Digitising artworks is becoming increasingly important, for online visibility, documentation and archives. Especially for museums and galleries, to aid distribution and meet contemporary cultural developments.

All artwork deserves to be shown at its very best, to as wide an audience as possible. High quality images in printed catalogs, brochures or on websites increase opportunities for exposure, which is good for the artist, good for the gallery or venue and good for audiences who may otherwise not get to see it. Good photography is vital – it is as important as using the right materials, so is one of the best investments any artist can make.

Imagine

Artists –

  • your artworks captured in true colours, showing all the texture, fine detail and subtle nuances of your creativity
  • an accurate record to keep or display long after the original has sold, reaching an ever wider audience
  • gaining more exposure, opening up new opportunities

Showcasing your best work helps increase your profile and gain more sales. Good artwork needs good photography. To maintain an accurate record, enhance reputation and increase new opportunities.

Galleries & museums –

your most treasured artworks, objects and artefacts can be enjoyed by more visitors than ever before by displaying good quality images on your website. From the smallest fossils to life-size objects, each can be captured to show their true textures and surfaces with skilful use of lighting.

Make your collections more accessible than ever by digitising.

Curators & commissioners

ensure your projects are all documented. Good quality images will have more impact when used for funding applications, publicity, catalogues, further research and development whilst also helping to reach wider audiences. Exhibitions and arts events by their very nature tend to be temporary – ensure yours will live for longer.
