Colorbrate is a program, launched by Robert Miller in South Africa, to recognise photographers who have taken steps to educate themselves about colour management and how it needs to be part of each and every photographer’s workflow. The photographers who have taken this step have done so to the benefit of themselves and their clients and deserve to be recognised and differentiated from those who take no regard for the quality of colour they produce.
The Colorbrate logo will not be a certification of that photographer’s colour or a guarantee that a particular photographer is 100% colour accurate but rather an indication that they have taken steps to ensure they under stand the issues and challenges, how these issues can be resolved and that they have the equipment required to implement their own internal colour management.
As many will know, Robert is an X-Rite Coloratti and was a big fan of the X-Rite systems long before becoming one. He has used a number of the systems on the market and giving his extensive colour background, he personally feels the most comfortable with those from X-Rite. Having said that, the Colorbrate program is not in any way endorsed by X-rite and he feels that photographers with other entry to mid end colour management solutions or have taken the time to educate themselves should also be recognised so the program will essentially have three tiers of recognition being Colour Pro, Colour Managed and Colour Wise.
