My images are printed on Moab Entrada Natural 300 gsm (heavy stock, no optical whiteners, and an enhanced matte finish), Canson Baryta Photographique 310 gsm (also a heavy stock with a semi-gloss to gloss finish; this is my paper of choice for black and white images); Canson Arches Aquarelle 310 gsm (a heavy watercolor paper with no optic brighteners perfect for those softer images featuring flowers, clouds, abstracts and such) or Red River Arctic Polar Satin (an all-purpose paper with a lovely luster finish). My prints are made in-house by me personally using Epson printers and Epson Ultra Chrome inks. Ultra Chrome inks having exceptional color saturation and color range and a long print life (up to 100 years). When it comes to prints, subject matter matters. A landscape may look better on one type of paper while an impressionistic image may look better on another. I want to provide you with the best print possible.
My prints are available “naked” (just the print which you can then have mounted, matted and framed as you choose) or “matted” using natural white 100% archival mat board and foam core backing.
All fine art prints are individually produced, signed and dated by the photographer in the lower right margin of the print. Additionally, matted prints are signed and dated on the mat below the lower right corner of the print.
Before ordering any print, here is something you need to know. Consider this an answer to a question you may not have thought of yet. When you receive your print, you may find yourself asking – why doesn’t the print look exactly like it does on the computer?
There are several reasons. We live in a digital age. We are used to seeing things on a computer monitor. While it is not something the average person, particularly if not of an artistic orientation, thinks about; a computer monitor needs to be color calibrated on a regular basis in order to maintain the integrity of the color spectrum. I calibrate my monitor weekly. My images look great on my monitor. On the other hand, my monitor at work (yes, I have a day job too) has never been color calibrated and my images look like… well not very good.
The second reason a print will look different from an image on the computer screen, is simply because it CAN’T look exactly the same. A photographic print uses the qualities of reflective light – the light bounces off the surface of the paper. The physics of that light is completely different from backlighting where the light passes through the image as is the case with a computer screen.
That is enough said about that subject. I do not bring this up to scare off anyone. Printed images, my printed images, are beautiful. All my customers say so. But they are different from what you see on the computer screen. Are the differences huge? No. I do everything I can to bring the two as close together as possible but in the end, you are looking at two different kinds of light.
Feel free to peruse my galleries. Almost all images that you find there can be printed in the sizes below. If you find an image you would like to order, do the following:
- Drop me an e-mail at email@example.com .
- Tell me the gallery and image name (it will appear below the image after you click on it to enlarge it).
- Tell me the size you are interested in and whether you wish the print “naked” or matted as described above.
- I will get back to you as quickly as possible (usually within 24 hours) to let know for certain that the image can be printed in the size requested and with the payment details (check, money order, PayPal) and shipping charges.
- Once payment arrangements are made, I will let you know approximately how long it will take until I ship your order.
