Print your photos as fine art

You will not believe the quality of these prints. Our service goes further than just sending your file to the printer.

Book your private session. Image preparation and printing.

Work with Jose Aguiar (Mast Photo AIPP) on your prints.

Printer

Our in house printer is prepared to handle only matte fine art paper. If you need something else, we will prepare the images and send to companies we trust.

Image adjustments

Each image is unique and may require specific pos-processing actions. We are experts in these. You can leave the last adjustment with us or be in full control yourself.

Fine retouching

If you require localized image fixes such as face blemishes removal, removal of people or items or anything else, we are here to help. We can advice and do this all very well.

Paper Selection

We have our favourite fine art papers from Canson, Harman Hahnemuhle and Epson Signature. We can advise you on which one goes better for your image or you can select from our samples in the studio.

  • “I printed my APPA entries with Jose, of Aguiar Photography, last year and was so impressed with the process. Jose helped me learn about soft proofing and how to develop my prints for the art paper of my choice. I was thrilled with the 84 I received at the APPAs for one of my portrait entries printed with Aguiar.”
