Announcement   Welcome to my shop.
Here you will find high quality Giclee prints for sale of my own work, some which are available in various sizes.
I also provide professional digital imaging services to Fine Artists, Illustrators, and Photographers that require scanning and printing of their own work.
I offer high end (wet) scanning of transparencies and negatives from all formats, and scanning original artwork, drawings and paintings up to A0 in full colour.
I also provide stationery and flyer design and design logos for businesses.
Other services include plan printing full colour for Architects, builders, real estate developers, and surveyors.

I print anything up to 42" wide on a variety of fine art papers. All my papers are sourced from leading paper specialists and I have chosen selected papers for fine art, posters, documents & photographs.
I also print onto original newspaper stock which I obtain from a newspaper printing company. This is useful for recreating vintage advertising.
I use the latest 12 colour archival pigmented ink system available instead of the previous 8 colour systems.
The 12-colour system provides exceptionally improved colour accuracy on neutral tones and greys removing problematic colour casts often seen in older technology. Monochrome prints are breathtaking, and I print everything in Adobe colour space for increased colour gamut especially useful for pushing the limits on images that have exceptionally high saturation or fluorescents captured in the original digital file.
I carry out all work on a calibrated 30" monitor to ensure all colour and tonal editing is faithful to the original artwork and digital files received from clients.
I work in a grey painted room to cut down ambient lighting that can cause problems with colour editing and dark shutters on the windows, which provide a constant colour temperature regardless of time of day.
This ensures all printed material is a close a match as possible to the original material supplied and matches the image viewed on my monitor.
My camera used for most of my photography is a Mamiya 645AFD with digital back.

Please note:
Some prints are available in various sizes, if you purchase a smaller size from any print available in various sizes, you might receive a partial postage refund if the final postage costs to me are less than listed. The postage cost you see listed on any print in my store is to cover for the largest size available.

I hope you may find something of interest and thank you for browsing.

About

Professional Digital Imaging Services

Chiltern Image Service was founded in 2001 by me, Mike Humphrey, a specialist in digital photographic restoration, working in the industry since 1997.

My company services also include Plan Copying, Photographic Scanning, Stationery & Flyer Design, & Large Format Giclee Printing up to 42” wide. I also scan and restore original rare and hard to find posters, photographs, paintings and documents of high quality to a museum standard and offer 1st generation reproduction print copies.

All prints are reproduced from 1st generation high resolution digital scans taken directly from original images in my own collection and from other collections where the owner has given me full copyright to use the images. On occasions, I may re-create images and the product description will specify whether the print is produced from digital scans from my original material or a digital re-creation.
I use a 42 inch wide 12 ink colour Giclee printer, and use only high grade fine art archival papers.
I carry out all, preparation, scanning, restoration, colour correction, tonal editing and printing, providing me full control over all jobs from start to finish.

The majority of my digital images for sale are photographed with a Mamiya 645AFD medium format camera, and all scanned images are from transparencies, negatives, and the odd glass plate. All transmissive scans (negatives, transparencies) are wet mounted in evaporative spirit solution for smooth graduations in tonal range during the scan process and great care is taken to achieve the optimum histogram on highlights and shadows without any clipping (lost pixel data) during all my post scanning work.
All digital scanning and editing is produced in 16bit Adobe RGB on a calibrated 30 inch monitor.
All prints available here on ETSY are printed in Adobe RGB for maximum colour gamut.

Great care is taken when creating my final digital master files to ensure that they match the original material as accurately as possible. I believe it will be hard to find better quality photographic prints than those available from Chiltern Image Service.

I am always looking to increase the variety of images in my store that may appeal to the majority.
As new images become available, they will be added so please check back regularly.

My personal interest is collecting original negatives and transparencies of all forms of transport from 1940’s to 1960’s, with specific interest on RAF Bovingdon airfield in Hertfordshire England. I am always looking to obtain anything photographic regarding Bovingdon airfield no matter what the content. I am also interested in collecting original Cine film taken at Bovingdon. If you have any material that you are willing to either donate or sell then please contact me via details given.
I am always interested to see what you may have.
