Today it’s called IPS

We called it ‘photography’ In an era before digital, shooting on negatives had a positive side, we knew what customers wanted. When customers booked their shoots, they told us what they wanted. Customers did not want negatives, they wanted prints, they wanted giant framed canvases on their walls. Shoot and Burn We sold them what they really wanted. It was easy back then, that was simply how it was done. The digital era stole that process from many photographers. Some togs felt that they could make fast money selling digital files, boom, bang, cash in hand. It was all ’shoot and burn’, no time was wasted sitting chatting to people about which images to print, what was the point, these photographers thought clients just want…

Canvas Print : The Original

Canvas Print – stretched on a 20mm or 40mm stretcher frame The good old days: Available from Studio22 for over 20 years, the canvas has been through a few changes. The early canvas was created from a genuine photographic print (the good old chemical process). The thin top layer of the photograph was removed with great skill and placed over a sheet of canvas. This went through a bonding process and once dry, the print was coated and stretched or framed.

Instagram and other photography Apps.

I do not know anyone with a smartphone who is not using Instagram, Hipstamatic, Snapseed, Pixlromatic and at least one other awesome photography App to share what they see. Sure, I am in the image industry so I will be surrounded my images and people who love them as much as I do but I can see it is reaching far further. These Apps make it so fast and easy to post a really cool image with an ‘arty’ twist, it just makes you want to use your phone to share images when words will take too long (Sure, I capture it on my DSLR too but later I am just not that inspired and may not share). The concept of sharing “what you see,…

The photo lab that delivers

Studio22 delivers in the true sense of the word. Photographers make money when they are out taking photographs or shooting  in a studio. The more time spent driving to collect prints or products, the less time you are shooting and billing for your time. Sure, there are also photographers who work full-time and shoot afterhours, they too cannot always find the time to get to the lab. For this reason, Studio22 has been running a very successful delivery service to many areas across Cape Town. Collecting and delivering to studio’s, offices and homes : From Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Durbanville, Bellville, Edgemead, Constantia, Rondebosch, Pinelands, Parklands , Montague Gardens, Milnerton, Epping Industria, Sea Point to the City bowl. The big question: “What does it cost?” This service is free to all collections…
