Who is Pratik Naik

Pratik Naik is a high end retoucher based out of the United States, specialized in commercial and editorial work. He is currently represented by the agency, One Mega Management, out of London, UK.

 

"My proficiency with retouching and Photoshop stems from over 10 years of experience in the field.

As a retoucher, I am influenced through my training in fine art. This is where my passion for retouching comes from. My belief in retouching is based on simplicity and efficiency. I aim to always stay in line with the vision of the photographer while making images as perfect as possible. The end goal is to keep the images as natural as possible while still being perfect in the eyes of the photographer.
 
Aside from working in the field, I enjoy teaching. I find that many people want to know the essentials of what I do for a living in a way that is easily understood. I aim to cater to those needs. There is no greater joy than being able to show someone what they want to know. That moment they finally get it is a great moment and I want to help as many people as possible."
