Art & Craft Photography

 

Your art deserves great photography.  Fine images enhance the value and appeal not only of your work, but also of you as an artist.  Great images also help sell your art, making quality photography a worthwhile investment.

 

We can photograph you and your work in our studio, at your studio or on location.  Our studio is fully equipped to photograph just about any kind of art including sculpture, paintings, furniture, glass and jewelry.  We have the equipment and expertise to make images that best show your work.  We can also shoot work at your studio or that is installed on location.  In either case, we bring our studio to you.  And while in your studio, we can make portraits of you, from basic headshots to environmental portraits of you at work.

 

Most photography is done with a 50 megapixel camera, which means you get large, high-quality files for the best output.  After photographing your work, we optimize the images in the digital darkroom.  This includes adjusting perspective, color correction,

and anything else needed to make a great image.  We then create a set of files that include ones optimized for the web, optimized for print use, that meet ZAPP specifications, and full-sized TIFF files for making Giclee prints.  You are assigned unlimited, perpetual usage rights to all images.  We can also create just about anything you might need to promote and sell your work including postcards, folding notecards, display prints, printed portfolios, fine-art books and more.

 

Art work can be photographed by the piece starting at $50 for one view of smaller, simpler work, or by the hour, starting at $150, for larger, more complex pieces.  If you have a number of pieces, then the hourly rate can significantly reduce cost for each piece or view.  Shooting in your studio or on location starts at $300.  Post processing and file preparation starts at $75 for a smaller number of images.  And finally, we offer a package for photography at your studio.  For $995, you get up to 6 hours of photography of your work, portraits of you, and images of you at work in the studio and a complete set of files.  All post processing and file prep is included. This gives you a complete body of work and saves you the time, effort and risk of transporting your work.
