Workshop Overview


Frustrated with bad pictures of your paintings? Trying to submit to a show but the colour is all wrong? Are your images washed out and everything is askew? And you are not sure how to create 300ppi JPG images of your artwork for your portfolio?


The most crucial task for you when submitting to a show or when creating your portfolio for a membership application is to make sure that the artwork photographs you’re including are of the highest quality possible. Whether taken by camera or phone, the photographs must be in perfect condition to convey the true beauty and essence of your works.


This course is designed for artists who want to learn on how best to photograph their art with either a smartphone, a tablet, or a digital point and shoot camera.

Kato will teach the basic processes involved in lighting, photographing, importing and editing images. You will take away practical ways to improve your artwork photographs and increase your chances to successfully submit your artwork images for shows and membership applications.


Please send your questions that you would like to ask Kato about using your camera/phone/tablet and software in advance to
