Buying Apple Computers for Photography

You can buy an Apple nearly anywhere… but photographers and imaging professionals should talk to someone who really understands the range and can help choose the right one for your photographic needs.

Specular can ensure that your new computer is configured with software from Adobe, Apple, Capture One and many others. We are also able to set you up with an appropriate colour managed solution including calibrating and profiling displays and printers. We will also integrate it into your existing working environment to ensure continuous smooth business operations.
