    Hi Kristi,

    Your classes are a pleasure to watch. I was unable to find the downloads for the the hair retouching. can you point me in the right direction?

    • Kristi says:

      Hi Robert!
      I’m sorry it took me a few days to get the items up on my store! They’re up there now, and they are the second item listed. Glad you enjoyed my class on KelbyOne.com!

  2. Larry Rose says:

    Greatly enjoyed your High End Hair Retouching tutorial on Kelby1.
    But I can’t find in your store the brushes and global action for hair you mentioned in the tutorial that would be available to us.
    Thank you, Larry

    Hey Kristina,
    I watched your Kelby videos and they are great. Now, I downloaded your awesome pre-sets from Big Deal 2016 and look forward to using them. I am glad you are retouching some of my images.

    • Kristi says:

      I’m thrilled you’ve decided to purchase The Big Deal! It’s an awesome value for the money! I’ll be sending over your retouched images later this week!

    Hi Kristi, You are an inspiration to those of us that would really like to step up our game for brides, families, etc.! After watching your video with Scott Kelby, I tried the free actions but I need a tutorial on how to use the actions you describe – I’m not that skilled with some of the blending, high pass filters, etc. Can you recommend where I may find such a tutorial?
    Thanks so much!

    Hi Kristina,
    Your work is beautiful! I am starting a very small retouching business and would like to inquire about your tutoring fees. (I have Photoshop CS6, Soon will be purchasing a Wacom Intuis 5 tablet). I believe that quality the the most important aspect in what one has to offer clients, and your work really shines! I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance for your time.

    I wanted to know how much it cost the post-production of a wedding of about 50 images. Thank you.

  14. Jennifer says:

    Hi, can you help me please I am starting out as a photo-retoucher and want to create some images like Cass Birds. They are slighlt destaturated and look like they are shot on film. This would really help me out just a tip or two, as I have been trying this all weekend and cant seem to get it right?
    Kind Regards

  15. Kristi is the most phenomenal retoucher I have hired. I found her thru mutual photographer friends/colleagues in the DC area and feel as if I have hit the lottery with her. I have hired her for a few jobs. One, I had a unhappy Mother of the Groom who wanted her ex-husband’s wife removed from a group photo! Kristi to the rescue. She did it beautifully! I was recently hired by a firm to do corporate headshots. One of the individuals is overweight and despite shooting from high angels to minimize that, he wanted to look thinner. Again, Kristi to the rescue. The final images are outstanding. She is responsive, quick and very fairly priced for her high-level work and professionalism. I cannot be happier knowing she’s available to me now!

    I’m a house DJ/Producer/Engineer working on a project. I decided to give Shark Pixels a try and I can only say WOW! The outcome was excellent. Professional and fast service. I just found my photo editor for the rest of my career!

  17. Sambi says:


    I’ve taken a look at your work and I like it.

    I was wondering if you do provide retouching services in exchange for some fee? I have a few photos I need retouched (not so much work though).

    Kindly get back to me with this regards.

    Thanks in advance,

  18. Photographer says:

    How much do you charge? Thank you.

    • Kristi says:

      Thanks for posting! If you could please email me at sherk@sharkpixel.com and include a little more information about what your retouching needs are, I would love to prepare a quote for you!

  19. David says:

    I love your work and found you in an interview you did for Photoshelter. You have inspired me to work harder at my retouching. Like yourself I am a photographer first, a digital tech, an assistant and an inspiring retoucher. That Hasselblad campaign you worked on was just amazing. I have so many questions for you if you ever have a few minutes hit me back 🙂

  24. Hi there,

    I’m very interested in learning more about private retouching classes. I’m a mid-level at Photoshop and have done well with blemish removal via patch tool and clone brushes and I am also doing well with liquify filter. What I require instruction on the most, is lighting skin and working with textures for skin.

    I can be reached anytime, just need a head’s up via email before a call.
