      ~ Portrait Perfection by Jim Downing ~


Bridal, Wedding, all of your Photography and Portraits can be perfect with ‘Retouch Photo.’  This is a recent favorite “soft focus”  Jim Downing created for me …..


Jim’s creative side,  a cool shade here…

Sandy & Coco Dec 31-08 012

The original photo taken with a Canon Power Shot A540.  Digital seems to makes teeth and skin tone yellow ….or maybe it’s just my camera and lighting.   

“Thanks again Jim”….I always appreciate your work,  it makes me look my best and ‘younger’ too!  (Certainly cheaper and less painful than plastic surgery. )  ūüôā

I recommend Jim to everyone who desires beautiful portraits. If you want smooth skin, elimination of lines and imperfections, correction on photograph mishap or restoration on old family photographs then  Jim’s your man.

I use Jim Downing exclusively for all retouch at ‘Artistry by Sandy’ …and I’m passing on his information if you wish to consider his services.  

‘As a Professional Photographer Jim Downing took a career path that includes extensive travel within the beautiful and diverse state of California. He graduated from the New York Institute of Photography in 1986 which has boosted his freelance career. He’s quoted to say,  “Photography is my passion, it expresses my life!”

In the past decade Jim has creatively used and developed  a “Specialized Program” in the art of “Retouch and Enhancement” to make any Portrait unique.

Jim’s work is color corrected personally and printed on Hahnemuhle fine art paper which gives a high resolution for sharper images. Prints are matted on high quality acid free museum quality 8 ply matts. These specialized matts are for 13×19 prints from my fine art gallery.
