Artists Needing New Jury Images

Shows are cancelling or rescheduling, but applications still have to be submitted. And for some artists that means needing new images. So for anyone hiring me to photograph their artwork or improve their images, I'll do 50% when the job is finished and you can pay the balance when you can afford it, no matter how long it takes, and you can even pay me off incrementally.Check out the examples of my art photography:…See More

"They need to be photographed with a high enough resolution camera (height and width in pixels) so that the file can be printed. Rule of thumb is 300 pixels per inch. That translates to 2400x3000 pixels for a high quality 8x10 print. If they are to…"

I scored a "1" at the Krasl Jury

Posted on March 1, 2018 at 7:00pm 89 Comments

Years ago I was interviewing a show…
