I spent the morning with venerable wildlife artist Mr Bruce Pearson, shooting the large format images for his incredibly beautiful, upcoming book on Albatrosses. I've been scanning the small and medium sized work on my Heidelberg and Microtek machines for Bruces' publisher, Langford Press. However, there were a handful of paintings too large to fit on any scanner (even our A1 Cruse flat-bed scanner) but which required the best possible level of capture. I have an extensive range of high-end facilities and expertise at my disposal, and can capture ANY type of artwork with an exceedingly high degree of sophistication.

We shot Bruce's images using a medium format camera with a 60 megapixel digital back.

I'll be back in the studio next Monday to shoot a further 10 pieces of work by a well known Chinese artist which is going to be turned into a series of elaborate editioned woodcuts by James Hill at St Barnabas Press.
