Photography of fine art paintings for the Pubic Catalogue Foundation

The Public Catalogue Foundation is a registered charity based in Covent Garden, London. It was set up to photograph and record all oil, acrylic and tempera paintings in publicly owned collections in the UK.

Dave has worked with the Public Catalogue Foundation photographing more than a thousand paintings for the Dorset and National Trust
Catalogues .

Using techniques developed in the production of this work ensures colour and density faithful to the original with an emphasis on speedy and efficient workflow.

It is normally possible to photograph paintings without removing from display and with minimal intrusion. This method means pictures do not need to be removed from staircases and can also be taken from high on a wall. This technique also ensures lighting and equipment is kept to to the bare minimum.
