 Natural Beauty Retoucher

Porcelain Mannequins are not welcomed here.

At SMP, we believe true beauty happens when we love who we are. We see the exquisite beauty of each client at their session so that when they fall in love with the photographs, they fall in love with themselves. Full professional editing is done on each photograph before a client receives the final piece of art to frame. 


The Spider TEAM seeks an experienced retoucher to enhance the natural beauty of photographs.

If you meet the qualifications below, submit your application for consideration:​

  • Experience in cleaning-up photographs to produce natural beauty images.

  • Highly proficient in both Lightroom and Photoshop.

  • Work at a quick pace, 8-10 photos in one day, completed within one week. 

  • "undetected" cleanup = attention to fine details to smooth light gradients, object removal, smoothing out clothing, and color correcting.

If you believe you are a fit for this role, submit a sample portfolio of skin and body work along with your resume below.


Thank you for your interest — We’ll be in touch soon.
