National Magazine Photo Shoot On Art Restoration

A nationally distributed-online and in-print magazine is featuring Fine Art Conservation Laboratories for the painting restoration of a high profile historical painting (which will, for the time, remain nameless… sorry). The photographer thought he would grab a couple of quick shots and be out of our hair in 30 minutes but was so stimulated by our lab, our processes and the projects that he morphed into a fashion photographer that couldn’t get enough shots over a 2 1/2 hour shooting session.

He was actually very entertaining as he expressed approval for the photo posing set ups and that we were able to follow his coaching. The editors initially said they wanted to take a couple of photographs and I think it turned into a couple of hundred.

I think you’ll find both the artwork and it’s story entertaining and interesting. When it’s appropriate and we get the approval we will let you know…

A different subject, we had a few nice testimonials that clients wanted to share on video. So, those will be coming up soon. Here is the link to a very nice lady relieved to have saved her precious wedding memory:
