Describe your current muse and where you want your portfolio to be over the next year. Already have your presets locked? Send them my way. Looking for a little assistance transitioning from a polished digital look to a classic film grain? Let’s make it happen.
P A R T N E R U P
In a partnership, I’m able to truly lean in to your work, ensuring every edit matches the creative goals of your business. Partnership invites dialogue and consistent communication to ensure deliverable expectations are met. I’m not an editing house or a fancy line of code, I’m a creative human being who loves to connect and collaborate just like you do. I automate uploads and contracts for ease, but my inbox is always open for connecting over your concerns about lighting and your favorite parts of your busiest shoots.
I’m Alli. West Coast raised, I learned my manners in the middle of the US and am currently the nicest human in Los Angeles. I’m an interdisciplinary artist, at my happiest when immersed in a challenging project. Challenges sometimes involve scraps of cardboard and messy black ink or simply knowing when to incrementally boost shadows to balance out a dark image.
I’ve been working in photography and image editing for 10+ years. I’ve had the privilege of working within diverse creative teams and partnerships: from an upland-hunting publication, to wedding photography duos, to non-profit film programs, to boutique editing partnerships. My most niche editing adventure to date was proofing thousands of Christmas card photos for 10 hours a day. Just call me your trusty editing elf.
I’m an 8 on the Enneagram, a very worthy Settlers of Catan opponent, and a baby rock climber. To balance out my challenger personality, I try to make everything in my life smell like sage or lavender. When I’m not burrowed in a Lightroom Catalogue, you’ll find me illustrating houseplants and eyeballs, making harmony driven electro-pop music, teaching graphic design at an inner-city arts organization, hiking through the Angeles Forest, or hooked on the latest murder podcast series.
Questions & Answers
As a freelance editor, I partner with professional photographers and agencies who’s vision aligns with mine: uplift humanity. I know what I don’t enjoy: unnaturally air-brushed faces and photoshop collage nightmares. I enjoy human-centric, authentic imagery. I’m not interested in making women skinnier or over-processing a solid shot. I’m interested in elevating, accentuating, sharpening, emboldening, emphasizing, and nurturing the good work already being put out in the world.
Partnerships are limited to maintain a personalized and dependable scheduled workload. I love working with new creative humans – dependent on the frequency of your need, there is always room for a conversation about a new partnership.
