FINE-ART REPRODUCTIONS - Optimised photography and fine-art reproduction
Photography/Origination for prints up to A2/24x16 inches (61x41.5cm) - £100 per original. The digital proof will be sent to you by email for approval.
Please note – Photographing original art for reproduction is part science, part art.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PRODUCE AN EXACT REPLICA OF AN ORIGINAL, painted e.g. on canvas with oil, acrylic or watercolour, and expect it to look identical on digital art paper. It won’t. But I CAN produce a very good likeness which will be a very good version of the original and viewed in isolation will be a very saleable and attractive print in its own right.
IF YOU WISH TO MAKE YOUR OWN ARRANGEMENTS FOR PRINTING THAT IS ALSO POSSIBLE. In that case I would charge a flat fee of £100 per picture to photograph your original and will deliver the optimised high-resolution digital file to yourself for you to make your own printing arrangements. While I am happy to do this, I will not produce a proof – there is no point as the printing will be done elsewhere. Once the optimised digital file is delivered I can take no responsibility for the final print. The post-production of my images is set up for my own printing system and I have no control over someone else’s system. I would also advise tha.t you will get none of the ‘care and control’ of the final image from a high-street printer that you would get from me. You will just get a machine print which may or may not be what you are expecting. You get what you pay for!

Clients' original artwork may be in my studio for 7-10 days while re-framing, photographic reproduction, proofing etc is done before returning the work to the client.
I do not have any insurance to cover loss or damage to clients' artwork, so the work is accepted on the basis that myself and Stephen Lee Mountain Photography accept no liability whatsoever for loss or damage to clients' original work.
Although all reasonable care is taken of the work while under my care and control, if you value your originals you should obtain your own insurance against loss or damage.
On delivering the work to my studio you will be asked to sign a disclaimer to that effect as well as specifying the value for which you have the artwork insured.
Please note: I reserve the right to make one additional copy of my reproduction work studio display as an example of the quality of the work I can provide.
