Matthew Bowie teams up with Retoucher Brian York

Photography: Matthew Bowie
Retouching & Compositing: Brian York -

I recently started collaborating with Brian York, a photo retoucher to create a series of portfolio pieces together. I have wanted to work with Brian for the longest time and super stoked about putting our minds together. He is an extremely talented artist and master at compositing elements into an image to create a compelling composition.

This was the first project together so Brian suggested we get together at Montrose Beach on Chicago’s North-side, to capture some background plates for another image he was interested in working with.
