Meet The Team

With photography backgrounds rooted in the days of running darkrooms in our parents' houses, we're well-versed in traditional photographic print processes and the latest digital printing methods. Combining our expertise in analog and digital brings together the best of both worlds: maintaining the look of beautiful chromogenic prints with fast turnaround time and color accuracy that could only be accomplished with digital technology. Our experiences in the fine art printing field span from portfolio prints to gallery exhibitions, including mounting and installation. We encourage a collaborative environment here at Proof Imaging, where we openly share our extensive knowledge and are sensitive to our clients' individual needs. Our goal is to provide our clients (fine artists, photographers, designers, etc.) stunning, high quality digital-c prints and gallery-ready finished pieces at an affordable cost.

3 Kevin Kornemann

Kevin's interest in photography and imaging started in high school when he began interning in the black and white darkroom at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC. He went on to graduate from RIT's college of Imaging Arts and Science in 1996 and was ready to start his career. He moved to NYC and arrived, suitcase in hand, at Duggal's digital imaging department for his first day as a professional. Bigger and better things awaited however, and he landed a job at the hot web studio Razorfish, where he hacked up HTML and graphics. His next move was to Jill Greenberg Studio to set up her in-house digital imaging department, and then to Shoot Digital to sharpen his retouching teeth. Finally in 2001, Kevin set up his own retouching studio, now LightPrint. Kevin enjoys spending time with his two daughters, Sofia and Stella and his lovely wife Athena.

Julius was born on a warm summer day in North Jersey and raised in the fine Garden State. She attended the Rochester Institute of Technology and acquired a BFA in photography/graphic design/print media. Julius currently lives/fervently bikes in Brooklyn, NY. Her preoccupations include film, retouching, painting, playing ukulele, dogs and Russian literature.

3 Ivan Huang

Ivan Huang was raised in Canada, and received his BFA in Photography from the University of California Santa Cruz. Ivan enjoys exploring the science behind art, and the art behind science. He often spends his free time reading culinary books, scientific non-fictions, and graphic novels. Having travelled to many countries for photography, Ivan now lives in Brooklyn, and is very happy to bring his expertise and dedication to Proof. Ivan is also training to be an aspiring sommelier and a cat whisperer.

  • I only recently found DigitalCPrint but have sent them many images to print. Every print has been high quality and very affordable. Even though I'm on the west coast, I find the staff super response -- more so than my local lab -- and very knowledgeable. Also, their turn around time is amazing. I highly recommend this lab!
