"Grapes" by Barrington, 20" x 24", oil on canvas.

Properly photographing flat artwork isn't as easy as you might think. Based on experience, we can offer the following advice:

  • Always hire a professional that specializes in photographing artwork. A professional will have the proper equipment and color corrected lighting to produce accurate representations of your work.
  • When selecting a photographer, ask to see examples of files they've produced for previous clients. Just because someone is an excellent wedding photographer, doesn't mean they can shoot artwork properly.
  • Flat artwork should be photographed with no "hot spots" or reflections.
  • If possible, have your artwork photographed without a frame. Framing should not be included in your files unless the frame itself is actually a part of the art.
  • To see current pricing for fine art photography, giclee prints, and scanning, see the Price Lists page.
