All raw camera files are edited and prepared for print by Matt Draper. Using professionally created custom profiles and colour-correct monitors, Draper and his printing laboratory produce accurate, exhibition-grade, archival fine art prints.

Each fine art print is made to order and printed on Canson® Infinity Platine Fibre Rag.

Platine Fibre Rag is a fibre-based lustre paper with a 100% cotton rag paper base originally used for platinum printmaking. The latest in microporous coatings are applied to the surface, meaning this traditional darkroom paper can now receive inkjet inks.

The 310gsm paper has a true pure white tone without using optical brighteners that are known to affect longevity of digitally produced images. Platine Fibre Rag has a beautiful 'fine art' feel with a slightly stippled surface, adding a unique and pleasing sparkle to the final print. Its distinctive coating, known as lustre, captures the best qualities from gloss and matte, combining both into one striking finish.

Platine Fibre Rag’s extremely high Dmax and exceptional grey tones make it the product of choice for the more discerning black and white, as well as colour, photographic prints. 

The original fine art printing of ‘Hitchhiker’ was supervised and approved by Matt Draper.
