About The Affinity Studio
Affinity Studio is a very different kind of company.
While Affinity Studio is the home of Jackson Ball, it is also all about collaboration with other fine and highly talented photographers around the world to explore new pristine locations and drink upstream from the herd. Photographers all have the same real needs - great subjects for unique compelling images and avenues to sell them. Affinity offers other professional and consumer photographers, and just nature lovers, the chance to get immersed into absolutely pristine and stunning tropical jungles and seascapes.
BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN CENTRAL AND SOUTH AMERICA
On land and underwater, from the Andes to the Amazon. From biologically diverse Panama and colorful Costa-Rica to the amazing salt-flats of Bolivia.From lush landscapes with unique land forms to animals and vegetation unlike anything in the northern hemisphere. Central America is a perfect new canvas.
WE ARE ALL BOTH TEACHER AND LEARNER
With more than 30 years of experience using medium and large format film and digital approaches, Jackson brings nature and wilderness into reality.. His passion is to capture pristine images using all manual technical cameras and reproduce the perfectly detailed and colored into large acrylic face mount prints. Like being there again! But other fine art photographers offer much as well. This is little different twist to typical Photography "Workshops". While Jackson is a resource and the "Adventure" organizer, we really all learn from each other every day and situation. A mutual Adventure and mutual learning experience.
FINE-ART PRINTS - SHOOT IMAGES THAT LOOK GREAT ON THE WALL
Affinity also is a fine-art printer with state of the technology Epson P9000 with HDX Pigment inks. We process and print from 16-bit image captures using inks rated for 150 years. Then the images are face-mounted to art-grade acrylic and backed with Dibond ACM and a structural aluminum mounting frame. We understand how to shoot images so that they look great printed at very large size. For our USA customers, we have an alliance with Aspen Creek Photo, who has the required Cromira imager and can print to Fuji Flex fine art substrate at 16-bits. Their process brings out the best in these ultra-high detail and true color images. The quality of the Acrylic Face Mount Art they produce is excellent and the only company we trust to deliver high quality every time.
Our collaborative business means that if we add YOUR images to our high-end Acrylic Gallery, then they will be shown and sold to hotels, resorts, restaurants, homes and businesses throughout out the expanding Central American markets.
