Colour management - Leicester, UK

Based in Leicester, we can provide you with independent colour management advice services in Leicestershire, the UK East Midlands and throughout the UK.

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

Reviews and articles - We have a large collection on this site, to help improve your understanding of the subject. There are links to Keith Cooper's articles further down this page.

Independent advice

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.
