Photographing your Artwork
We've provided two resources for artists on how to successfully photograph their artwork. Since this is a digital platform it is imperative to have good quality images. These resources should help you to achieve that.
1. "How to Photograph a Painting, Step by Step" by Artists Network Staff
2. "How to Document Your Artwork with Jannette Maedel" by the Surrey Art Gallery
The Langley Arts Council insurance policy does not provide coverage for exhibiting artists.
