Mike Bessler presents "Photograph and Edit your artwork"

This presentation is designed for groups such as art leagues who have members that would like to copy their artwork themselves.  It can also be customised for a one on one lesson.

Mike will go through how to take a photo of your own artwork using your camera and common, free/inexpensive lighting techniques. Then he will show you how to do minor edits of this photo in Lightroom to produce an excellent copy. You should be able to print and sell these giclee's and/or use these digital negatives on your website.

Bring your camera and your artwork to copy.

Business/Corporate Photographic and Technical Consulting

This service is for businesses that need photographic and/or technical expertise.  I have been in the photographic and computer business for over 35 years. 

One example of this service is where I set up multiple professional studios for a cabinet manufacturer to create images of their products for ads and in-house catalogues, some products as large as 10 feet high by 12 feet wide and some as small as an inch.

I will work with you on your specific needs.
