Photographic Reproduction of Artworks and Maps

I offer a photographic reproduction service of artworks and maps for artists, collectors, archives and anyone who has a need for digital copies of physical artworks or documents. Get in touch for more details.

All of the images shown above are by Scottish artist Eric Ritchie. They were photographed for use in gallery catalogues for some recent retrospective exhibitions he staged. They were used both in print and online. Some of these can be seen here.

How it works -

I find that each job is very different and I am always happy to talk to clients about their individual needs. Sometimes works and documents are small enough to be transported to my studio. On other occasions works have to be photographed in situ. In both instances I strive to ensure that my digital reproductions are as close to the original in every way.

My experience working in archives informs my practice so you can be rest assured your works are in good hands.

This was a recent piece of work creating a high resolution copy of a large estate map (1200mm x 900mm). Some areas of the map were faded so the detail was brought out during in post production.

Why -

Clients have their paintings and documents photographed for all manner of reasons. Artists often have paintings digitised for use in exhibition catalogues and publicity material. Sometimes fragile documents such as deeds and maps are digitised so they can be viewed by a wider audience online by people who wouldn’t normally have access to the original.

A digital copy of an item can also be seen as ‘back up’ if the original was ever lost or damaged. These images can also be used for insurance purposes.
