My name is James, I work with artists in Bristol to reproduce and document works of art. These artwork photographs can be used for brochures,  on your website, or for making print editions of your work for sale. I’ve included some information below and some questions to ask your photographer to ensure you get the best reproductions possible.

If you have any further questions, please do feel free to contact me at the bottom of the page.

Why would an Artist choose to reproduce their work?

There are a number of reasons to reproduce your artwork:

Marketing Opportunity – Once your art has been photographed or reproduced you can add these images to your website, brochures and other marketing materials.
Exhibitions – Images can be used for the exhibition brochure to further increase awareness of your work.
Limited Editions – If you want to control the number of prints made you can do this with your reproductions.
Presentations – Do you talk about your work? Having high-quality and accurate images of your work for projections is a must.
Press Releases – Being able to show your work is just as important as talking about it.
Prints – In order to print your artwork you will need high-quality artwork photographs.

What’s involved?

The process is very straightforward. It begins with a short talk about your work and your requirements. Once I know these I can give you an accurate pricing. If you choose to accept we book in a date to make the images.

Depending on your artwork, I will either visit your studio or you can bring your work to my studio. Once the images are made you will be emailed sample images to ensure you are happy with them. Once you agree you are pleased with the images I will make available the images in both high and low resolution for you to download.

An invoice will be raised and emailed to you. If you were happy with the service you can leave me a review.

Will the colours match my artwork?

Ensuring colour consistently is a complicated process but in short it is possible to be very accurate. For a longer technical explanation see below.

Photographing Art for the internet

While I use a calibrated monitor and calibration equipment to ensure that the reproduction of your work is as a close as possible, you have to keep in mind that every single monitor is different and thus displays slightly different colours. This means that your artwork viewed on an un-calibrated monitor will look slightly different. There is no way around this. The best practice is to match your artwork as best as possible on a calibrated system. Newer devices including phones and tablets do generally offer more accurate colour rendition than old monitors and TV’s.

Photographing Art for print

The same process as above applies to photographing Art for print. Except there are differences in printing. Different paper types have different characteristics in terms of brightness and surface. Matt papers decrease contrast while glossy paper increases contrast. The printer used will also need to be calibrated. The majority of professional print businesses will have a calibrated system but it is a very good idea to print samples first as calibration standards can vary.

Ownership: What is a photographer entitled to do with images of your artwork?

UK law states that:

“Under law, it is the photographer who will own copyright on any photos he/she has taken, with the following exceptions:

  • If the photographer is an employee of the company the photos are taken for, or is an employee of a company instructed to take the photos, the photographer will be acting on behalf of his/her employer, and the company the photographer works for will own the copyright.
  • If there is an agreement that assigns copyright to another party.

In all other cases, the photographer will retain the copyright, if the photographer has been paid for his work, the payment will be for the photographer’s time and typically an allocated number of prints. The copyright to the photos will remain with the photographer, and therefore any reproduction without permission would be an infringement of copyright.”

I will never sell any images of your Art. With your permission, I may use the images for my marketing but will always credit you properly. Always check with your photographer about what rights you are giving them by asking them to photograph your artwork.
