A little about our small family: a team of photographers

 

We care deeply about photography, photographic prints, and the person behind the lens. No one does what we do. We give every one their own individual Photoshop expert, on demand. We have revived the archaic profession of the “printmaster," bringing it to a new generation. We've mastered the art of preserving epic moments, beautifully.

 
 

THE TEAM

Rubin

Michael Rubin
Founder & Chief Photo Evangelist

Rubin's pedigree swings wide: making movies with George Lucas and Bernardo Bertolluci; premastering CDs for the Grateful Dead; developing the “paint-your-own pottery” studio industry; years at Netflix... but through it all he’s been a passionate amateur photographer. He left his Senior Innovator role at Adobe in 2016 to focus on his fine art photography. But even as he began to show and sell his work, the frustrations he experienced in printing and framing combined with noting advances in smartphone images led to the creation of Neomodern.
