We print our photographs on an aluminium using a "dye-sublimation" process! And we print HUGE, up to 5 ft. wide! The images come out beautiful, with an incredible 3d effect. It's like looking through a window into another world! This requires us to have high standards for image quality. No, you do not need a $30,000 100PM full frame camera, $10,000 lens, and a brand new MacBook Pro to create great images!
Creativity & technique are much more important, and an entry level DSLR used properly will go a long way! Reducing motion blur with a solid tripod or proper camera settings, proper noise reduction, sharpening, and post-production can are some of the keys!
We have no limits or restrictions on how you post-process your images. You are an artist and are creating art, so create it in your vision. When we review submissions. the sets that make our jaws drop with complimentary background information which teaches us something new about the world, are the ones we select.
HOW IT WORKS
SUBMIT A SET
Submit a set of 5 images. They may be of the same type, such as "History", "People", "Long Exposure", etc, or random images. You must be the one who captured the image (we may ask for proof just to be sure)! Each image must have a 400 word minimum description as well as the location where it was taken - which adds context to the image.
GET AN INVITE
When we are ready to add more photographers to the collective, we will review all submissions and select those who we feel best fits what we are looking for. This criteria includes image creativity, context, and image quality. Those selected will receive an invite via email. Once confirmed, each member will receive a [email protected] email address, a biographical page on the site, 100 personal business cards, and will receive a brainwork! art swag bag!
SET YOUR PRICES
Every member of the brainwork! art collective gets to set their own prices for their art. We will give you our cost for producing the print, which includes printing, shipping, and other costs, and you get to decide what you would like the final price shown to the customer will be. Every penny above our costs will be sent to you once the purchase is complete.
When someone sees your art and wants to purchase it, whether it was already hanging in their house or hanging in a restaurant they were eating at, we take care of everything - printing, quality control, shipping, customer service, payments, etc! No work required on your end; just get paid. It couldn't be any simpler!
PHOTOS ADDED TO CIRCULATION
Once you have accepted the invite and set your prices, your photos will be added to our website and we will print a test set to ensure quality. Once the prints pass quality control, it is added to our collection, and will enter the rotation of prints that we send out!
