Established in 2016 after merging our business with Light Rain, Dostal Print Studio provides artists, photographers, graphic professionals, and curators with essential services, including direct digital image capture of art, custom film scans, archival quality fine art printing, and expert retouching.


Founder & Art Capture Photographer

With an earlier professional experience that included professional photography and computer expertise, Steve started messing with digital imaging in it’s infancy in 1992. In 1994 he founded Light Rain to serve the needs of Photographers and Graphics professionals with the services he still offers today. Of course technology has changed over the years and Light Rain has kept up, gaining valuable experience through the years. When capture and print technologies became good enough, Light Rain added artists to its client base.  Steve has a degree from Stanford in Filmmaking with a minor in photography, and is married with 3 kids.
