Mike Vorrasi was born and raised in the metropolitan area of Washington DC. While studying film and video production at Catholic University he discovered Photoshop in its early stages and quickly realized his natural aptitude for it. This led him to a teaching assistant position at the Palm Beach Photographic Center in Florida, where he worked with top Photoshop evangelists, teaching classes of all levels. The center also exposed Mike to many photographers. Moving to New York in 1999, Mike worked for photographers retouching on shoots. He then served as the in-house retoucher for Avon. Mike has been a full time retoucher and color correction specialist at GE since the beginning of our digital department. Mike also works as a freelance photographer and makes his own work in his free time. (photo: Diego Garcia from Elefant SXSW 2002)
