because we care more about your growth in business and as an artist than
any other lab in Hollywood. We pioneered the use of digital technology for headshots and as we continue
to broaden our knowledge, we share it with you. We realize that photographers
are vital to our lab's success and we are committed to developing a mutally
rewarding partnership. We specialize in
processing and printing your digital files.
Many people believe that if they shoot digitally
that the files are ready to print. In reality, even digital files
need processing. All digital files need some
amount of color correction and sharpening before they are ready for viewing
on a screen or printing on paper. We perform these simple corrections for
All proof sheets, online proofs, 4x6 work prints and custom 8x10 prints have the photographers credit. We believe in promoting you, the photographer and helping your business grow.
Argentum was the first headshot lab to offer
photographers online image viewing of all their images.
We will upload your photo shoot on our website for easy convenient viewing from the comfort of your home or office. You can order your prints from our online proofs. It's as simple as point and click. Your online proofsheets will be available for a month from the date they are uploaded.
We also offer disc storage for up to two years but we are not responsible for any lost or damaged discs.
Argentum was the first lab to offer "hard copy" physical proof sheets from digital files. These are oversized proofsheets 10in by 15in with the photographer's logo and information printed on each sheet. They are available in Color or B/W.
Our 4x6 work prints (in color or B/W) are great for helping actors narrow down which images they want to eventually have made into 8x10s. The work prints all have the photographers credit and the file number printed on the image. This helps identify which image they want enlarged.
We also offer 9x12 portfolio prints and various borders to choose from.
Here are some things to consider should you want to submit a photo session
1. Submit stuff on CD or DVD, formatted for either PC or Mac
2. Filenames should be short and should not include any special or odd characters. For
information on batch file renaming in Photoshop, click here.
3. Do not duplicate file names. You can easily prevent duplicates by using
only one folder per disc.
4. File specs should be either 8x10 or 4x6, at 300dpi in RGB mode.
