Photographic art is becoming an increasingly popular medium of art collection, but for novices, knowing where to start can be a tricky navigation. House & Leisure recently visited Orms in Cape Town and found out just how easy they have made it to acquire beautiful photographs.
What exactly does Orms Photo Art do?
The purpose of Orms Photo Art is to make the buying of photographic art a less daunting experience and to create a more accessible platform for the public while simultaneously providing one for photographers to showcase their work.
When was Orms established?
Orms was established in 1996 and has been evolving constantly ever since.
What is the secret to staying relevant in the business of arts and photographs?
Keeping up with technology is essential. ‘Orms was also one of the first photo labs in the country to go digital and have kept up with the photographic advance from the start’. Orms has created a virtual gallery that can be used to both exhibit and make photographs available for purchase at the same time.
What is setting Orms Photo Art apart from other stock libraries?
Orms Photo Art is bridging the gap that exist between stock library images, mass produced prints and high end art and it is able to serve even the collector who is searching for limited edition prints without the added gallery fees or commissions.
Once I have chosen and purchased my photo what printing options are available to me?
Orms offers full customisation options and there are different mediums to choose from on which your image can be printed which include traditional paper, acrylic glass, wood, metal and many more. There is of course a wide variety of frames to choose from as well.
Who can exhibit on Orms Photo Art ?
Currently there are 121 photographers who exhibit on Orms who’s suitability is rigorously selected by a panel. However Orms is not limited to only professional photographers and anyone can submit their photographic art for consideration through an online process.
