Expert Photo Retouching

Melanie Alcantara Correia is the founder and mastermind behind Premium Retouch. Born into a culture which celebrates vibrant color and diversity, it’s no wonder that she became passionate about art at a young age. Her impressive kindergarten doodles, evolved into prize winning art pieces at high school.

Inspired by the timeless beauty of human expression and emotion, Melanie’s first professional ventures in the art world were portraits. Many of these original pieces still adorn walls in the homes of friends and family in her native country, Trinidad and Tobago.

As a young adult Melanie moved to the United States to pursue a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts degree. She went on to add a Bachelor of Science in Computer Graphics and Advertising to her qualifications. Once she completed her studies, she immersed herself in the world of corporate advertising for over 15 years.

The wealth of experience that she has gained, along with continuing professional development has made her an international expert in the world of graphics and professional retouching.

Premium Retouch is a boutique retouching studio. I help my clients to get their images ready for the world by offering high end retouching services to an international clientele. Focused on natural retouching with high attention to detail, color and tone, my finished images are optimized to attract potential customers viewing a catalog, web ad or billboard. I specialize in lifestyle, beauty, fashion, wedding jewelry & e-commerce editing for personal, editorial and commercial use. I am passionate about my craft and are dedicated to producing beautiful images which maintain, yet enhance the creative integrity of every image.
