Semaphore is a Los Angeles-based retouch studio founded by Rene Hallen.

Rene grew up in Germany, worked for 17 years in Paris and today lives with his family in LA. He began his professional career as an analogue printer in B/W and color for a renowned fine art gallery in Paris and started to develop his digital retouch skills 15 years ago.

After many years of collaboration, Rene chose to partner up with a leading, prestigious retouch studio in Paris, La Souris, to build an LA-based company comprised of a team of high-end digital artists who are masters of retouch in various, complementary fields.

We count as our clients companies such as Toyota, Peugeot, Mercedes, Nissan, Ford, Renault, Lexus, Chevrolet, Audi, BMW, Tesla, Porsche, Volvo, Aston Martin, Elisabeth Arden, Garnier, Cartier, Kenzo, John Lewis, Adidas, Nike, Veuve Clicquot, Chandon, Evian, Disney and many international publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Variety, W, The Hollywood Reporter, Wallpaper, T-Mag, Marie Claire, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, and New York Magazine.

The Semaphore team is looking forward to providing you the one-stop service your project deserves.
