What is a capture?
For artists looking for high resolution image files, we offer professional grade, digital photography of artwork known in the industry as a "Capture", which is safer than scanning and produces more accurate reproductions of paintings, drawings and other fine art.
Using our Hasselblad Multishot camera and professional lighting studio, we produce high quality, balanced photographs of your work, with accurate shadow/highlight detail and overall crystal clear sharpness and fidelity.

-USB or CD transfers are available upon request (additional fees apply).
If your Original is Already Framed:
We recommend taking originals out of frames/from behind glass before bringing them in for capture when possible, to avoid losing any image size, or compromising the image with dust/dirt, old or scratched glass, or shadows from mattes/deep frames.
If you do not feel comfortable removing the original yourself, we can remove & refit the original for a fee of $15 (this service may extend the time it takes to get your original back, depending on our workload or the complexity of the fitting).
