Hi! I'm Nina

After specialising in design and fashion photography, I began my career in London.

During this time, I was using my knowledge in retouching to work on my own images.

However, when I started producing, I understood that they were actually two different fields.
And one person cannot do it all!

Gradually, and with a little help from my mentors, my focus shifted to only retouching work.

As a designer, I obsess over perfect colour grading and meticulously correct image details. It just made sense that I made retouching my full time job.

Over time, I built a client base, and eventually, I relocated to the serene South West of France, where I founded Algia Studio.

Here, surrounded by nature, I find daily inspiration for an honest and healthy approach to fashion photography.

What our clients say:

I’ve been working with Nina (and now Algia) since the beginning of my career, 5 years ago. From day one, I felt super comfortable working with her!

Her attentive listening and personalised guidance really helped me get my work to the next level. She always delivers on time, even when deadlines are tight, and her natural finish is everything. I can’t recommend her enough.

Juli Godoy

I had the pleasure of working with Algia Studio on a many projects (including publications like Vogue Spain and L’officiel Baltics) and I am always incredibly impressed with their retouching skills and attention to detail.

It is just such a flawless process. For me retouching is the cherry on the cake.
It’s important to find a retoucher who can understand your style and needs and I most certainly found mine in Algia Studio.

Marta Literska

I’ve worked with Algia Studio countless times now and every time they consistently exceed expectations!

Nina is an incredible retoucher. I cannot say enough good about her. She has such a beautiful light touch and does exactly what you want. Not only is she amicable but she delivers in such a very reasonable period of time.

Do yourself a favor and work with her!
