In any competitive industry, there are technical and creative hurdles we must overcome. For many working freelance photographers, beauty retouching is one of those exact hurdles.

I understand completely, beauty retouching sometimes appears to be this difficult and tedious process, something that seems so technically advanced you don't even know where to start. Even Universities and Colleges tend to omit important techniques and information that relates to these very skills.


Well I am here to tell you that learning the skills associated with beauty retouching changed my photography career for the better. My Photoshop skills flourished, my income multiplied and it also presented a whole new range of incredible opportunities I could never even have dreamed of.


Maybe you're a photographer looking to make the switch into beauty photography, or maybe you just love the sound of a retouching career. I can tell you that no matter what, this course can help you with the foundations to reach those career goals and provide you with specialised editing skills that are highly desired within this industry.

  • Currently work as photographers or hobbyist photographers and would like to make the switch into beauty photography and retouching
  • People interested specifically in beauty retouching

This course is probably not for you if:

  • You want to learn very advanced retouching techniques

Testimonial & Past Student Work


"I absolutely loved taking the retouching course for beginners with Kayleigh.

I am not a photographer so I initially thought it would be difficult, but I felt like the course was still very informative even for those who are not already in the photography industry.

Kayleigh was also very responsive and gave lots of photos for us to practice on if we didn't have any of our own. I am happy with my experience and I am excited to start using my new skills! "- Michelle G
