Our consulting services include the design and implementation of ICC colour managed workflows including custom input and output profiling, quantitative analysis, quality control audits, pre-press and reprographic services, and general photographic workflow management.

Our training services include work-place workshops, project mentoring, and one-on-one tuition in your studio or our studio. An extensive range of public and private courses, workshops, seminars and lectures are also presented each year.

Our image editing, preparation and printing services include working with the finest papers and custom profiles on Epson and HP archival pigment printers to 1625mm (64″) wide by any length. This is not a ‘print on demand’ facility, but a specialist service where you collaborate with us during every stage of your file’s preparation and printing to ensure the result equals, if not exceeds your own expectations.

Our profiling services cover all digital equipment, from ICC and DNG scanner and camera profiles to custom RGB, B&W and CMYK printer profiles with a guaranteed ave. DeltaE2000 < 1.0. Custom variations of each profile are available at no extra charge, for example, balancing Lightness versus Chroma compression, expanded shadow detail, custom white and black points, and other enhancements.

The Canson Certified Master Printer Program (CCMP) is run through Kayell Australia for Canson and is designed to support professional print providers such as Photo Labs, Artists, Museums and Galleries. To be awarded the title ‘Canson Certified Master Printer’ acknowledges that you are capable of rigorously and consistently producing inkjet prints of the highest possible aesthetic and technical quality. The certification program through its demanding adherence to exacting production and quality control standards provides independent acknowledgement of your exemplary craftsmanship and artistic commitment to the fine art of digital print making. We create the certified CCMP printer profiles as well as run the six monthly verification and annual education seminars. The CCMP program is by invitation only. For prerequisites, criteria and more information please see CCMP.

Our scanning and reprographic services include reflective and transmissive works of any size using multi-shot 200 mpx Hasselblad digital cameras to produce non-interpolated true 16bit files to 1.22GB (16352 x 12264 pixels).
