A friend once called me RetouchRiley, I laughed, and it stuck. My name is Elizabeth Riley and I've been working professionally as a retoucher for 18 years. I studied commercial photography at the Art Institute of Philadelphia while digital was taking over the darkroom. When I graduated, I moved to NYC, and immediately I was working for the photographers I idolized. I've worked with the most talented creatives. After a decade of working in NYC, I looked outdoors to find balance in my life. I started rock climbing. I moved to Colorado and soon I began working for adventure photographers and outdoor industry brands.
I also produce photo shoots on location in Colorado for global brands including pre-production planning, technical location scouting, talent management, onsite producing, and high-end retouching.
I provide photography production services for brands, ad agencies, photographers, magazines, publishers, media, and production companies throughout the US. When I'm not working I love to be outside playing in the mountains, backcountry skiing, trail running, mountain biking, climbing, or spending time with my family, friends, and my dog.
