That's awful. Maybe you could try to show your portfolio to another member of management? It might not do any good because you have already been rejected, but if your work is so excellent that someone automatically thinks that it has been photoshopped then someone there has to appreciate it. Good luck, OP. Art is a beautiful thing.

Because photoshop can be misleading. Some photoshop changes the picture so much it looks nothing like the original photo. I personally think that defeats the soul purpose of taking a photo. Don't get me wrong I've messed around with photoshop and I've seen some really cool and amazing photoshop. But I personally think the original shot is what should make the photo and maybe some light edits to enhance. Not so much photoshop that you can't even tell what the original photo looked like. But that's me personally I am in no way an expert or anything.

It absolutely sucks not being able to get the job you want, but frankly if the person looking at the photos is in the business and can't tell the difference between real and Photoshop then he's clearly not someone you want to work under. You can likely find something better.

People don't usually refer to their head shots as 'nature' portfolios so I'm guessing they were actually nature shots and not portraits. Of course maybe the problem was that she was hot and the interviewer didn't really look at the pictures at all. *your breasts look photoshopped in this portrait* OP: those are cantaloupes

People are way too quick to call something Photoshopped now days. I mean yes it is a lot but some people say that and don't have a clue either way. You would think a guy who works in that field could distinguish Photoshoped work from not.

You should have presented your original RAW files to prove the photos aren't heavily retouched. Dream photography is very hard. Not only do you have to travel around the world, you have to go to outer space, and time travel to the future and the past. I wish you could have gotten a shot of me rowing for the gold medal for Finland. I was looking pretty hot.

#12, yes! In my dream, Olympic rowing included the rules of Battle Boats, so my oars were tipped with bayonets. I was able to knock out those cheesy Swiss and ruin the watches and chocolate they were carrying onboard. Good thing I woke up before the Olympic officials found out I've never been to Finland or have any Finnish heritage, and stripped me of my medal.

13 was close, it would be 'Che sera sera' in Italian or 'Que sera sera' for the Spanish way. Neither are grammatically correct in any language and just adopted by people after it was made up for a song by a couple of English speaking song writers.
