Anna came to us seeking help for her portrait work.
Prior to outsourcing, Anna would spend 3-5 hours retouching each shoot. Using Adobe Photoshop, our team of retouchers removes blemishes, softens the skin, whitens teeth and eyes, and extends backdrops where needed, all per Anna’s standards. She can now be more focused on the actual shoot, and spend more time with her family!
- A BRIEF CHAT WITH ANNA SNEED
What kind of photography do you specialize in?
Portraits, mostly of dancers
How many shoots do you photograph?
Somewhere around 50 a year.
Tell us about your editing solution prior to The Image Salon. How much time did you spend editing each week before The Image Salon?
I would spend 3 to 5 hours editing per hour of shooting, more if it's a set of photos that require a heavier skin edit.
Why did you decide to outsource? Why did you choose The Image Salon?
I don't feel quite proficient at high end retouching and I want the best for my clients. I often don't have the time during busy seasons to bust out everything in time. I used to shoot weddings and used The Image Salon for some of those. I originally chose the Image Salon because Daniel and Davina come highly recommended professionally and personally through my network here in Austin, Tx.
Now that you outsource, how has your business benefited from the extra time you have?
I feel free to book more work. I know what I pass over will be amazing and the best it can be.
How do you spend your day away from the camera?
I have a 3 year old and a French bulldog and you will find us on the greenbelt in Austin!
