With over 20 years experience in creating stunning images for advertising, packaging and design we can help you with your creative retouching needs. From compositing the most complex combination of supplied images to helping plan a controlled shoot we’re there to help. We can help you with processing from RAW files, to clean ups and grades and can supply a file that best suits your intended use and output.


3D computer generated imagery allows you to build objects that don’t exist and render them off either as a photo real still image or animation using different environments and lighting set ups much the same as real photography. With a great deal of experience in photography and 3D, we specialise in creating photorealistic product renders for packaging and advertising imagery.


With a keen appreciation of photography we understand what is needed in terms of photography to allow the most effective retouch possible and we’ll happily discuss the most suitable way of shooting with your photographer. We can carry out ‘technical build’ shots to gain elements for incorporating into retouching or go out into the field to obtain the shots you need.

A Little History

With over 20 years experience in the world of advertising imagery and design, along with producing numerous award winning images, Kevin Hyde at Imagecraft is at the forefront of digital image production. Whether it's a photographic, retouched, illustrative or a 3D based image, give us a call to discuss your next project. Originally from a prepress and scanning background, I completed my qualifications in 1999. This invaluable knowledge formed a solid understanding going forward, and a move to London led a shift into the advertising, FMCG packaging and design environments. After freelancing in London for three years, with a year managing a large corporate design studio, I returned to New Zealand in 2003. I spent some time contracting before moving into freelance retouching in 2005. I spent the next few years as a freelance retoucher for various creative agencies and photographers and in 2008 started using 3D modelling software for creative and product rendering purposes. Throughout my career I have worked in many different areas of the industry. This enables me to offer high-end retouching and 3D modelling and rendering skills along with specialist production knowledge related to all areas of print including FMCG packaging design; and general design through to finished art. With a broad understanding of advertising, photography and communication medias I bring a wealth of experience to any project and look forward to creating many more great images!
