       ChromaLuxe Logo 2013-02 low

SCHELLE, BELGIUM | ChromaLuxe EMEA has recently become the newest partner of FEP. ChromaLuxe aims to grow its network in the world of Professional Photography and aspires to become a preferred solution for HD quality prints all over Europe.
ChromaLuxe became a partner of the Belgian Association for Professional Photographers in 2013 and attended many of their events. The Belgian association is a very active and interactive group of professionals who welcomed ChromaLuxe with enthusiasm and expertise. They have given ChromaLuxe a very valuable insight into the photographer’s artistic mind, so ChromaLuxe can even better respond to his needs.
Giuseppe Scozzi, CEO of the Federation of European Photographers: “The FEP is very happy to have ChromaLuxe as a partner company. It is a chance for the single photographer to increase his business and the FEP is the right forum to introduce this product to 50.000 photographers..."
ChromaLuxe is a new technology of transfer printing, and it is a new market for photographers. It is an HD “metal print” in fascinating quality. It opens new opportunities for the photographer to present to his customers “something new”.
By partnering the European Federation, ChromaLuxe intends to act as both a student and a teacher to the European Professional Photographer. On the one hand we are aware that there is a lot to be learned from a network of pan-European photographers and their cultural variances, on the other hand we aim to inspire the professional photographer to choose ChromaLuxe as their preferred print choice for commercial, social and fine art photography.
