Denise Romeo Ierardi / Creative Lead
With over 25 years as a photographic retoucher and printer, Denise brings her color expertise,
experience with traditional fine art photographic printmaking, and digital post production skill sets to 451imaging.
Beginning her career as a film colorist, working with the subtleties of fine art reproduction, Denise worked for many museums and galleries on their publishing projects, and on many acclaimed (or award winning) children's books, colorizing large format chrome film by hand.
Moving into the digital age Denise began her digital retouching career as a Scitex Operator for Conde Nast Publications, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Glamour.
With the arrival of the Mac and Adobe Photoshop, which heralded the desktop publishing breakthrough,
Denise quickly became one of the top beauty and fashion photoshop retouchers in the industry.
