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.more
A rather unconventional series by London-based artist Astrid Schulz will be exhibited in Saarbruecken (Germany) for a second time from April, 13 to May, 13 2016. Inspired by the content of the novel “The Daughters of Egalia” (by Norwegian writer Gerd Mjøen Brantenberg) the photographer questions social stereotypes and photographic clichés. For her project ‘Hairdressers’ Astrid swapped gender based positions – her protagnists are men at a hair saloon, wearing curlers on their heads and in their beards. ‘Hairdressers’ have been selected to highlight the opening event at the German Hairstylists convention in Saarbrücken at Handwerkskammer des Saarlandes (Trade Cooperation of Saarland).more

“Capturing a moment and printing it on paper has always been magical to me. When I switched from film to digital I strived to find a paper that would match my darkroom experience. Hahnemühle Digital FineArt papers bring my photos to life with incredible depth and sharpness … ” stated celebrity photographer Mark Mann who mainly shoots US actors. He has cooperated with Leica and Hahnemühle for many years now, a cooperation that makes us proud, and has resulted in a Q&A we would like to share.
Here at Hahnemühle we were lucky enough to grab an interview with the talented photographer Travis Hodges. Based in the streets of London where photographic inspiration comes alive, Travis finds his muse amongst people.
Hodges is absolutely fascinated by, not just celebrities, but also ordinary people. He likes to get stuck into these projects and examine who we are as a person and what it is exactly that makes us who we are. Read more to find out about Travis Hodges’ inspirations and recommendations of Hahnemühle’s paper for prints of his contemporary photography.
“I only print with Hahnemühle paper. It really is the very best for my work” stated British travel photographer Peter Aitchison in our Q&A.
30 years ago, Peter began his career training as a studio assistant. He then eventually moved on to being a stills photographer on The Big Breakfast – a British light entertainment television show on screen till 2002. Through various other jobs and projects, he soon realised that travel was his main feature. This is when Peter decided to focus more on his travelling projects. He has visited many countries and main cities including Morocco, India, Paris and New York.

Captivating, touching, glorifying are the portraits of the British photographer Platon. He photographed traditionally on film, scans his negatives and retouched his large format exhibition prints to the smallest detail in his New York studio. “Handcraft to handcraft. I use the genuine artist papers manufactured by Hahnemühle to reproduce the finest tones and contrasts” Platon stated on his paper choice.
