Paper prints retain the traditional feel of photographic paper, and offer both high resolution and the most accurate color reproduction available with modern printing. My fine art prints are made with 100% cotton rag photo paper, quality pigment inks, and depending on display conditions and choice of framing materials have a Wilhelm Imaging Research archival rating of up to 200 years for color, and up to 400 years for black-and-white prints. I have 28 years of professional darkroom and digital printing experience, and take both pride and great satisfaction in personally making all prints in house with the latest photo reproduction equipment. An archival, photographic print represents the height of fine art image making, and is a delight simply to hold when viewing. Since the origin of the first photographic print in 1826, the paper print remains the standard of artistic beauty by which all prints are measured.
Featuring fine art prints under conservation glass and 8 ply mat board, my framed prints offer the classic look we have come to expect from traditional photography. Throughout the framing process, I use only high quality archival materials, and all work is done exclusively in studio by myself. Prints are made with archival 100% cotton rag paper, set in luxurious 8-ply off white mat board, and topped with Tru Vue Conservation Clear glass rated at 99% UV filtration. For framing material, my house molding is a Nielsen N93-150 profile in brushed Florentine silver. The Nielsen frame offers a contemporary look with clean lines, stands 1” tall, and has a 3/8” flat face. My goal in framing photography is to create a clean look which blends into room space, yet fully presents and showcases the subject matter to viewer.
Canvas prints offer vibrant color, have a bold contemporary look, and lack the distracting reflections inherent to both framed prints under glass and metal prints. Rooms with large windows or highly reflecting interior lighting, make canvas prints an excellent choice for these difficult spaces. Canvas prints look fantastic displayed with or without a frame, and represent the best price point when purchasing large pieces for big walls. Oversized canvas prints, in sizes upwards of 64 x 150” is one of my specialties, and I take great pride in printing canvas in house, with only the highest quality archival material. My canvas selection features Epson’s fine art Signature Series matte canvas, with smooth weave, to which I hand apply a luster finish. The canvas print is then gallery mounted to heavy wood stretcher bars, and comes complete with hanging wire. Canvas prints are lightweight and easy to install in your home or business space. Canvas prints have a gentle feel, rich with color, and lend themselves to complementing a room without overwhelming it.
Aluminum Prints offer vivid colors, sharp resolution and a luminosity that jumps off the wall. Typically metal prints are left unframed, which gives them a modern look with clean lines. Something to be aware of with metal prints, is the high reflectivity of their glossy polished surface. Windows and interior lighting can strongly reflect from these prints, so placement and proper lighting are important considerations when choosing metal. Conversely, if there’s a place in your home or office that needs brightening up, metal prints can offer solutions not possible with canvas or traditionally framed photography. Metal prints are my only offering which has to be outsourced for printing. If you like a vivid look, metal prints might be the modern look for your home.
