Gino’s Color Management and Digital Photography Expertise
Gino’s color management expertise comes from his education and real-world experiences. He helps digital photography businesses, corporate creative studios, graphic design workgroups, individuals, and entire organizations set up in-house photo labs with color management and digital workflow systems.
Gino advises and educates his clients on digital equipment purchases so they don’t waste time and resources experimenting with equipment that doesn’t accomplish their goals. He helps them utilize the equipment and software to maximize their investment.
“Gino is a remarkable and talented business professional, photographer, and digital workflow expert. As the director of a corporate creative studio, I manage a team of designers and a full-time photographer. I hired Gino to evaluate, problem solve, and redesign our color-management workflow process. He was quick to understand our needs and developed a process for our team that has reduced time and cost significantly.” – Caroll Duque, Director of Creative Services – Norwood Promotional Products, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BIC USA, Inc.
“The time I spent with Gino has paid for itself a hundred times over. I no longer waste money on software that doesn’t fit my workflow or equipment that won’t do the job. That alone is critical to keeping costs down. Workshops are fine for some, but Gino’s personal touch is much more cost effective. No matter what you need, he has the ability to teach you and set up everything you need from the shoot to the final print.” – Billie Redemeyer Studio
“When we initially brought Gino on board, we had some resistance from some of our company’s participants. But, he pressed forward and pushed us light years ahead of where we were a year and a half ago. With his guidance, we’ve updated most of our computers and trained staff to perform weekly/bi-weekly calibration of monitors. In addition, we’ve purchased an Epson 4900 and two additional GMG on-board proofing systems for our Epson 7900 printers. But, we are most excited about how we can reproduce consistent color proofs from our facility here in Indiana and our facility in Wisconsin.” – Creative Converting, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hoffmaster Group, Inc.
“We work heavily with photo professionals and were receiving a few complaints. This led us to waste materials for re-prints. We knew a change had to be made. Fortunately, we knew who to call. Gino helped us from start to finish. He provided us with a thorough education of color management. We have virtually eliminated all customer complaints due to mis-matched color and can now correctly instruct how to reach our monitor and output settings for flawless prints. Without this service, we definitely would not be where we are today!” – Visions On Canvas
