Mark Bullen - Professional London Based Creative Retoucher
I have worked in London as a Creative Retoucher since 1988. In 2008 I set up Mark Bullen Limited supplying a retouching service to other retouching companies, advertising agencies, designers and professional photographers. I have been working with clients from their own studios, on location at photo shoots and independently from my home in Greenwich with the latest Mac equipment and software. Since 1988 I have gained a wealth of experience working on all types of retouching projects, which have typically included large advertising campaigns and marketing material for automotive, brand advertising, fashion and beauty. Many past projects have also adopted both photographic and CGI routes, therefore I am completely at home with 32bit render layers. As with all of my clients, I take a great amount of pride in delivering a high standard of work. I like my clients to feel at ease and comfortable that their projects are in a safe pair of hands regardless of the project's size or its budget, so I am good at understanding my client’s retouching needs. Back in my college days I studied design and illustration and these early skills have constantly evolved and always enabled me to apply the correct level of realism with a learnt watchful eye to all of my clients' retouching projects. Below are a series of rather cool record sleeves which are great memories of some of my retouching back in the halcyon days of the Quantel Graphic Paintbox. Enjoy!
