Photograph or Scan?
People often ask me what the difference between a photograph and a scan is. My photography setup produces a sharp image with no glare from the scan bed, large artworks can be taken in one shot with no stitching required and I can change my lighting according to what suits the artwork medium best. Copystand provides true colour and perfectly lit high resolution photographs to represent artworks.
File Type and Storage
I can provide a variety of file types but generally provide two sets of jpegs, one set suitable for print and one set suitable for web. Your high resolution images are stored using a safe backup system just in case you misplace them.
Each artist has different requirements, which is why I don’t have a price list on my website. Get in touch and I am happy to give you a quote. This quote will reflect the cost of my specialist photographic set-up, the number of artworks to be photographed and the amount of post-production time required. I endeavour to keep prices as low as possible and the more artworks that are photographed at once, the lower the price per artwork.
I can organise giclée prints for you on a selection of archival specialist paper. I don’t have a printer in my studio but my colour calibrated set up ensures that the files I send to the print company means that you will receive high quality correct colour prints.
Artwork photography is an art in itself which I am proud to say Copystand has mastered. Copystand provides artists, galleries and publishers with high quality reproduction photographs which can be used for catalogues, postcards, illustrated books, websites, etc.
I know how important it is for artists to have excellent archival photographs of their artworks, I am trained in Fine Art and have always used photography in my own work which I continue do. For many years, I have worked for other artists and galleries and now for ModernPrints.co.uk who I share my studio with.
