Colour management – Leicester, UK

Making colour work for you

Based in Leicester, we can provide you with independent colour management advice in conjunction with our training activities

We work in Leicestershire, the UK East Midlands and throughout the UK.

Reviews and articles

We have a large collection of reviews, articles and tutorials on this site, designed to help improve your understanding of the subject. There are links to Keith Cooper’s colour management related articles further down this page.

Our expertise originally stems from our own need to produce the highest quality fine art prints and accurate digital capture of images.

Fully Independent

We do not directly sell hardware or software, so our independent advice is usually aimed at helping fellow photographers get the best results.

We can demonstrate any of the many colour management devices and systems shown on this site.

If you are not sure of why you should be getting into colour management, call on us for a short chat?

We’re happy to offer direct advice as part of our commercial services.

Client advice

Colour management is not rocket science – you -can- do a lot of it yourself.

We’re happy to provide our commercial photography clients with help and advice relating to colour management issues, both where where it relates to our work, and more general matters such as monitor calibration.
