Nadav Kander

One of the worlds most successful photographers Nadav Kander born in Israel, brought up and schooled in South Africa and moved to London in the Eighties, had the unprecedented accolade of being asked by the director of photography for the New York Times magazine Kathy Ryan to photograph Obama’s people. Silvertone International had the privilege […]

Andreas is the consummate German perfectionist behind a computer. I know that I can give him an untouched raw file  and on the basis of a brief conversation; he will produce something beyond my ability to imagine in my own work.  A great retoucher, he is capable of bringing out detail which I did not […]

Silvertone and Andreas Kahlau are responsible for the scanning and grading of my negatives and producing digital prints for my exhibitions. The quality of these prints are so superb that many specialists can hardly see the difference between these and the Silver hand print. – www.rogerballen.com

I’ve been with Silvertone for many years and the scans and prints have unfailingly been of an outstanding quality, absolutely state of the art. The service is fast, efficient and always accommodating. In short, this laboratory is top of the range;  I wouldn’t go anywhere else. (website in progress. To be announced soon.)

I could print my digital work myself….It’s cheaper… But I don’t! Why not? Because then I wouldn’t get all the advice… knowledge… support … and cups of good coffee… I get from Andreas @ Silvertone. All photographers need unbiased ’mentor ship’ …and good advice born out of years of experience…especially ’pro’s’. It’s how we get better […]

I’m an artist and photographer working with Andreas at Silvertone has been a unique experience for me. They combine extraordinary levels of cutting edge digital printing knowledge and technical skill with a deeply human and personal investment in the success and beauty of whichever project it is that you bring to them. Working with them […]
