Artwork Photography

 

Our artwork photography service is suitable for various sizes and mediums, including three-dimensional objects, rolled media and a non-invasive technique for fragile items.

We have a dedicated artwork photography studio, conveniently located next to our giclee printing space. Equipped with the latest high-resolution camera sensors, fine art lenses and professional lighting, we can digitise paintings, illustrations and other media up to three meters wide and roll art at any length.

One of the most critical stages in artwork reproductions is origination. With over 15 years of experience, we utilise our skills and specialist equipment to accurately match your originals, paying close attention to the texture, details and hues used in your artwork to give you a digital copy.

All our devices are fully colour-managed, and using proprietary software, we can capture multiple photos of your artwork to create one high-resolution image. Your digital files will have depth, detail and accuracy for reproductions faithful to your original.

We can safely archive your images so you can create giclee prints of your art on-demand. You can be confident that we store your art in a secure location, encrypt all digitised images, and your artwork is covered by specialist insurance while on-site.

All mediums can be photographed in fine detail - including watercolour, oils, acrylics, photographs, canvases, charcoal drawings, pencil, pastel, pen and ink.

Smaller artworks (A2 or less) can also be digitised using our artwork scanning service.

- full-colour management setup
- tone and colour balancing at our studio
- file revisions (if required)
- TIFF version of your artwork (master file)
- JPEG version of your artwork (print-ready file)
- free image archiving
