Mitch Rossow
Fine Art Documentation Photography

Specialized oil painting photography for artists, galleries and collectors. Artwork faithfully reproduced with no glare & accurate color at affordable prices.

I produce high resolution images of art work suitable for use on websites and email, magazine articles & ads, prints, or any other use of the images. The images are color corrected with even lighting across the entire surface. I use the latest digital technology and professional equipment for accurate reproduction.

As an artist, it is crucial to have good images of your work for marketing & press, to share with existing collectors and as a record for yourself. After all, once you sell a piece, it is no longer available to inform you about your progress or for marketing & press coverage.

As a collector, images of the works you hold are important for inventory and insurance purposes and to aid you in sharing works with institutions and individuals.

Though Oil Painting Photography makes up the majority of my work, I also photograph watercolors, acrylics, drawings and other 2-dimensional art. Oil paintings are the most difficult to photograph because of the richness of the color and the glare, so artists turn to me to handle them. However, my lighting process and high resolution files are still in demand for all types of artwork documentation.
