My name is Greyson Collins. I have been a successful photographer, retoucher, and color corrector for over 10 years. I am super passionate about helping other photographers and retouchers grow in their skills, knowledge, and inspiration.
When I first got into photography I had a hard time figuring out all of the skills that I needed to produce the looks I wanted in my photos. I felt like photographers were really secretive about their editing and shooting techniques. I want to change that.
My goal is to teach everything I have learned about photography and retouching to others who want to know. I don't want to hold anything back. I believe that every photographer who wants to be successful has to have the knowledge of the tools AND be unique. I want to help others be successful. I look forward to working with all of you!
