Campbell Templeton, Senior Art Director, Freelance - "Awesome retoucher. Did all the location photography or Mazda J12. He can be a studio of one, or have a crew of two or three guys for big projects with tight deadlines. Check him out if you know what’s good for you."
Peter Modaffari, Senior Retouch Artist, Hogarth Worldwide/WPP - "Working with GTM on quite a few of their Mazda projects and let me just say Kevin what wonderful work you do - the best of the best. I salute. The MX5 stuff is killer with great detail to color and lighting (especially the 3/4 view rear close up of the door/drivers seat capturing the mood late afternoon/dusk with all the different attributes /nuances of the Soul Red paint) - my favorite piece!"
Brian Hillner, Manager | Business Development Design & Consulting, Bunkspeed - "Kevin's superlative ability to professionally retouch photographs and 3D renderings is unmatched. He has an innate sense of light that can't be taught and knows exactly what features to emphasize to achieve maximum photorealistic quality. Definitely the best retoucher I've ever seen and will gladly work with him any chance I get!"
Kevin Mitchell, Associate Creative Director, Team One - "Kevin provided great retouching and was very responsive throughout the process."

Carl Seibert, Executive Creative Director, RTT - "I cant say enough about how great Kevin is as both a professional and an artist. He was a punctual, patient team player who added tremendous value to all the projects we brought him on to support. I have not worked with a better retoucher in the automotive space and think he is arguably the best in his field. I will be more than happy to elaborate if you require more details."
Linda Hardwick, Sr. Art Producer / Art Buyer, RPA - "Kevin is like a wonderful secret that you end up sharing with everyone. He is fast, and committed to providing quality results. When we needed him on set for a job - he was extremely helpful in helping us make creative decisions, as well as providing quality work in difficult working conditions."

Ben Sager, Photographer - “I just wanted to thank you for your time looking over my photos. It was so valuable hearing and seeing your point of view, and many of the ideas you suggested I did in fact implement. The client was stoked on the images!”

Bill Cash, Photographer - "Kevin Buckley is brilliant to work with! He is a team player on every project! He is always able to take direction and translate my vision to make the images come alive! Not only can he interpret my vision, but he brings his own set of artistic skills and his own perspective to every image. The thing I like best about Kevin is that he does not do the obvious, he pushes through and makes the images his own. I appreciate this very much. Many thanks for his hard work and many hours with me!"
Patrick Sheridan, Senior Art Director, McCormick Company - "I like to use Kevin because he is both technically skilled and creatively skilled. I can always count on Kevin to bring more to the project than what I ask him to do. He has a great eye for detail. Kevin is great with deadlines. In fact, he is usually early. And regardless of money the quality or work never changes."

His meticulous attention to detail and ability to work magic with a photograph is second to none. I continue to rely on Kevin for digital touch up and strongly endorse his work."
Elijah May, VP of Interactive, AGBeat - "Kevin has that rare combination of exceptional creative ability and real entrepreneurial drive. He is regarded internationally, and yet grounded in a way that few true artists are. Capable of getting a job done brilliantly and on time, he is a pleasure both to work with and know."
