About Us

The aim of The Fine Art Print Company is to produce exceptional quality prints and photographs, and to develop dynamic and mutually beneficial relationships with the creative individuals and organisations we work with.

With the help of our clients and friends we have developed creative ideas and collaborative projects which extend far beyond our walls. We always keep an eye out for interesting and challenging ideas outside the central remit of the studio and have a growing list of achievements which contribute both to our business and to the vitality of the art scene in Bristol and beyond.

Please contact us about anything we haven’t mentioned which interests you about us, and do make an appointment to come and visit us at our studio to talk about your projects.

Dunstan has considerable experience working as a freelance documentary photographer and has participated in and co-produced several exhibitions.

From 2006 Dunstan worked predominantly on developing and managing a fine art digital reproduction service, from photography to final print, in Bristol. Through this work he built up a comprehensive knowledge of digital print technology, colour management and research in to archival quality inks and papers. He is highly skilled in using advanced software to colour manage and control image quality, often working directly with artists to achieve the final proof. His success and renown as a talented fine art printer lies in his fastidious approach to his work and attention to detail, his own artistic skill and highly developed knowledge of tools and materials.

In her early career she worked with English Heritage and The National Trust documenting architecture and artworks of national importance for their digital archives. She went on to work with the Northcott Theatre as a set and publication photographer for touring productions.

In 2015 Sophia embarked on a commission to document Cordon Crossley’s life works for his biography.
