What our clients say:
“Peter Hatzipavlis is the epitome of passion and excellence with an uncanny ability to bring a photographic image into life. I have been collaborating with Peter on various projects since 2013, and his input in my work has been crucial both technically and aesthetically. Every time the collaboration leads into a stronger and more magnificent result. Having such support is without doubt a luxury for any artist working in this field.” – Hoda Afshar
“The reason that I have been involved with Peter for over 15 years at The PrintShop @ PSC is not only the passion and spirit of collaboration, but the supportive environment, and outcomes that exceed my expectations.” - Chris Köller.
“I can't say enough about The PrintShop @ PSC! I've worked with many labs in Melbourne, but none of them have come close to the outstanding quality The PrintShop produces consistently. Peter is a joy to work with and always goes the extra mile." - Ellie Wiliams. Pitter Patter Portraits.
"I couldn’t make my photographic works without Peter Hatzipavlis, well I could but they wouldn’t look anywhere near as good. He applies his immense photographic technical knowledge with the slightest touch to bring out dormant depths in my prints. I am very particular about my prints and in Peter I have found more of a collaborator than just a technician who helps me to achieve the vision I have for my work." - Sania Pahoki.
“Peter's excellent visual acuity and technical capacity are much valued resources for visual artists preparing and printing large scale exhibition photographs. Peter provides a steady hand and eye throughout the process." - Sonia Leber.
