We have a dedicated artwork photography studio, conveniently located next to our giclee printing space. Equipped with a high-resolution 50-megapixel camera, Carl Zeiss lens and professional lighting; we can digitise paintings, illustrations and other media up to 2 meters wide.
One of the most critical stages in the art reproduction process is the origination. With over 15 years experience, we utilise our skills and specialist equipment to accurately match your originals, paying close attention to the texture, details and colours used in your artwork to give you a virtual copy.
Using our professional photography service means you can safely archive your images with us and create giclee prints of your art as and when you choose. You can be confident in the knowledge that we store your art in a secure location, encrypt all digitised images and insure your artwork at our studio.
All types of media can be photographed in fine detail - including watercolour, oils, acrylics, photographs, canvases, charcoal drawings, pencil, pastel, pen and ink.
Framed works that are displayed under glass are shot using a particular lighting layout that will eliminate any reflection.
