A tale of dStudio and Hahnemühle

Martin Lucas, Print Manager from dStudio based in Little Clacton, Essex have very kindly shared their experiences of using Hahnemühle paper and canvas with us:

We’re a small fine art print studio serving (mostly) self publishing artists with prints of their artwork, illustrations and photographs. We started life a long time ago as a picture framers, the print studio was started in 2012 as we noticed the artists we worked with started to ask about printing and where they could get reproductions of their works produced. Nearly 4 years later and we’ve printed for 1000’s of artists from all over the world.

Joel Tjintjelaar is a photographer, educator and writer with a passion for black & white photography, architecture and long exposure photography.

Red Ognita is a multi award-winning black & white fine art photographer and printer with his own studio redlab based in the Philippines. He speaks passionately and with extensive knowledge on creating fine art prints for artists from around the world and the importance of printing in this digital age.

Longing for Ireland – Photographs for St. Patrick Day 2015

Every year on March, 17 the Irish and the people of Irish descent in the world are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. It is a religious and cultural festival that commemorates the anniversary of the death of the Irish patron St. Patrick. This day is especially for those Irish who live in the diaspora, a day full of longing for the Emerald Isle. The German photographer Holger Hess is feeding this longing with wonderful images. His portfolio includes lovely landscapes in postcard idyll style as well as rugged, windswept coasts, mystical long exposures of the Atlantic up to abandoned, deserted valleys, reminding us why so many Irish people had to turn their backs on their homeland. We did a short Q&A with Holger Hess on the occasion of St. Patrick’s Day about his yearning images.

'Indiana Jones' on tour – with Hahnemühle Travel Booklets

“In the field I have a notebook, of course. Somewhere in my backpack or satchel. But I also have an additional ‘Hahnemühle Travel Booklet’ always at hand. This one’s for those occasional scenes, you find interesting or important enough to capture in a quick sketch. It needs to be small and thin, but yet sturdy enough for a couple of weeks in the pocket of my pants or a shirt. Even more important: the paper. When it comes to adding some colour, the wheat’s separating from the chaff – pretty annoying if you’re collection of travel sketches is ruined by watercolour bleeding through, isn’t it? That’s why I was pretty happy when I finally found the ‘Travel Booklets’. Rough and tough, quality paper, and pocket sized. Never going on a journey without one or two of these” stated Jens Notroff, German archaeologist, artist, world traveler. Read more on his expeditions which reminds on Indiana Jones.
