John has been shooting my artwork since 2006. It's pretty straight forward -- he takes great photos. Clear and sharp pics that yield huge digital files. He's easy to work with and very accommodating. I definitely recommend using Artbot for any photographic services. Bottom line -- if you need artwork photographed -- email John.Aug 2, 2011
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Artwork reproduction is a specialized field, and while many artists start out by photographing their own artwork, taking it to a professional not only saves many hours of frustration (why doesn't it look like the original), it also gives you the best recording of your work possible. This can be the difference in getting into the next show or juried competition, and provides a solid platform from which to do derivative work or fine art printing. While there are several modern digital platforms by which artwork can be captured, the way it is shot determines how accurate a capture can be to the original source. While no platform can see 100% what the human eye sees, by using museum grade imaging practices artwork can be rendered to very exacting standards on several types of camera systems. Ask your photographer what they use and why, and compare.
