In The Objective you rent the best equipment to make your own images at your own pace, in complete freedom and with the necessary guidance. You will also get to know other image creators, with whom you can exchange ideas and who knows, start collaborations. This way you no longer have to work in solitude with average equipement on an island. The Objective also sees it as its task to help promote its loyal, talented artists to a wide audience.
/ USE OF THE WORKSPACE
In The Objective you can enjoy the advantages of a professional workspace, without having to make heavy investments or make structural commitments yourself. You rent the workspace with the specific material you need and pay by hour or day. If you like to work at ease without worrying about time, it is better to book a day or part of a day where you immediately enjoy a cheaper rate.

/ EXTRA MATERIAL
When making prints, you need equipment that is not included in the rate of using the workspace, but you can buy it on the spot. An overview is given below. These prices are only for the material and therefore do not apply if you outsource the printing work to The Objective, where the price calculation is structured differently. Feel free to ask for a custom proposal via the contact form.

Because there are a number of practical rules for sticking prints on dibond or forex or for stretching a canvas, you should preferably decide how you want to finish the print before printing. Feel free to ask in the studio what points of attention there are. Are you convinced of your print/cloth and would you like it to stick or stretch? The Objective is happy to offer you the service so that you don't have to move around. The following week you can come and pick up the finished product in Het Lobief. Prices on request.
