Testimonials

James Dimmock logo "Working with D'Arcy is one of the smoothest experiences possible. From day one she understood my needs as a photographer, she respects the direction I wish to take the project and yet still has the talent and intelligence to think outside of the box and bring something new to the table when needed."
ESPN logo "I have had the absolute pleasure of working with D'Arcy many times over the last four years. She has great knowledge, exceptional skill, a tremendous work ethic and a most pleasant attitude. Whatever the job, be it nude bodies for THE BODY ISSUE, fashion, or product, D'Arcy delivers on time, and with a stellar final result."
Nordstrom logo "D'Arcy is simply one of THE BEST to work with, not only because her execution is so conscientious and precise, but also because she never shies from any challenge. She is a fantastic person to partner with on projects because she takes all aspects into account and helps arrive at the best possible outcome - while carefully considering every variable. I am always thankful to have her eyes on anything I'm working on!"
Peter Hapak logo "I had the pleasure of recently working with D'Arcy Hyde on a project for ESPN The Magazine. I found D'Arcy to be extremely easy to work with as she took the time to listen carefully and understand the direction both myself and ESPN gave her. I had specific direction for her to follow which she incorporated along with our client's requests and successfully executed - all under a tight deadline. I would be happy to work with her again and would certainly recommend her for your retouching needs."
Nordstrom logo "D’Arcy worked with us as a Digital Image Specialist on our Editorial Image team. She’s a Photoshop guru who enjoys collaborating with Art Directors and Designers, and helping them achieve their image Nirvana....D’Arcy brings an abundance of positive and fun energy wherever she goes — and she’s greatly missed here!"

About Me

My love for adjusting images began during high school, when I would spend many happy hours in the darkroom figuring out how to use an object like a spoon to affect light exposure. After graduating from Emerson College with a degree in Television Production, I threw myself into a 7-year career at the ABC NEWS National Bureau in Washington, D.C.. Working with a journalistic legend like Sam Donaldson was exhilarating, and taught me everything about work ethics, professionalism, and truly knowing your craft. But when I got my hands on an early version of Photoshop in the 90's, I was hooked on photo retouching all over again. After that I spent several years honing my skills as a digital production artist at multiple ad agencies before finally narrowing my focus to become a full-time retoucher.

I pride myself on being an excellent communicator, with an emphasis on being a truly active listener, which helps me quickly dial in on my client's vision and needs. I've found that understanding my client's personal style is crucial to a successful working relationship, and I appreciate the "back-and-forth" process of feedback and discussion that is sometimes needed to make an image perfect. I always remain flexible and know that in the end, it's true teamwork that brings great results.

D'Arcy Hyde

No job is too big or too small. I enjoy it all.

On a personal note, I grew up in New Hampshire and Vermont, and after living in Boston, Washington, D.C., Minneapolis and Seattle, I have made my way back to the east coast. I currently live in Brooklyn, with my wife and our menagerie of three dogs and two cats.
