Good photography offers the first impression of your art and your professionalism.
Artists are often required to submit work digitally for exhibitions, when applying for grants, speaker profiles or public profile pages.
However, we often see wonderful artwork represented by images that are shot in poor lighting conditions, messy environments AND distorted artwork.
A good photograph of your work can mean the difference between being accepted to a show, or winning the favours of an important client or gallery director.

What does our Service include?
Our Service Incudes
A high resolution digital image of your artwork suitable
for high quality giclée prints
It also includes
A low resolution watermarked digital image suitable
for use on Social Media.
We also add-on
We embed the artist copyright metadata details into the digital file. This can help to prevent image theft.
We can supply you with 3 finished samples so you can chose which paper you want to use for your giclée prints.
How much does it cost?
Not as much as you might think!
I think we’ve covered everything, but just in case . . .
What's the turnaround?
We aim to turn the artwork photography around in 2-3 days but this can depend what other work we have scheduled into the studio diary. If the work is urgent give us a call and we’ll try to oblige.
How do you match the colours?
All artwork photographs are colour profiled on a calibrated monitor and printer to ensure accurate results everytime.
What exactly is a Giclée print?
Giclée is a French term meaning “to spray”, which is exactly how an inkjet printer works and how Giclée prints are usually produced.
ALSO: The digital file of the artwork must be at least 300 dpi. The printer must be a wide format printer and use at least 8 pigment based ink cartridges, not dye based. Finally, the speciality paper should be designated as museum archival paper.
What's the difference between a print and a GICLÉE print?
Quite simply, the quality of the Giclée print is far superior.
What paper and inks do you use?
We mainly use 3 non-glossy museum archival artist papers; Museum Heritage 310 gsm, Gallery Etching 310 gsm and Photo Art Silk 290 gsm. Each paper has been approved by the Fine Art Trade Guild and meets print standards.
Our wide format printer uses a 12 ink Giclée system using Premium Quality LUCIA pigment inks. This offers accurate colour reproduction and enhanced print longevity.
Can you print copies for me?
Of course we can. We store the digital file of your artwork so we are able to print from it whenever you request.
* Note: The digital file is owned by you and we only print when instructed to do so.
Do you only photograph paintings?
No, we photograph all types of media including watercolour, oils, acrylics, photographs, canvases, charcoal drawings, pencil, pastel, pen and ink. We also photograph sculpture, ceramics and metalwork pieces.

One of the best investments any artist can make.

Why use JMW Imaging?
We are a small family run photography studio, and we love to print!
We have a number of photographic qualification between us and printed each of the successful panels ourselves. So we know a little about using the best papers and finest inks to attain the highest professional standards.
We also know how valuable your art is and what it means to you. So it goes without saying, that any reproductions must also reach the same high standard you put into your original piece and that means helping you chose the right materials to represent your artwork.
Whatever your chosen medium, we can record it and reproduce it for you.
