Gary and Bob had been producing giclée prints 2 years previously in 2003, for another company. That’s 15 years experience of producing stunning fine art gicleé prints.
Gary hails from East London, while Bob’s roots are firmly in Suffolk around the Sudbury area. However, both have been living in Cambridgeshire for longer than they care to remember now, and the little company they started back in 2005 has grown to achieve an enviable reputation in the local art world and beyond. Both are very approachable and enjoy nothing more than talking giclée print and framing.
We asked a few questions to find out more about what makes this local business tick…
What makes your company unique?
PhotoART GB is Cambridge’s Premier Giclée Print Provider, trusted by many local and national artists and photographers to produce stunning fine art prints of their work. Having been producing giclée prints for well over a decade now we have built an enviable reputation based on the knowledge and experience gained over the years working with many talented artists.
This knowledge has been passed on to artists and photographers in the form of Gary’s book, released last year, titled ‘Van Gogh Died Broke (but you don’t have to)’. This book leads the artist or photographer through the complete giclée process, from finding the perfect print partner through to choosing which paper to have your prints produced on and then on to marketing and selling your prints.
What do you love about working in Cambridgeshire?
Apart from the journey in to work, which can be stunning as the sun rises over the Cambridgeshire countryside, the best thing about working in Cambridgeshire is the sheer wealth of talented artists that are also living in the county. There’s no better time to appreciate this than July’s Cambridge Open Studios events. Amazing original art on show with the chance to meet the people that produce it, quite often in their own studios too.
Where is your favourite place to visit in East Anglia?
From Gary’s point of view you can’t beat a day beside the seaside in Southwold. The unique layout of this Suffolk coastal town separates the centre from the seafront. There really is something for everyone in Southwold, from the Pier to the Fish ‘n’ Chip shops, from the Beach Huts to the freshly brewed Adnams beer, from the beach to the open spaces of Gun Hill and the commanding views across the sea. It’s not only great to visit in the summer either, there’s nothing quite like a bracing walk along the seafront on a winters day… with a stop off for a nice coffee to warm you up!
