you need to consider when paying for retouching rather than just asking how much.


-What is the quality of the photo you are starting with?
-What do you expect as an end result?
-How fast will you get the final image?

If I am asked to retouch a less than quality image I will more than likely turn the job down. Not that I couldn't figure out how to work some kind of magic but I have to consider the time I will put into the image vs. the final quality result. You can only "fix up" to a certain extent and I don't want a low quality image reflecting poorly on me and my abilities.

I try to only do the basic retouching (blemishes, scars, smoothing out skin tone, etc..) from there if I want or a client wants I will add special touches (making a photo look vintage, dramatic contrast, etc.) all in all I try to spend a maximum of 20-45 minutes retouching an image.

Some people out there are retouching wizards and can really make a whole scene out of nothing and if done correctly can create visually stunning image. Done incorrectly and it creates a visual disaster looking cheap and destroying a portfolio.

Most important thing is to have quality images to start with. You can have professional shots or take shots at home with your own camera (I can offer advice on how to do this later if wanted) a point and shoot camera can do the job if done correctly. Just get away from the mirror shots, bathroom shots, bedroom shots, etc..

This all said if I outsource retouching or am asked to do retouching on an image by another photographer or model with proper approvals a fair price to me is in the range of $15-$30 an hour and depends a lot on the amount of images to be retouched and how extensive the retouching.

A basic retouch of blemishes and basic enhance for a single image I would charge $25.00 and offer two completed shots with web-ready duplicates.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or comments. I'm more than happy to offer my advice.
