Photography is the first step to creating the perfect print from original artwork.
When creating any type of print-based on an original artwork high-quality photography is essential.
We offer both high-quality photography and colour matching, for either printmaking or to archive your work.
Detailed image capture up to 1248 Mega Pixels
Colour matching to original artwork
High-resolution digital files to print any size
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.
