Founding of MK Retouching
We believe in the power of a strong team within any creative project. This is why we continuously seek for the best techniques through inspiration in arts as well as through networking with other retouchers and photographers around the globe.
Our strong work ethic and a good understanding of the client’s needs lead to project results that go beyond expectations. In addition, we established a completely non-destructive workflow that helps to accelerate the overall process.
