Formatrix was established in the westcountry area of the UK in 1992. Proprietor, Mike Whitfield has worked in imaging for more than 30 years, 15 of which were spent running a commercial studio in London's Covent Garden. Mike now specialises in fine art reproduction for artists and photographers offering state of the art scanning, digital capture and printing services.

The Formatrix imaging team includes John Melville who has worked for many years as a commercial still life photographer, initially in London, working in association with a number of prominent photographers including Bernard Phillips.

John moved to the South West in 1988 and has continued work in still life, specialising in fine art photography. John’s studio in Prospect Park, Exeter, is an Aladdin’s cave of props, supports, reflectors and custom made accessories, and he can often be found in his fully equipped workshop fashioning or improving one of his ingenious prototype devices.

Amongst Formatrix’s many clients are well known artists and award winning photographers, based locally, nationally and internationally.
