Photographing Textiles and Fabric Art
Photographing textiles can be very challenging in my opinion.
Good images are essential. It could mean the difference from being selected to being rejected from a competition or exhibition.
Every time that image appears, your reputation is on the line along with it, in my opinion.
I had to make a decision. Taking good images is way out of my league. I have a digital camera – somewhere, but I just don’t have the patience to go along with it.
Julie has been my photographer for the last couple of years and using her skills has been the best choice I ever made.
I know there are many who take great images of their work and that’s fantastic. I’m not one of you, unfortunately.
Julie is professional, knowledgable and willing to do what I ask. Yes, I pay, but it’s worth the cost to me.
Here’s a sample of her work – and photographing my work is not easy! I want people to see and feel that dimension.
Julie’s work is crisp and the colours true to life.

If you take your own images and want to exhibit widely, good images are mandatory.
Unfortunately there are a lot of poor images of work out there, so taking the time to research photographing textiles is not time wasted.
Remember, those images not only promote your work, but you as well, so good luck.

I plan to begin a series of posts on exhibiting your work. It’s something I love doing. There may be something you will find helpful.
