Phantasea Photography is Heide Friedrich, first and foremost a photographer, supported by her partner Glen. Having printed our work through diverse labs, we felt we were delivered with over priced or mass-produced prints (or worse, both) instead of a high standard of professionally customized prints. This frustration provided the catalyst for us to gain complete control over the entire printing process and hence, Phantasea Photography was born. We are located in Auckland, NZ.
We aim for a qualitative, customized and affordable service.
qualitative: We are printing on an Epson Stylus Pro 4000 model - Epson produces the best wide-format printers in the world and most other professional labs are using Epson printers. Additionally, Epson's Ultrachrome inks are the ultimate choice when it comes to longevity of your prints. Their rated life scans before noticeable fading (depending on paper used and display conditions) is between 70 and 150 years. The printing material (premium paper and canvas) are of professional quality. All canvas prints are finished off with permanent clear protective coating. You can read independent test results on the Wilhelm Research site. Alternatively paper prints can be ordered framed, using acid free materials and UV resistant quality glass. We offer customized framing museum-style service.
customized: We are happy to deal directly with you and be responsive to your wishes and requirements for our work. For prints from our portfolio we supply custom sizes. For all other orders any individual requirements will be taken care of - may it be sizing, cropping, adjusting of colors, contrast or imperfections in the photo itself. We will check with you before the final print and make sure you are happy with the work.
affordable: Our prices are competetive, as we undertake our business not to earn our living, but because we enjoy what we do and want to bring that joy to you.
We provide you with professionally produced paper and canvas prints - for your home & living, office & bach environments and gifts (Weddings, Christmas, Birthdays, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Valentines Day, Graduations or Christenings), amongst others. We are happy to do commission work. Please browse our portfolio or send us your photo now.
