Fine Art Documentation is a service that captures accurate representations of artworks using high-resolution cameras, lighting, and post-production software. We document paintings, sculptures, and installations for galleries, museums, collectors, and artists. We provide clients with high-resolution digital images (TIFF JPEG files) shot with a 51MP camera and studio lighting. Our services have flat rates based on the type of artwork and location, as well as additional services such as advanced retouching, product photography and custom printing and framing. We also offer student discounts and can work with clients at our studio in Harlem or on location. The final images are delivered via digital download in Adobe RGB 1998 color space. The provided images are ready to be used for reproduction printing, book printing, portfolios, applications and press.
We aim to keep our prices low to provide artists with ability to document their work regardless of the stage of their career.
Clients have the choice to either drop off and pick up their artwork at our studio in Harlem or have us come to their studio for the shoot. If opting for the latter, ensure there is enough room around the artwork for lighting. Most works can be photographed while still in their frames, and a white seemless background can be provided for sculptures. Keep in mind that a $100 transportation fee will be added to the cost of the shoot, here is a $200 minimum for on-site shoots. Retouching and post production may require a fee. There is no setup fee or minimums for shoots at our Harlem studio.
