I offer photography of paintings, drawings and other 2D media for reproduction, for artists, galleries and publishers. All work is carried out to exacting standards with high quality optics and a fully coloured managed workflow. Special techniques for dealing with highly reflective surfaces are available and high resolution composite files can be created when large format output is required. Please get in touch with your requirements or visit the Q&A page for more information.

Collage by Kristjana S Williams, lit as for relief sculpture to reveal form in the frame surround and texture in the collage elements.

High quality optics enable extremely fine resolution of details in the image file. Artwork by Kristjana S Williams.

This image of a large and highly detailed map was created by working across the original to create several exposures; these were joined seamlessly in computer to produce a very high resolution composite image, in order to create a large reproduction print. The enlarged section of the church on the right will give an idea of the level of detail which can be resolved with this technique.

This large print by Piers Bourke contained four alternating planes which reflected the light in less predictable ways, compared with straight flat copy; the solution was to light and photograph each plane separately and then create a composite digital file so that all planes were represented accurately and flare-free.
