OUR PHOTOGRAPHY SERVICES
We will take a high-resolution photograph with our digital camera of your original artwork that you can use to print with us in any size you want. We will also store this file for you so you can print from it with us now and in the future. We will also supply you with a 300dpi A4 size image file which you can use for websites, advertising, promotional materials etc. The copyright for these photographs remains with us.
We will take a high-resolution photograph with our digital camera of your original artwork and supply you with the raw digital file. We make no claim on the copyright of these images.
If you have paid for copyrighted photography and then decide you would like the high-res files you can pay the difference to get copyright-free photography, and we will supply you with the raw files.
Our colour matching service is charged by the half-hour. If we have photographed your original artwork, we can supply you with a test strip or A4 print and you can then decide if you want to go ahead with colour matching. We can colour match your original artwork or if you have digital files, we can print test strips and make adjustments to the files to alter the printed output.
Our in-house camera is based on a large-format Toyo camera. This is combined with the latest scan back which has up to 1248 MPixels resolution and captures every pixel in three colours using complex algorithms to develop the raw image. This maintains the subtle variations of colour, tone gradations, and the finest detailed brush strokes or paper texture. It stops the merging tones and colours and the detail becoming pixilated. The resulting prints are punchy and full of original detail.
All artwork left at our studio is left at the artist's own risk. Insurance on valuable items is the artist's responsibility to organise.
